ECW Weekender: A Civil War Movie List

(Public Domain – Stock photo)

Hey ECW Fans, how is your week going? Mine has been good, eventful, and filled with watching historic happenings in the modern world, but I’m glad it’s Friday and the weekend is ahead.

I think I’m going to need a break this weekend and will probably schedule a “movie day” at some point over the next two days. (That doesn’t mean watching movies for 24 hours, but I might watch two or a series, eat popcorn, and zone out for a while.)

Thinking about this probable stay-at-home weekend plan inspired me to look back through the ECW archives at all the movies that have been featured or reviewed on the blog through the years. And there is quite a movie list!

How many of the films/documentaries on this list have you seen? Any you might be watching soon?

It has been a while since I’ve done a Gettysburg marathon, or I see there is an entire documentary series about the English Civil War available on AmazonPrime if I want to try something really different but with the same keywords.

Who’s got the popcorn? Cheers for the weekend!

  2. I’m still trying to twist my husband’s arm into watching Harriet with me. I loved it, along with many of those listed here.
