The Horse Soldiers

 This photo was taken in 1958 during the filming of 'The Horse Soldiers,' a movie very loosely based on Grierson's Raid during the Civil War. The film starred John Wayne and William Holden and was directed by John Ford. Portions of it were filmed at what is now Historic Jefferson College in Natchez. In this photo are some of the cadets, along with (L-R, sitting/kneeling) Anna Lee, John Ford, and Constance Towers. Standing (L-R) are William Holden and John Wayne.
