Synopses & Reviews

Synopsis:

As the Civil War unfolds, one family prepares to embark on a harrowing journey. Based on a true story, Thomas Tiernan weaves together the life of Mrs. Lydia Bixby and her sons, chronicling the lives of a family under the siege of war. With no end in sight to the staggering losses suffered on the battlefield, her sons face their own mortality while Mrs. Bixby is forced to struggle with the emotional anguish of war within her own household. As she contemplates the horrors of losing her sons, her creativity is breathed into life, creating the classic poem, THE LAST OF SIX. This absorbing tale, based on the commonly believed genesis of the actual poem, will draw you into the tragic world of a family destined for oblivion.
