Grew up in nothern Louisiana just a short distance from Natchitoches, La (just north of there are the red river battle sites) where the movie was filmed.  My favorite 2 scenes were the union cavalry regiments riding on the levee and the other hiding from the passing calvary regiments across the river.  Another cult southern movie filmed there about 30 years later was Steel Magnolias.  Great place to visit for one interested in southern plantations along the Cane River (actually once part of the Red River and not a river).  Here in the east , pbs is having a 2 hour John Ford anthology program tonight.
