In the waning days of the American Civil War, a wounded soldier embarks on a perilous journey back home to Cold Mountain, North Carolina to reunite with his sweetheart.
Francis Kemp was first considered for the old mountain woman, but turned it down.
Dear Mr. Inman, I began by counting the days, then the months. I don't count on anything anymore except the hope that you will return, and the silent fear that in the years since we saw each other, this war, this awful war, will have changed us both...
At the end of the scene outside of the church when the men are celebrating "we have a war," Teague tells the crowd that he is the Captain of the Home Guard for Avery County. However, Avery County was not established until 1911 - it was the last county created by North Carolina. The correct location for Cold Mountain is Haywood County, which did exist in 1861.
