Quotes

[first lines of each episode]
Maj. John Singleton Mosby: [narrating] We took our men from Texas, Kentucky, Virginia / The mountains and the backwoods and plains. / We put them under orders - guerilla fighting orders / And what we lacked in numbers / We made up with speed and brains. / To the Rebs and Yankee strangers / They called us Mosby's Rangers. / Both North and South / They knew our fame. / The Gray Ghost is what they called me, / John Mosby is my name.

An excellent show.
30 October 2005 | by See all my reviews

I think this was one of the better shows on TV. It was fairly accurate to history which was unusual for Hollywood. Tod Andrews was great as Mosby. This show showed a side of the Confederacy that some people didn't like. It actually showed a confederate as a hero. I believe that this was the reason the show did not last more than one season. All in all this was a very good show and one I would recommend especially to civil war buffs. The shows were based on events that happened as Major Mosby and his troops fought for what they believed. It is a shame that we do not have more episodes of this show to be able to view now. I plan on getting all of the episodes on DVD so that I can enjoy them again. I watched this show when I was a kid and I like it as much now as I did then.
