This movie is not for someone looking for a big-budget action drama like "The Patriot" which I thought was an excellent movie by the way. It is more of a love story drama which acurately portrays the story of Confederate Soldier Robert Adams as based on the book "Strike The Tent" which was taken from journal entries and history passed down to his grand children. What's interesting about this movie is that it's told from a point of view not seen in movies today. It also stars Julius Adams, the actual grandson of Robert Adams. Like most biographical movies, if you've read the book much is lost or left to the imagination with the movie. If you are looking for a civil war story told from a uniquely refreshing and unbiased point of view I recommend this movie.

The last confererate and tale of love and survival.
For all those civil war buffs out there you may want to check out the last confederate. If you like Gettysburg, Gods and Generals, and North and South this is a good companion film. It is very well done for the budget and is pretty accurate description of the civil war in the south's eyes. All though a good films are enbelished to make the story more interesting, this one trys to keep it as accurate as possible.
I bought the film because I am a civil war buff, Yet I enjoyed this film because of the love story, between Robert Adams and his northern belle. Even being pro union I still felt a connection to Robert Adams and hoped for a good outcome for him. I won't ruin the ending for you. I"ll just say check this one out you won't regret it.

the last confederate purchase
i really loe this movie it is a true story of this family who struggled and lived during the civil war and had two children whose descendants live today and dedicated this movie to thier great grandparents, reason i bought it is because i have become involved in civil war myself, and joined a unit with the infantry. and researching the ancestry, which i am sure some people from my family side have joined or volunteered willingly. during the civil war my great grandfather was born in 1861, and his parents lived through it i have it in my blood that comes from there i strogly know this. this movie helps me to know more and what happened during that tiem and what they dealt with not even knowing they were going to fight or die in the war at that time. the seller who sold this to me is prompt and very very good i will buy from them again soon very honest and excellent price
Excellent - must see
Movie is so true to life for Civil War Era. Just an excellent movie, everyone who is into Civil War should see this movie. True story of the Adams Family, relatives wrote and directed the movie and some protrayed parts. Very touching, music is beautiful. Truly a must see.
Great movie and great experience
Trying to collect civil war movies, I had never seen this one before.. I love it.. I loved the fact that this is based on true events and stories pasted down from generation to generation...
