During the 1864 battle of the Wilderness, three Union soldiers and three Confederate Soldiers get seperated from their units as twilight engulfs the ravaged battlefield. The men wander alone through the dangerous woods, separate of each other, until they meet by chance on the banks of a quiet creek. The men meet and spend the night around a campfire, not realizing they are enemies until the next morning when the sun rises and a new day of battle begins. Written by

During the farewell scene at the train, the railroad passenger car used as a background is of 20th century design. Passenger cars used in the mid 19th century had metal frames and wooden sides. The car used had obvious steel sides and was probably built around 60 years after the civil war. See more »
It's obvious that in this day and age movie fans are easily impressed by lame attempts at depicting the horrors of war contrasted with slow motion fake sentimentality. Because that's exactly what you have here. No plot. No story. No human interest. I am assuming that the script was written on the back of a napkin as there isn't anything to it. Just depicting tearful goodbyes and battle scenes does not a movie make. Remember when movies were about stories? Remember Shenandoah? Go rent that if you're interested in things like plot, substance, and a deep look into the human condition. Cause you ain't gonna find it here!
