Uncle Sam: A Horse's Tale

  • Uncle Sam, a cavalry horse, travels to Louisiana in the months before America enters WWII. Sam and his best friend, Sergeant Ed, take part in Louisiana Army Maneuvers, a mock battle featuring infantry, tanks, jeeps, and traditional cavalry units. As the battle's end and Pearl Harbor nears, Uncle Sam and his friends escape into the piney woods of western Louisiana where they become forerunners of the famous Fort Polk wild horse herd.
