A civil war love story that is epic, moving, crazy and loaded with facts that are staggering and shots that are breathtaking!

A movie that is based on a real life woman who fought in some of the worst battles of all time. Lizzie Compton. Not only did she fight – she was wounded multiple times. Compton saw considerable action during the war, serving in seven different regiments, holding the record for the most amount of reenlistments.[3]:62–63 She transferred many times, either due to her sex being revealed or her fear of being detected.

In the 18 months Compton was in the army, she served in the 11th Kentucky Cavalry, 125th Michigan Cavalry, 21st Minnesota Infantry, the 8th, 17th, and 28th Michigan Infantry, the 79th New York Infantry, and the 3rd New York Cavalry. Her first battle was the Battle of Mill Springs on January 19, 1862. Compton fought and was wounded by shrapnel at the Battle of Antietam during the uphill charge. After being wounded at Fredericksburg and being transferred out, she immediately headed west to rejoin the army as part of the 25th Michigan Infantry. While fighting at the Battle of Gettysburg with the 79th New York Infantry, she was wounded and discharged again. She was subsequently shot in the shoulder outside of Green River, Kentucky, at the Battle of Tebbs Bend. While she was being treated by the surgeon, her sex was discovered. Undeterred, she returned to Green River after her recovery to join a regiment that was encamped there. She also fought in the Battle of Fort Donelson, the Battle of Shiloh, and the Battle of Antietam.

Amazing right? The film covers some of the battles but that isn’t just what made up this incredible woman. The film is loosely based on her life’s battles, but also covers her life after the war and how she chose to live. Here is an excerpt:

On February 20, 1864, Compton was arrested under charges of disorderliness in Rochester, New York for trying to enlist in another regiment. When told that it was against the law to dress as a man, she replied that she would never be a lady. She said that she could be a gentleman, but she would rather die than be a lady. When taken to the Chief Magistrate, she told him of her story and was let go

Her last known whereabouts were in the mountains of Tennessee where she made her home living as man until her death.
