Prairie Rose is the fictional historical drama of a young Southern women's adventure to rescue her husband from a Civil War Union POW camp, Camp Douglas, in Chicago in the fall of 1862. Sarah Rose receives a message at home on her farm in rural Kentucky from her dying husband, Will, through Cath, a nurse and spy from the camp. With Cath's tenacity and brash personality, the generally shy and reserve Sarah sets off with her new companion on a journey across Kentucky and Illinois determined to rescue her newlywed husband from an inevitable death from camp sickness and his battle wounds received at the battle of Shiloh. The difficulty of their journey is complicated by two Pinkerton agents, Agents Winslow and Peterson, hired by the camp commander to hunt down and capture Confederate spies. Written by Jason Louis Kladiva

Some thoughts to share on the film Prairie Rose, A Civil War Journey
12 February 2007 | by richardscimenti2301See all my reviews

I have just finished watching the movie " Prairie Rose, A Civil War Journey " presented by Prairie Star Productions. To say that I enjoyed the movie would be an understatement. My 11 year old daughter watched the movie with me and we were both captivated by the story from start to end. I would like to recommend the movie to all who enjoy a story of love, courage and devotion to a purpose beyond ones own safety and well being.

The story is about a young woman who sets out on a journey across country with a new found friend to rescue her husband held in a prisoner of war camp in Chicago, Ill. The two heroines of the story have to face what seems to be insurmountable odds. I believe you will be captivated by the charm of Sarah and the pluckiness of Cath as myself and my daughter were. I have been a Civil War re-enactor with the 2nd, Kentucky Cavalry Co. D for over four years and as a result I tend to look at movies, especially history movies about the era that I portray with a very critical eye.

I must admit that I was totally impressed with the attention to detail portrayed throughout the entire movie. The wardrobe was meticulous, the furniture well set for the time period. Small things that might go unnoticed, such as the books in the book case, the bindings were all period correct. The lawn on the front yard of Sarah's home was not mown. The dialogue was period correct as well; (That in itself was refreshing). The backgrounds and the scenery was also carefully chosen to portray the proper settings for the time period.

I really recommend this movie to all who enjoy a good old fashioned love and adventure story. My compliments to all the cast and crew that made the movie Prairie Rose an enjoyable family movie that I will enjoy watching many times over.

In closing, I would also like state that I paid my $22.00 for the movie like everyone else. So I am not bound to write a favorable review out of courtesy or obligation.
