It is a movie about the VMI cadets at New Market. It is a low budget picture with some respectable actors. I thought it was a good movie but they didn't have the nerve to have any of the cadets be pro-slavery or even racists. With the Social Justice Movement in full swing a few critics blasted it. To me...it's just a movie! I love movies for their entertainment value and they don't have to be WOKE. "Cross of Iron" was a good movie about Germans on the Eastern Front. It isn't WOKE either. It came out in the sixties when the Soviet Union was our enemy.
