Get ready for victory! You’re on the verge of a comprehensive and entertaining quiz about the 50 best Civil War movies ever made.
The American Civil War took place between April 12, 1861, and May 9, 1865. The four years, three weeks and six days for which it lasted proved to be a time of great upheaval, soul-searching, and eventual growth for the country. Over the decades, filmmakers have found wonderfully strong, riveting, and uplifting stories to retell about the encounter.
Some were, naturally, more historically accurate than others. Remember that film named for the famous Pennsylvania battle which turned the tide of the entire war? It focused on recreating the action in great detail. You know the one we’re talking about!
Others were more imaginative, adding intriguing twists to familiar tales, like a legendary president chasing the undead. It’s very symbolic, well-made, and keeps the suspense tuned way up all the way through. Surely, you’ve seen it, and it is definitely in our line-up.
You don’t have to spend your weekends doing Civil War reenactments to ace this quiz, although it definitely wouldn’t hurt! So, grab that bag of popcorn (or a bayonet, if you must) and wade right into the thick of things with this Civil War quiz.
