210Re: Fwd: Civil War Film Shoot in Monroe
- Feb 19, 2009Hello to everyone here. I have just joined the group and was going
through the messages and came across the filming of Norman Hall in the
Civil War. Could someone tell me when this film be out. I am glad to
hear they are doing a film on him because I believe he was one of the
best brigade commanders in the war.
