Trivia

Filmed in southeastern Arizona in and near the Chiricahua Mountains National Monument, this was the actual land patrolled, protected, and fought in by the famed 10th Cavalry. This all black unit is celebrated at Ft. Huachuca at the Post Military Museum. Fort Huachuca has been in continuous operations since 1877, one of the oldest U.S. Army forts in existence. See more »

Goofs

The scene when the soldiers are singing "Precious Lord, Take My Hand" while burying an officer is erroneous. The year the movie depicts is 1880. Thomas Dorsey, known as the "Father of Black Gospel Music" and the composer of the song, was born in 1899, nineteen years later, and he hadn't written the song until 1932. See more »

One of the worst films I have seen - Pure Propaganda!
10 July 2006 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Why are the revisionists in Hollywood content to produce worthless drivel that no one cares about? Fiction that professes to produce some sort of truth is nauseating to watch. Boring work like this is only worthy of a gullible TV audience, victims of TV and Hollywood propaganda that does nothing to disseminate the truth. Danny Glover should be ashamed of himself and his performance, to be taken in by such trite, politically correct dialogue. Poorly acted, because there is no script or story or truth, this movie is, simply put, just a complete waste of time. This movie is not worth reviewing.

I think historical research by people who can glean truth out of historical records would have benefited this project immensely. Why can't Hollywood producers do that anymore?
