Favorite Civil War Era Movies

As you may know, many people are quite obsessed with the Civil War. Not only are there daily reenactments, books written, memorabilia collected, and stories told, but Hollywood got in on the action too. Over the years it has developed and perpetuated our sensibilities towards the war. While these films range in age, style, and point of view they still speak to our love of adventure and nostalgia for the past today.

My top five Civil War era movies:

1. The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly
2. Glory
3. Gone with the Wind
4. Gettysburg
5. Cold Mountain

I must say that I have not seen Cold Mountain, however many insisted on its inclusion. So let me know what you think! Do you have a favorite Civil War era movie?

  1. Not a movie, but Hell on Wheels, takes place right after the Civil War on AMC. Soo good!
