Trivia

The expedition that this film centers around, while containing fictional characters, is based on a real expedition ordered by President of Texas Mirabeau Lamar to annex New Mexico to the Republic of Texas in 1841. The use of black and white beans to decide who to execute and who to spare is borrowed the Mier expedition, which took place the following year. See more »

Quotes

Bill: Me, I'll shoot myself in the head if I got time.
Bigfoot Wallace: Well, that could go wrong, too. Don't be sticking no gun in your mouth unless it's a shotgun.
Augustus McCrae: Why not? It's hard to miss your head with a gun in your mouth.
Bigfoot Wallace: No, it ain't. That bullet could ricochet off a tooth... come out your ear. You'd be still healthy enough to torture for a week. You shove the butt of a gun against your eyeball... and pull. Now, that's sure. Then if some squaw comes along and chews your privates, you won't know the difference.

One whopper of an Epic
21 December 2003 | by (Pensacola, FL) – See all my reviews

What a truly wonderful miniseries.I laughed, I cried and I even saw a British Lady riding nude through the desert. It scared the dickens out of the "savages." There was never a dull moment. From the time the series began to the end this band of Texans lost comrades but kept up the fight. How many ways can you kill a Texan? This picture shows you. Seriously; I really great epic to be enjoyed on DVD...all 270 minutes of it in one sitting.
