Storyline

On a frigid January evening in 1862, twenty-two year old George Washington escapes the bonds of slavery in Missouri for free soil in Kansas, and joins the first African-American Union regiment to ever see combat in the Civil War. The outcome of the first-ever battle between those vastly outnumbered former slaves and rebel horsemen, known as Bushwhackers, will play pivotal role in setting the stage for Civil Rights in America, and changing the misconceptions of those who thought the black man unequal, and unfit for the task of fighting for his own freedom. This is the first time the story of the First Kansas Volunteer Regiment, and The Battle of Island Mound has been told on film. Written by Anonymous
