Goofs

The Union forces are lugging a Gatling Gun with them on their clandestine mission behind Rebel lines in Spring 1865. However, Gatling Guns were not officially purchased by the US army until 1866. The only ones used during the Civil War were purchased privately. It is not clear what a small group of troops commanded by a Captain operating behind enemy lines would be doing with a Gatling Gun.

The Habit of War
9 January 2015 | by bobliptonSee all my reviews

Lee has surrendered to Grant, but Brad Dexter isn't happy with it. So when a horse trader shows up with Union gold in his pockets, he and his men decide they are still Southern patriots -- at least until they collect all that gold and a few dead Yankees.

This was the period when everyone was going through a war-is-hell reaction to World War Two and Korea and this obviously cheap second feature sticks everyone in Civil War garb -- at least this time it's the Southerners who are the bad guys. It's pretty much a rote production, but it's well handled by the actors. Ted Knight is particularly good in a cynical role.
