Airybelle Sumner:As an Alabama patriot, I implore you to come back inside.
Buck Burnett:Oh, I don't think we'll do that ma'am. A man can get bit once by a rattler by accident; if he gets bit twice, well, that's just bein' stupid.
Airybelle Sumner:Then please accept my apology and my gratitude for the brave and noble thing you're doin'. I mean that from the bottom of my heart.
Buck Burnett:Ma'am, we don't know much about this here war, but as long as there are ladies like you that support it like you do, then I'm sure we'll win. We'll remember what you said when we get to war. It'll help us from bein' tired.

A good 'home sick from work' movie, 30 December 2001
Author: scottspindoctor from South Carolina

Journey To Shiloh is a good TV movie for when you're home sick from work; or, can't sleep in the middle of the night. It's a good story and moves quickly (too quickly, really, for it loses a lot of possibilities in character development). Still, the dialogue isn't that cheesy - and you don't feel worse for having watched it.
