The "Battle Hymn of the Republic" was a Union fight song. Nobody celebrating their Southern heritage would sing this song.

Missouri was a slave state that never joined the Confederacy. Much, if not most, of the population wanted to secede but the state was isolated and would be unsupported by the Confederacy. The governor and other state leaders wisely kept Missouri in the Union (the Republic) and saved the state from much of devastation experienced by other southern states. Many Confederate sympathizers joined private militias. A well-known example is Quantrill's Raiders. These guerrilla fighters. Other sympathizers joined the Confederate Army, but they had to travel to a Confederate state to do so. See more »

All of the episodes so far have been very interesting to watch but with few episodes left I wanted a little more out of this episode.

It's fun to watch but the story needs to pick up a little more now. It's very character driven and that doesn't work so well with tv but great for a book.

I never read the book but I'm a sucker for details which is the only reason why I'm still watching because so far there hasn't been much action.
