Tonight’s Feature: “Ride with the Devil“
A little-known band of Civil War fighters known as Bushwhackers use guerrilla warfare to destroy Yankee targets. Jake Roedel and Jack Bull Chiles are friends in Missouri when the Civil War starts. Women and Blacks have few rights. When Jack Bull’s dad is killed by Union soldiers, the young men join the Bushwhackers, irregulars loyal to the South. The two friends join the Southern Bushwhackers, led by William Quantrill, as they combat the Northern Jayhawkers. The movie stars Tobey McGuire, Skeet Ulrich, and Jewel (the singer).
