During Grant's presidency, Jonah Hex is a remorseless bounty hunter. In the Civil War, he was a rebel whose honor put him afoul of a Confederate general, Quentin Turnbull, who murdered Jonah's family while Jonah watched. As a result of the ordeal, Jonah's face is disfigured and he can talk with the dead. After staging his own death, Turnbull, with a group of rebel stalwarts, hatches a plan to bring the Union to its knees. Grant wants Hex to stop it. While the nation readies to celebrate Independence Day, Hex and an unlikely ally have little time to stop Turnbull and his weapon of mass destruction. Written by
Composer John Powell was brought on to collaborate with the rock band Mastodon for the film. However, the film had to undergo reshoots and reedits, and Powell had other commitments, so he left and was replaced with Marco Beltrami, whose sensibilities were different and so Mastodon had to collaborate on a completely new score for the film, to their frustration.

The flag flown by Turnbull's ship (with thirteen red/white bars and the blue area containing two concentric circles of stars +4 stars in the corners [35 total]) is the US CAVALRY Guidon, NOT the US Flag of Grant's era (which had 37 stars in 5 rows, 8/7/7/7/8 )
Even though the flag came into existence at the beginning of the civil war, it was reserved solely for use by the Cavalry ... all SHIPS were required to show either the US flag (Union and post war), or the Confederate Navy flag. See more »
War and me took to each other real well. It felt like it had meaning. The feeling of doing what you thought was right. But it wasn't. Folks can believe what they like, but eventually a man's gotta decide if he's gonna do what's right. That choice cost me more than I bargained for.
