One of the great John Fort – John Wayne movies in the 1950’s is The Horse Soldiers.  It also stars William Holden and Constance Towers.

 It’s loosely based on the Battle of Newton’s Station at the time of the Civil War.

 There is some rare footage available that took place during the filming.  To view it go to: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9D15Hs_AXc8&feature=player_embedded
