There are few moments in American history that so unforgettably changed the course of the nation, and the Civil War, over a hundred years on, continues to fascinate filmmakers, authors, scholars, historians and more. For director Ron Maxwell, he's dedicated a good part of his career to the subject, with two films -- "Gettysburg" and "Gods & Generals" -- already under his belt. And now, he's completing his American Civil War anthology with "Copperhead," and we've got a new look at the movie.

There are few moments in American history that so unforgettably changed the course of the nation, and the Civil War, over a hundred years on, continues to fascinate filmmakers, authors, scholars, historians and more. For director Ron Maxwell, he's dedicated a good part of his career to the subject, with two films -- "Gettysburg" and "Gods & Generals" -- already under his belt. And now, he's delivering his third film in his American Civil War anthology with "Copperhead," and we've got a new look at the movie.

Based on the novel by Harold Frederic, the film stars Billy Campbell, Angus Macfadyen, Augustus Prew, and Peter Fonda and tells the story of Abner Beech, a dairy farmer and anti-Abolitionist in Upstate New York, who earns the titular sobriquet for his views on the war, which finds him divided from his neighbors. In this exclusive clip, we see Abner ponder the cost of entering a bloody war that has already fractured so many families.

"Copperhead" is currently available on VOD and will expand into theaters starting on July 19th. Watch below.
