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.

When Jed leaves the Union lines to go after Jack, in the shots from behind him he is carrying a full-length rifle, and in the shots from in front, he is carrying a much shorter carbine with more of the barrel and ramrod sticking out from the stock. See more »
The film is intelligent, thought-provoking, the music was great. script is well-written and the acting was good. The The actor who played Jed turned in a command performance as did most of the other actors. I am a big fan of Louis Gossett.
We had a meaningful discussion after the film. We talked about how life s so different today than it was 150 years ago for the young boys who were called to fight in the war. I am not normally a big fan of my kids movies but this was very watchable for my husband and myself and the kids thought it was one of the best films they'd seen in the past 2 years.
I would recommend this film to any family who wants to watch a meaningful film and not just rent a DVD as a babysitter for the kids.
