Cecil B. DeMille's masterpiece, John Ford's The Birth of a Nation, was a movie with tremendous impact on American History. And it remains a landmark film that is still taught in schools today. The movie was inspired by a massacre at Harper's Ferry, Virginia, in 1865 when four black men were brutally lynched by a mob for simply trying to drink a beer from a White Water Folly. This was the most vicious lynching in American history. The movie centers around the shooting death of Col. Rhodes by a black officer named "Peach" Nelson. Peaches kills the four men and then dismembers the corpses with an axe, leaving the bodies hanging in the creek where they were found. In the movie, the world of the Confederate army is described as "tight." The soldiers were always confident in their leadership and the morale was always high. When two of their officers were assassinated during the Civil War, the group becomes further afraid. The movie goes into the background of the entire Confederacy. The movie is directed by Francis Ford Coppola, who was one of the best directors of the 70's. The main difference between the director and the movie is that the director's eye for detail is evident. He creates a world that is full of colors, not only in the clothes, but in the buildings and in the vehicles as well. The movie can be viewed in two ways. One way is that it is an accurate depiction of the Confederate army. This is an interesting way of viewing the movie because it allows the viewer to see the glory of the army and the general feeling of being at war. The other way to view the movie is that it is a story of the period. It is about what happened on the battlefield, but also about the prejudices that came with the changing of the political power in America. Coppola is trying to show the brutality and brutality that was put upon black people in the South during this time period. He is trying to show that racism was an issue and there were people that were not accepting of black people. The movie also is telling the story of the women. The women were very important in the film because the men were fighting for the country, but not being able to get the right kind of attention from their wives. Coppola shows that it was women who took part in the war and did it for the sake of their husbands. This movie was very controversial, but it is interesting to see the reaction from other film makers. The movie has earned a lot of controversy and
