This was not your everyday 'War Between the States' movie- I think that I should like to read the book someday. (here) I thought that John Fox Jr. did a good job showing how families and states were divided.
Some of the faces you may know are:
George Kennedy (We know him from LOTS of movies & TV shows...he was often the bad guy.)
Jimmie Rodgers ("The Real McCoys" & songs such as "In the Jailhouse Now", "Waltzing Matilda" and "Kisses Sweeter Than Wine"
Chill Wills was from Seagoville, Texas =)
A few of the quotes I liked were:
Chad: $5! (bidding on a horse worth over a hundred dollars)
Richard: "He (Chad) doesn't know the value of a good horse"
Major: "Maybe he know the value of $5."
Chad: "Why couldn't we be on the same side, Major? I only tried to do what I thought was right...".....
Major: "Chad- listen and always remember this- every man on both sides was in the right who/(if he) did his duty."
Caleb: "Where your treasure is, there your heart be also."
Chad: "What does the bible mean by 'treasure'?"
Caleb: "Oh, I don't know, Chad - some folks might say a loving woman."
Chad to Mellisa: "Caleb said -- a man's treasure is a loving woman...I've found my treasure, and I know my belonging place now."
