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.
Based on a true story: This is a journey through the psyche of a Southern captain in the waning days of the American Civil War.

Filled with passion, blood and tragedy, "The Last Confederate: The Story of Robert Adams" is the tumultuous true story of a man divided by love for country and for Eveline McCord, his beloved girl from the north.

The watch carried by Julian Adams, playing Captain Robert Adams, in the film was the actual watch that Captain Adams owned and carried during the War. The watch was made in England in 1801. It was given to Captain Adams by his father Robert Adams I, who was given the watch by his father Joel Adams. It has been in the possession of the family ever since. See more »

I thought it was a well scripted, well shot, well acted movie. This movie is an independent and low budget movie, but you won't notice. It takes place during the Civil War, but it's more than just that. It's the story of a guy fighting for what he believes in and who he loves. The story starts out before the Civil War and progresses through out the war, to the end of the war when he comes home. It is more than just a story of the Civil War but what happened to people during the war. This story is taken from the letters and diaries of the people portrayed in the movie. I thoroughly enjoyed the movie. This movie was a labor of love for the producers and the whole crew and it shows through on the film.
