Synopsis

Captivating Western saga starring James Stewart as a Virginia farmer reluctantly dragged into the American Civil War when his boy is taken prisoner in the North. There's plenty of incident and tragedy but melodrama is kept at bay by Stewart and the likes of Doug McClure, Katharine Ross, George Kennedy and Patrick 'son of John' Wayne as the stoical family and military personnel.
