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.

The music book being used by older Eveline, played by Tippi Hedren, at the opening of the film was an actual music book owned and used by Eveline (McCord) Adams. 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 »

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.
