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.

I grew up in the Shenandoah Valley of Virginia where Mosby made a name for himself. In all the political correctness of recent times history is forgetting that the South, and this area of Virginia in particular, was invaded and systematically damaged by a marauding foreign army and many people fought against this invasion not necessarily defending the institution of slavery but defending their homes and friends. The Gray Ghost series certainly portrays this part of history with a dashing hero and gallant soldiers. It made an impression on a young Virginian and has stuck with me for all these years. I still think of Mosby and his men as heroes (as well as many other Confederate soldiers/sympathizers, including my g-g-grandfather). Enjoyed the series immensely !
