| Short Civil War Story
Towards the end of the American Civil War (1861-1865), two Union soldiers and one Confederate trade shots at each other in order to maintain their positions on a riverbank. All bullets miss. As the hot sun is relentless, the three negotiate a one-hour truce. During this time, they develop a mutual respect for one another as they trade hardtack and tobacco. While fishing, a Union soldier discovers a dead comrade in the river. The following shots make a fitting ending. In 2007 the film was added to the National Film Registry.
