Based on a true story of the American Civil War, culminating at the Battle of New Market, May 1864. A group of teenage cadets sheltered from war at the Virginia Military Institute must confront the horrors of an adult world when they are called upon to defend the Shenandoah Valley. Leaving behind their youth, these cadets must decide what they are fighting for. Written by

As the cadets are on the attack around the barns/sheds,you can see two crew members just disappearing round the side of one of the barns/sheds.Just before the cadet picks up the flag.One is in blue and the other is in a biscuit coloured coat. See more »
I'll give it a 3 because the Civil War re-enactors did a great job on the battle scenes. Otherwise this is a poorly acted movie. All the actors seemed stiff, just reading their parts. Many of the scenes seem contrived and unrealistic. I doubt if the cadets had time to party the night before the big battle.
The costuming was done very well as well as the battle scenes. In fact these 2 things saved the movie from getting a 2 star rating as far as I'm concerned.
I watched it through the end, but should have cut my losses after the first 20 minutes.
