Sniff, sniff; where is Prescott in all of this????
First the disclaimers:
1) I fully realize that this is NOT a documentary, but rather a romantic adventure drama based on real events.
2) I am a fairly intelligent person and not a "troll".
3) I am prejudiced, as I live in Prescott Valley, adjacent to the city of Prescott, Arizona.
There, got the disclaimers out of the way. If the producers make a two-hour movie (unusual for 1940s) AND they go to great lengths to get the sets, costumes and weapons correct for the period, not to mention the script then you'd think they'd mention Prescott at least once in the debate over whether Tucson sways north or south.
The reason: President Lincoln sent Federal troops to Prescott to protect the newly-discovered gold fields FOR THE NORTH, as Tucson was already in the Confederate Camp. For that reason, Prescott was made the Territorial Capitol.
There, all done ranting. Aside from this nitpicking, a thoroughly enjoyable movie that I'm happy to add to my video library!
