This film claims to be based on a real historical incident. Although the US Army's 1932 attack on the "Bonus Marchers" depicted at the beginning of the movie is "based" on an actual event, the rest of the film is pure fiction. There is no documentation whatsoever that the US Cavalry was ever ordered to massacre it's own horses. Unfortunately, some folks who for whatever reasons loathe and fear their government, take this fictionalized incident as another excuse to attack the encroachment of "Big Government" on their personal freedoms. Balderdash!!!
As fiction, this is a great movie. The claim that it is based on true events, however, is totally irresponsible.

This is s story that all American Citizens should see. How inept our Government can be. Cast of characters was good, but story lacked depth and emotion, which is hard to believe considering the true story this movie represents. A decent watch, but not a must.Was this review helpful?
