Storyline

At the onset of the Civil War, seven young Texans decide to join General Hood's Texas regiment in Richmond. During their long horseback voyage from Texas to Virginia, the seven young men will witness first-hand the Southern prejudice and snobbery. They also will witness the lynching of runaway black slaves. Filled with dreams of war glory, they will nevertheless push ahead toward their destination. Their trek eastward is eventful and fraught with dangers, as the Texans will occasionally get into trouble with the townsfolk from various towns. Although they do eventually join the Confederate forces, it will happen in Shiloh, Tennessee not in Richmond, Virginia as planned. After becoming soldiers, they realize that war is not what they expected or dreamed about. The army and the war are not at all compatible with the core human values of ordinary Texans. The battle of Shiloh is the epitaph of this story. Written by nufs68

Good Movie
30 May 2006 | by joekmarineSee all my reviews

I haven't seen this movie for years. However, I remember it was a good flick. I think the first time i ever saw it was in a Drive in (yeah, todays Multiplex theaters are nice, but drive ins were great. One night I stayed up till 2 am to watch it when it was on TV. Entertaining, James Caan and Harrison Ford. Nice little plot and a wonderful story about brotherhood and friendship. I wish it were on DVD or video. It is more of a western than a Civil War movie, but still good. It may have been one of Noah Berry's last movies. If you haven;t seen it, figure out when it will be on TV again and watch it. You will be surprised. It has some good, but quick gunfights and some nice action.
