Personal story inside the Civil War
26 April 2016 | by vivian_williamsonSee all my reviews

I found viewing this movie an enjoyable experience and liked the personal story aspect of one man's trials during the Civil War unfolded. It is not a typical battlefield portrayed in the usual war movie. Instead, this film focused on how people were challenged and chose to deal with issues during this difficult period of time in our country's history. While all the actors did a credible portrayal of characters, Tank Jones provided an amazing and emotional portrayal of the slave. The costuming was very authentic for the period and the cinematography was wonderful. Kudos to the writer, director, producers and crew for portraying Joseph Hoover's diary in such an authentic way.
