Did You Know?

At 28:19 on the DVD feature, Colonel McKellog says "You know, a great man once said that God put the firewood there but every man must gather it and light it for himself", to which Lieutenant Hogenbeck responds "Abraham Lincoln", and Willie Grier then says "Lone Ranger". The quote is actually from the "Ranger creed" in the Lone Ranger series.See more »
Revealing mistakes: At 12:49 on the DVD as Willie Grier is walking down the road in the moonlight, he seems to be walking on a path in the middle of the road. At 10:23 in the 3rd (director and cinematographer) commentary Aaron Schneider mentions that Bill Eaton, who owned the farm where location shots were made, assisted by spreading quarry gravel (granite dust at 08:44 in the documentary "Behind the Scenes") over the yellow lines to conceal them and avoid an anachronism.See more »

This little film brought tears to my eyes, 14 February 2010
Author: mindcat from South Carolina

Although this was a film of only less than forty minutes, it is one of best directed and acted stories I have ever seen. It accomplishes in less than 45 minutes what most films cannot in more than 90.

It is the story of two brothers, one 18 and the other 10. They come from a poor farm family in Mississippi. Both are caught up in war and the conflict of duty verses love of family.

It brought tears to my eyes especially because the entire film is so well acted and directed, plus it tells the story of so many wars where one serves and the other left behind.

I can fully recommend this film as beyond superb !
