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.

Much of the film was shot on the land, and at the home (Wavering Place), of Dr. Julian Adams, the brother of Weston Adams. During the 19th century the land and home belonged to James P. Adams, who was the brother of Robert Adams II (the protagonist of the film). See more »
In the scene where Robert first sees Eveline the bodice of the dress has very thin, synthetic looking material (authentic materials are MUCH heavier) and it appears to be the middle of the day (off-shoulder gowns were not worn until evening/night by anyone of marrying age). See more »

Many of the posters who have made negative comments on this fantastic film are apparently some who were rightfully fired from the production. How unfortunate for them, because this was quite a movie.
I also understand that the budget of this film was around one million US dollars. That seems impossible, because of the lush and broad scope of the film, but those who told me that were sources within South Carolina government who had knowledge (who also told me of the employees, who were rightfully fired from the production, who've spoken ill of the film simply as an attempt at revenge). Apparently those fired were involved as well in the destruction a television show in the Charleston area.
A fantastic production in every way. A wonderful story and a touching tale of love's strength.
