Movie released in 1995 that takes place in Kentucky. The movie depicts a small group of Union cavalry arriving at Sarah Anders’ farm, whose husband is off fighting for the Confederate Army of Tennessee. The Union soldiers begin to confiscate goods from the farm until one of the soldiers is injured. The relations between the Union soldiers and the Anders is tense, even though the Captain helps Sarah and shares about his personal experiences living in Ohio. Eventually, the boy runs to get help and his preacher’s slaves kills one of the soldiers before being killed himself. After this, the Union soldiers leave with the Anders’ wagon and mule (their only source of livliehood) and the boy follows and kills the wounded man. The movie shows highlights the truly bitter nature of the Civil War. In the area of the Anders’ there were both Yankees and Confederates and they had very strained tensions (Yankees dug up Sarah’s daughter’s body), which highlights the bitter division in the border states. Also, the movie demonstrates the poverty that Southerners were faced with. With the men off fighting the war many women were given almost sole care of their farms which already reduced their capacity to meet their needs, which was only further exacerbated by the confiscation of goods by both armies.
