    I was just thinking about this movie while watching Free State of Jones. As different as they are, they share a similar theme. Man deserts Confederate Army only to realize that his real enemy is the established social order back home.

        Cold Mountain deserves credit for putting the Battle of the Crater onscreen but doesn’t get into how badly the Union Army bungled it. They had spent weeks training black troops to lead the charge. But at the last minute Grant and Meade decided to use untrained white troops instead. It wasn’t necessarily racism. It might have been because they didn’t want to get into the headlines as having ordered black troops on a suicide mission. But the whole thing wound up being a disaster. When that Confederate private says “they dug their own graves” it just about sums up the whole thing.
