The true love story of the conflict between Capt. Robert Adams' dedication to the south and his love for Eveline McCord, his beloved from the north. Produced, written and directed by the descendants of Robert and Eveline, this American Civil War tale is an explosive, richly detailed saga of fierce combat, honor and the will to risk all that's precious for love or country.

34-years after his death, Airman William H. Pitsenbarger, Jr. ("Pits") is awarded the nations highest military honor for his actions on the battlefield. One of the great untold stories of the Vietnam era.
as minstrel Harry Macarthy, singing "The Bonnie Blue Flag" for the Northern Virginia high command in the USO-type performance. Macarthy wrote these verses to the tune of "The Irish Jaunting Car," a vaudeville song from his native country. The Bonnie Blue Flag was popular enough to become one of the unofficial Confederate national anthems, alongside "Dixie" and "God Save the South". See more »
The tender of the locomotive bears the initials V & T R R. These are the initials of the Virginia and Truckee Railroad. Confusingly, the railroad is situated in Nevada, not in Virginia. See more »
A human life, I think, should be well rooted in some spot of a native land, where it may get the love of tender kinship for the face of the earth, for the labors men go forth to, for the sounds and accents that haunt it, for whatever will give that early home a familiar unmistakable difference amidst the future widening of knowledge. The best introduction to astronomy is to think of the nightly heavens as a little lot of stars belonging to one's own homestead. - George Eliot

It amazes me that the people who made this film could not see what a mind-numbing, boring turkey they had produced. Actors carefully reciting lines obviously drawn from letters, and thus speaking like nobody ever speaks; long, boring scenes where nothing happens (we do not go to films to see T.J. Jackson in bed with his wife or Joshua Chamberlain lecturing his brother on 19th-Century politically-correct terminology for blacks); endless numbers of soldiers being hit by bullets and falling down...). There is no sense of strategy or how the war is going, no feeling for the ebb and flow of battle, nothing but endless vignettes. Jackson would be better represented by giving some idea of why he is considered a great soldier (the Valley campaign) rather than being shown as primarily a sentimental, but simultaneously bloodthirsty, religious crackpot ("hoist the black flag... kill everyone..."). The film also tried to do too much: Gettysburg also has its very boring parts, but is unified by concentrating on the major stages of one battle. And, IMHO, the General Lee in Gettysburg is a much more real character than the one in G&G (who, however, gets little screen time). This movie deserved to fail, and, though I am in some ways sorry that "Last Full Measure" will therefore not be produced, I am apprehensive what these filmmakers would have done with it. It may be just as well.
