    Not a good history lesson

    I have been a Civil War historian and civil war reenactor for eleven years and having both read North and South and have seen its film, I disagree strongly that it is as factual and good of a film as Gone with the Wind, Gods and Generals, or even Gettysburg. The film does point out, although not as an intent, the reason why the war started. Virgilia Hazard played by Kirstie Alley through out the film gave no class or decency to her fellow Americans. Hypocritically she bashed the institution of slavery while her own father ran a factory that all but enslaved its workers. The uncompromising and ignorance of her character shows how the North wanted and demanded its own terms and of war. The film directs too much attention to the stereo type that the South fought for slavery and that the North was an army of liberators. All facts of history proves this film to be fiction. It is a politically correct bashing of the South and a slight against her people. If you enjoy a good fiction, this film is for you. However, it may not be. The acting and quality is pretty cheesy too. Most civil war movies have not eleviated an inch in comparison to Gone with the Wind. If you do not mind a long movie with Patrick Swayze then check this out. But don't expect it to teach you an accurate history lesson.
