Two Flags West (DVD)

originally released in 1950
black and white; 92 minutes

On December 8, 1863, President Abraham Lincoln issued a Special Proclamation whereby Confederate Prisoners of War might gain their freedom, provided they would join the Union Army to defend the frontier West against the Indians. This little-known footnote to American history provides the background for this dramatic cavalry film. With every able-bodied Union soldier needed for the war, the frontier was being protected almost entirely by men unable to fight on the battle field: the young, the old, the wounded and crippled. Lincoln's solution offered Confederate prisoners of war a pardon and a legal escape from the appalling conditions of the prison camps, in return for an oath of loyalty and service to the country without being forced to fight their fellow Americans.
