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. In an emotionally charged performance, Julian Adams portrays his great-great grandfather Robert Adams, a strong willed southern Captain, who used his guns and his heart of fire to rally his men to fight for their lands. 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. Produced and written by the descendents of Robert and Eveline, this is an explosive, richly detailed saga of fierce combat, honor and the will to risk all that's precious for love or country.

Eveline's hair should not have been down in a short braid with a colored hair-band at the end. Women of that time typically had their hair twisted up at the nape of their neck and, also, were very conscious that the piece (snood or similar) that is holding up their hair is of the same color as their hair.

In the movie these are the details that were given. Robert Adams was born in 1832. Eveline McCord two years after him in July 1834. On the grave stones give this information also. But Nelson's grave stone reads Nov. 1834. Wasn't Nelson and Eveline siblings?? How and they both have been born in the same year but the most puzzling part is one was in July and the second in November. That just isn't right, is it? Also I have searched Google, Wikipedia and ask.com for Robert Adams None of the information presented were not dated in the 1800's. Can anyone help me with this information? I very much enjoyed the movie. But the details are very important to me. I hope someone can find the time to help me with this information I search for. Contact sppmybabies@AOL.com Thank you Gail
