|This would most likely be the Blue & the Gray. Filmed in the 1970's it was a miniseries and the scene in Question shows the unfortunate death of Mrs. Judith Carter Henry who was bedridden during the Battle of 1st Manassas/Bull Run. Union Artillery commander James B. Ricketts believeing there were sharpshooter in the room she was in fired several rounds through the room several injured Mrs Henry atleast three times the most grevious of these would either completely remove, or nearly do, her legs (Ricketts was unaware any Civilians were inside). Both her daughter and a slave (only known as "Florence") attempted to get her out. The scene in the movie shows the Room exploding this did not happen as violently. The DVD versions are edited and some scenes are completely left out. http://www.civilwarfineart.com/BeyondBattlefield/JudithHenryNotionsOfSafetyAndSecurity.htm The branding scene was done to show the treatment of cowards. A large C branded on the cheek or back of the hand. I felt that of all Stacy Keech's role was very good I think that they could have made him a tad more like a Pinkerton agent then a Spy. Gregory Peck as Lincoln was spot on with Lincoln's Humor. The Emancipation Proclimation announcement to the Slaves on the penninsula is completely missing.
