Bonnie Blue Flag (Gods and Generals)

Another early CSA flag that was popular in the early days was the 'Bonnie Blue Flag that bears a single star'. Here's a slightly embarassing version of the song from the film Gods and Generals.

  1. Slightly embarrasing? SLIGHTLY?

  2. That's supposed to be the writer of the song Harry McCarthy and his performer wife. The actor is too young. Notable extras in the crowd of officers include Ted Turner, Senator Robert C. Byrd and Senator George Allen..

  4. Much of the film is embarrassing! The "USO" scene at least looks period. One can see why Ron Maxwell hasn't done a film since G & G.
