I don't mean to be bothering you.

My father's a printer. He taught me.

My mother always read to me

while I was growing up.

My mother will have to go to

the priest to read what we send her.

I don't think she's ever got

a letter in her life.

Everybody up. Let's get a move on.

Get on your feet.

Officers. Over here, please.

This train's not for you.

On your feet now. I said, get up.

Let's go. Let's go,

Massachusetts, stay together.

- Sgt. McSpadden. Cpl. Day.

- Capt. Russell.

- How are you, sergeant? How's the...?

- Never better, sir.

You've always been good soldiers.

Always did what had to be done.

Bob's wife's address is on this. You

may have an easier time getting it sent.

- You take care of the boys, now.

- Yes, sir. Don't you worry, captain.

Just hate having to leave them.

We've been through a lot together.

You're in charge. You do what you can.

Something happens, you're in command.

- I'll do my best, sir.

- I know you will. God bless you, boys.

- Get in the car, now.

- Come on, guys.

I'll mail your letter.

We'll see you in Boston, captain.

You can bet it'll be a sunshiny day.

- Come on. Push them in back. Let's go.

- All right.

- Get going. Come on.

- We'll see you.

No, no, I don't think so.

Come on, now.


Let's get a blanket in here.

Left, company. March.

Forward march.

Come on. Pick up your feet.

- Come on, now, hurry it up.

- Whoa. Hold on there, Yankees.

- Caught us a couple of runaways.

- Sweet Jesus.

Come on, now.

Let's go, you Yankees.

Come on, now.

Now, halt.

Teach you to run.

All right. Come on.

Open the gate.

And what do you call this

little piece of heaven?

This? This is Andersonville.

- All right, now. Let's get a move on.

- Come on.

- Move, move.

- Get in there.

Let's go. Move it.
