Week 6 Resource

February 16th, 2011

This is a clip from an episode of The Gray Ghost that aired in the late 1950s. It tells the adventures (true or false) of Confederate John Mosby and his men. It is actually really funny to watch because of the acting, but it is also interesting because it depicts Mosby in a good light, being clever and talented. It also makes you want to root for him to win because it makes him seem like the good guy. This episode also represents the strong loyalties Southerners felt for the South, even in the mid 20th century.
