 Offical Press Release:
"Los Angeles, CA – (April 25th, 2013) – As America prepares to commemorate the 150th anniversary of the Civil War this summer, acclaimed filmmaker RON MAXWELL (Gods and Generals and Gettysburg) will release his next Civil War epic Copperhead on June 28, starring Peter Fonda, Billy Campbell (Killing Lincoln), Angus MacFayden (Braveheart), and Augustus Prew (Charlie St. Cloud). Audiences can help determine where Copperhead opens by demanding the movie come to their theater at Top fans can earn prizes for recruiting others to join them in rallying their community to request the movie. Inspired by actual events and based on the extraordinary novel by Harold Frederic, which the great American critic Edmund Wilson praised as a brave and singular book that “differs fundamentally from any other Civil War work,” Copperhead is the story of Abner Beech, a righteous farmer of Upstate New York, who defies his neighbors and his government in the contentious autumn of 1862. Abner despises slavery – but just as passionately opposes the war that is waging in the name of “union” hundreds of miles away because he believes the Constitution of the United States is being trampled. Abner is neither a Yankee nor a Rebel. He is what is known as a Copperhead. Copperhead is a parable of the Civil War and perhaps for our own time. For anyone who reveres and believes in the preservation of the Constitution of the United States, Copperhead is the must see family film this summer!"
