Billy Campbell, Angus Macfadyen, and Peter Fonda star in this Civil War drama adapted from Harold Frederic's novel The Copperhead, and directed by Ronald F. Maxwell (Gettysburg, Gods and Generals). Set in the fall of 1862, the story details the hardships endured by an upstate New York farmer branded a "Copperhead" by his government and his neighbors for believing that the war was futile, and advocating that the Northern states negotiate a peace treaty with the South.
