Swearing to the substitution
19 August 2015 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

Here in Buffalo the mayor who became President named Grover Cleveland during the Civil War paid a substitute to serve in the Union Army in his stead. But Grover's substitute did not win a Congressional Medal of Honor while being a substitute.

That's what happened to Richard Basehart who took $500.00 from Paul Fix to serve in the place of Fix's son Richard Anderson. The war is over and Basehart now wants his 40 acres for a farm promised to Civil War veterans, but he needs Fix to sign an affidavit swearing to the substitution.

Anderson is now running for Congress and Fix has big plans for him and that affidavit isn't about to happen. But Basehart isn't going away.

This was an interesting story about a man just looking to collect his due. Basehart plays a most determined man who does pretty well considering he only has one good arm, courtesy of the war.
