Yorker Peaceniks, 1862
The New Beginning posts the above trailer, with reviews and announcments, brought to us by local hero Bill Kauffman and Ronald F. Maxwell of Gettysburg (1993) fame — The Copperhead.
"A Copperhead was a member of a vocal group of Democrats located in the Northern United States of the Union who opposed the American Civil War, wanting an immediate peace settlement with the Confederates," Wikipedia tells us. "Republicans started calling antiwar Democrats 'Copperheads', likening them to the venomous snake. The Peace Democrats accepted the label, reinterpreting the copper 'head' as the likeness of Liberty, which they cut from copper pennies and proudly wore as badges."
Finally, a film that explains what this region is all about. A descendant of Southrons having grown up in Buffalo and now living in Rochester, forgive me if I expect this to be the cinematic event of a lifetime.
