‘The Outlaw Josey Wales’ Movie Summary
The Outlaw Josey Wales is the story of an innocent Missouri farmer forced onto a path of revenge and murder during and after the American Civil War. Josey Wales works on his plot of land with his young son and wife far removed from the War Between The States, until a group of renegade North soldiers called the Kansas Redlegs under Captain Terrill suddenly appear to burn, rape and kill Josey’s wife and son and leave Josey for dead.
When Josey recovers, he buries his family and picks up an old revolver out of the charred building. He teaches himself to shoot with his right hand, then his left hand, then both hands, growing faster, deadlier and more accurate with each shot, becoming a bonafide gunfighter.
When a Confederate patrol happens by led by Bloody Bill Anderson, Josey joins them on several bloody raids on Union encampments for the next few years. Once the war is over and Anderson died from his wounds in the war, Josey’s patrol is instructed to surrender by new commander, Colonel Fletcher.read full summary
