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.

My Favorite Weekly Show
23 October 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

As an 11 year old, I'd always schedule my time to see this show. The theme song was the tune to 'Yellow Rose of Texas' which played during the opening lines. While saddened by it's end, I was not aware, until now that it (not surprisingly)had been a victim of early 'political correctness'.

To read that it attempted historical accuracy was a pleasant surprise, considering many westerns of that era. There were other shows and movies of that time which also were kinder to the Confederacy. One was 'Drums in the Deep South' with Guy Madison.

I'm now pretty fuzzy on most of the episodes. Having more recently read about the main character, I learned a couple more facts:

(1) Yes, Grant wanted him dead, and the main person Mosby often outfoxed was a young officer named Custer. (2) After the war, Mosby joined the Republican Party, which ironically had played a part in pushing the South into the war to begin with. Coincidentally, another general (Longstreet) earned more ire from many of his former compatriots for doing the same thing.

Maybe some day, I'll get to see the series again through more mature eyes.
