Set in 1864 just before the end of the Civil War, this is a tough tale of two degenerate Confederate soldier brothers who quit a losing cause and then lay waste to an unspecified countryside as they ride away from war. Excellent Western brands D.B. Jackson as a coming talent in this classic old genre. Winner of the Wrangler and Will Rogers Awards.
