That scene where he says about whistling Dixie results in the soldiers lying dead soon after.........I'm pretty sure it's based on an old photo of an actual incident from the 1880's. Eastwood did this in The Flags films.

I've watched Josey Wales so much that the lines spoken in my two favorite scenes, I can toss em' out pretty much as spoken. The scenes where the two bounty hunters (Abe and Lige) try to take Josey on and end up as 'buzzard supper' and at the traders cabin where the two trappers attempt to disarm Josey and see what he can do with his Walkers. Love the 'snear' Josey is giving his wanta'be advisories in the scenes. Have even used the line from Fletcher "Don't piss/pee down my/our back and tell us it's rainin' to a few when needed! 'Endeavour to Persevere' to all! Crow Choker

The supporting cast of characters in the saloon were also great actors - the madam, the piano player, etc.

The 'saloon' crew was well acted. In case some of ya didn't know, the 'Rose' character was played by Joyce Jameson, who was 'Skippy', one of the 'Fun Girls' on the Andy Griffith Show, that is if your into Andy and Barney-one of the greatest TV shows of all time.

I don't hear much in the way of complaints from anyone, so I'm guessing the hardware used throughout the
movie was pretty much spot on, Yes?  Thoughts? For myself I had a problem with the Gatling Guns at the start.
IIRC they only held about 30 rounds before changing the stick. Anyone?

One of the best westerns and a great movie all around.   While none of the actors, other than Bottoms are really the right age.   Fletcher was a real person, he rode with Bloody Bill and young Jesse James.  He did end up in Texas after the war, minus an arm.   I believe he opened a mill.   Bloody Bill was only about 24 when he was beheaded by the Yankees in Richmond Missouri (about 6 days after he killed my wife's G.G. grandfather).    I am in that area of the country, and one has to learn to sing Dixie or the Battle Hymn of the Republic with equal enthusiasm!

IIRC the biography I read on Wild Bill Hickok reported that the ACW continued to be fought on an unofficial basis in the Missouri area for sometime after Appomatox. I seem to remember reading something about returning Union and Confederate Vets trying to "settle scores" for quite a while afterwards. Heard anything about that?

I have read an account of the family of my nephews wife, from the Bootheel area; Five adult males entered the ACW as Missouri Militia cavalry until the Federals disbanded them. Then they volunteered for service in the southern cavalry. When the internal civil war heated up they returned as guerrillas. By the end of the war three survived to lay down their arms, but NONE made it home!

Well, I believe Jesse James was shot while riding in to surrender.  As such, he was probably not present at the liberty bank robbery.   I believe a lot of that went on here.

My 2nd great grandfather was conscripted into the Confederate Army in Missouri. He was told to join or be shot. He was captured and sent to the Union prison in Alton, Il. By the time his wife secured his release he had died.

Alton was a rough area during the war.  There was a riot or two there as I recall and as Andersonville and Camp Douglas showed, neither side knew what to do with a prisoner of war.

I sorta got the impression that after the Prisoner Exchange Policy was done away with
POW camps like Douglas and Andersonville simply became "execution by another means". Just sayin...

I hear...not to say that I know that you can get away with Dixie or the Battle Hymn, but down South, do NOT whistle, play or sing, "Marching Through Georgia"! That can get you into all sorts of trouble!  Roll Eyes
