Goofs

At the battle of Petersburg, when the Union army advances on the Confederate lines, Billy crosses on planks and climbs to the top of the trench. At the top, he grabs the Confederate flag (the Stainless Banner)and waves it around. The scene cuts to a distance, and now he's waving the "Stars and Bars". The scene cuts back and he's waving the "Stainless Banner" again. See more »

Another wonderful plot from John Jakes!
21 August 2001 | by See all my reviews

Well, what can I say about the sequal to the best Civil War movie ever made. The same cast was there including a few new ones, and I happy to see old Bent get his in the end, and Ashton too. Although Bent did come back in the third movie. What was that about? This movie depicted a very accurate account of the events during the Civil War and shortly afterward. If you have seen the first movie, and then watch the second. It is not disappointing. Patrick Swayze and James Ried are at their absolute best. The cast and crew pulled off a second hit!
