Brothers fighting the Civil War from opposite sides.
I have remembered this TV series for nearly 40 years. It was a heart tugging series, about two brothers fighting the Civil War. One brother was in the Union Army and the other in the Confederate Army.

You just knew one day they would meet face to face on the battlefield, and you just didn't want that to happen. You drew yourself to each of the brothers, in their individual stories of the war.

Good history of times past, warm family feelings torn apart by war.

There is room for a new TV series based upon this story line, today. I hope some producer picks it up and goes with it.
