Very accurate for the late 1950's.

This show was the best show on TV when I was a small child. I have had a lifetime obsession with the "Confederacy" and the Civil War, and the man I most admire in history is Colonel John Singleton Mosby.

He started out as a private in JEB Stuart's cavalry and one winter convinced Stuart to let him take 10 or 12 men to harass the enemy out of boredom and the legend was born. He was the only partisan ranger group that Robert E Lee approved of and unfortunately was instrumental in lengthening the war by keeping tens of thousands of Union soldiers out of the main thrust against Lee for fear that Mosby would sneak into Washington city and kidnap Abraham Lincoln. And because of his slight build was once captured and exchanged because the Yankees thought he was just a private. Someone MUST find this and let us die-hard fans see it just one more time.

Or better yet have HBO develop a new series. Two seasons would be great.
