| Australian Perspective & One Scene After 50 years
The Gray Ghost aired in Australia in about 1959, when I was 9 or 10. I can remember the theme song, and little bits from various episodes. The show was my introduction to the American Civil War, including some basic US geography. To my young mind the northern capital, Washington, was farther north. The show taught me that Washington was a southern city, and that there was military activity around it.

I remember allusions to the Mason-Dixon line, and West Virgina--where one of the main characters (Sgt Miles?) came from. I remember an exchange between Mosby and a young lady driving a buck-board outside Washington. She had a picnic basket--perhaps delivering it to her Union boyfriend, which was confiscated by Mosby, and after indicating that she had prepared one of the items herself, Mosby called back with "Miles, save the (whatever) for me". And then he gave a salute and a half- wave." It was romantic and gallant.

Through the mists of my memories, it was a good show that taught me that there are two sides to every war.
