Do you know what is a homeschool moms dream (well at least this homeschool mom) a history film that is family friendly. Dream meet reality, Copperhead, a Civil War movie that tells the stories of families during the war. The film comes just in time for the 150th anniversary of the Battle of Gettysburg at select theaters across the country on June 28.
From director Ron Maxwell, (Gettysburg, Gods and Generals) Copperhead is unlike any other Civil War movie. Far from the Virginia battlefield, it’s the exciting story of Abner Beech (Billy Campbell), a peace-loving but stubborn dairy farmer in upstate New York. He detests slavery, but opposes the war for the sake of the “union.” Abner is neither a Yankee nor a Rebel. He is a Copperhead. This is an extraordinary story of family and community.
