The Good the Bad and the Ugly - Civil War battle

If you were to ask my son what his favourite Civil War movie is (he's about 20) he'd say this one from Sergio Leone. I'm not so keen on Spaghetti Westerns though I remember seeing the trailer as a kid and being pretty knocked out by it but on the whole there's something that offends my traditionalist view of the West in these films and I have a hard job following them and keeping with the plot. I do like the Morricone soundtracks though. Shame someone like Leone hadn't covered the Mexican Intervention by the French - I think the geography and style is better suited to that conflict than the Civil War.
