North and South: The Complete Collection
Thank you! As before, the plantation-owning Mains of South Carolina do the bulk of the suffering here. Orry Main will at last marry star-crossed love Madeline--but after her octoroon secret is revealed thanks to doomed monster-villain Elkanah Bent , Orry is ostracized by his Confederacy colleagues in Richmond. Orry's young cousin Charles excels as a scout he recoils from officer-dom , falls in love with feisty farm-widow Augusta, but is hopelessly torn between Love and War--with heartbreak Gus' death in secret childbirth ahead. As for Orry's evil sister Ashton, she's filthier than ever--cuckolding her husband, profiting from profiteering, conspiring to assassinate Jefferson Davis.
Arriving at 9 p. It is , and the Southern plantation-owning Mains and Northern industrialist Hazards are now on opposite sides in the War between the States, caught up in the gory action, enduring chaos and destruction with a stiff upper lip. From Bull Run to Lynchburg, though, from Antietam to Petersburg and from Gettysburg to Appomattox, they unleash their biggest firepower between the sheets. The pivotal characters remain former West Point classmates, Mexican War comrades and business partners Orry Main Patrick Swayze and George Hazard James Read , who are now following their separate destinies, accompanied by separate swells of symphonic music. Coincidentally, they are almost opposite numbers--Orry as a general and adviser to Confederacy President Jefferson Davis and George as a colonel and adviser to President Abraham Lincoln. Well, not exactly.
