I always get enthusiastic about movies that feature Civil War history. Oftentimes, the films fall short of my expectations, but I think there might be real reason to hope for this new movie coming in late Autumn 2019.
Called Harriet, this film has been described as a “biopic”—a dramatization of the life a historical figure. Harriet Tubman’s story will be portrayed on the big screen. At last! While Hollywood may take its liberties as usual with the details, we are surely going to see a movie about a strong, courageous woman who defied her society to find her own freedom and lead others to liberty through the Underground Railroad and the Civil War.
