Storyline

Major Clint Drango of the U.S. Army and his aide, Capt. Marc Banning, ride into a burned-out Georgia town shortly after the end of the Civil War with orders to set up a military governorship. The townspeople are bitter over the earlier destruction of their crops, homes, schools and church by Sherman and Union troops but they do not know that Drango was a participant in that destruction. Renegade former Confederates under Clay Allen plan to undermine Drango's benign administration in hopes of restarting the war. The renegades commit a series of crimes and killings and Drango's honesty and character eventually win him some converts in the town. Written by Jim Beaver <jumblejim@prodigy.net>

Goofs

Major Drango has a pistol that he gives to his captain. The gun has ivory handles and a short barrel. Guns if this vintage had walnut handles and 8 inch barrels. The pistol appears historically incorrect. See more »

historical gem
25 January 2003 | by mrskywalkerSee all my reviews

This film reveals a lot about the reconstruction era in the U. S. after the Civil War. It is amazing to see this era explained without an agenda or politically correct spins that Americans are fed now. The post Civil War era in the South shows the hardships the people faced and how one honorable Yankee military governor attempts to handle it.
