Confession: I've never seen the civil war thinger.
I thought this was required TV viewing in the mid-80s? (I know that some of you were too young to turn the TV on anything but Sesame Street at that point. No need to rub it in to your elders.)
I was so obsessed with this mini series!! I was resolved to name my first born Orry!!
(until Lonesome Dove came around a few years later, and then I was all "jooo-ly johnson is the coolest name evah!")
Me, too. Years later I went on a weekend trip to Charleston with a friend who had never seen the mini series and I made her visit the plantation that they used as Orry's home. It is a beautiful house. But do you remember that long lane lined with oak trees? That part wasn't filmed there at all. (It was filmed at a plantation in Louisania.) I love the old southern homes.
