I'd forgotten about "Major Dundee"..... I always liked that movie since seeing it at a drive-in as a kid in the "60's.Originally posted by Janos
How 'bout some great war movie quotes?
"You ask me to place my trust in the Poles? Put your trust in your sword and the sword in the Poles!" '-- Taras Bulba
"I brought you into the world. It is on me to take you out." -- ditto
"I am not your pappy, you redneck peckerwood." -- MAJ Dundee
"Me. I am significant here." -- A Bridge Too Far
"Freedom!" -- Braveheart
It touches on two often overlooked parts of history. The use of repatriated "galvanized rebels" into the Union army to fight Indians on the frontier and the French occupation of Mexico under Maximillion.
I don't know how factual it is about the Union forces following the Apaches into Mexico and encountering the French, but it is a pretty cool flick. I especially like the "baby howitzer" for the horse artillery.
