Goofs

Billy Hazard is shown as a member of the 1st U.S. Sharpshooters, a.k.a., Berdan's Sharpshooters, throughout the war. However, Hiram Berdan was extremely strict about forming his regiments and companies by state. As a Pennsylvanian, Billy would have been assigned to Company C, 2nd U.S. Sharpshooters, the only unit in either regiment that accepted Pennsylvanians. See more »

Excellent continuation!
6 November 2000 | by Starbuck-13See all my reviews

This "sequel" is in no way a let down to the first season. In these episodes, the battle is raging and friends become enemies.

Parker Stevenson gets on board and portrays the Billy Hazard character with much more intensity than his predecessor was able to. In the same moment, his film wife Brett (Genie Francis) gets better and better and suddenly develops unexpected power.

The best scenes are those when the old friends suddenly meet on the battlefield - splendid storytelling here!

I have to recommend these two mini-series as the best TV productions of all time - when you love epic stories about friendship, love and tragedy, watch this one!
