This movie was shared a couple of years ago at our book discussion group at the Drum Barracks Civil War Museum.  In December each year we have what we call Movie night.  Bring a movie that has some Civil War connection and share a clip and review of it.  The first year I had a list of movies to get.  One year one of the movies was Pharaoh's Army.  I really thought it was a great movie.  It is based on a true inccident.  Chris Cooper was excellent as was  Patricia Clarkson as the woman. 

I also have found on bagin tables good movies.  Wicked Spring was the best of my finds and was the first movie I shared at movie night .  Filmed in part at the Frontier Farm in Staunton Virginia and at Fort Lee it is the story of soldier north and south that come together one night in the middle of the night , they don't reconize uniforms .  Not enough to tell at night.  The next morning they find themselves in between the two armies fighting in the Wilderness.
