Robert Enrico directed and wrote the screenplay for this American Civil War trilogy taken from the stories of Ambrose Bierce. In "Chickamauga," a young deaf-mute witnesses the bloody battle and carnage as a surrealistic dream. "The Mockingbird" and "Incident At Owl Creek" are also done in a style heavy on symbolic realism and vivid imagery. Frenchman Enrico has done his homework to accurately and believably portray the settings and stories of the Civil War.
