|There was a pretty good show that didn't last too long in the late 50s or early 60s that dramatized historical events and in one episode they portrayed the Libby Prison escape. All I remember is a Bounty Jumper is roughed up by the Union prisoners but he ends up causing a diversion in the middle of the escape. I know it plays a little loose with the history but I liked that episode and others. It was 30 minutes long and it always covered historical events but for the the life of me I can't remember the title of the show.
Your movie list is pretty good but one I would add is "Pharoh's Army" and "Ride with the Devil." Both cover the brutallity of the war in different Border states (Kentucky and Missouri).
