"Copperhead" Movie Secures U.S. Theatrical Release

Movie about the cost of dissent during the Civil War did well in screenings for veterans

Civil War chronicler Ron Maxwell last month screened his latest movie, Copperhead, over the Veterans Day weekend to a festival audience filled with warriors, many wounded, disabled or on home leave.

He was showing the Billy Campbell, Angus Macfadyen, and Peter Fonda-starring war drama at the GI Film Festival in Arlington Virginia, near to battlefields whose names echo American history.
