Two-parter from Walt Disney's television series was released theatrically in some outlets, and for good reason. It's a nicely cast and well-directed bit of history, earmarked with the Disney company's homespun touch. Young Kevin Corcoran is determined to join a rag-tag Army unit during Civil War times, acting as the troop's "drummer boy". Brian Keith is the gruff-but-likable sergeant who approves his involvement. Appealing history lesson layered with adventure from the book by James A. Rhodes. Director James Neilson, a mainstay at the Disney studios throughout the sixties, does his usual customary work. **1/2 from ****
