"The North and the South" (1985)

Is anyone else a fan of this great miniseries from the "golden age" of that genre? It was about the enduring friendship of Northern industrialist heir George Hazard (James Read) and Southern plantation heir Orry Main (Patrick Swayze). They first meet at Westpoint Academy in the 1840s and obviously their friendship is tested during the Civil War when both find themselves on opposite sides of the battlefield. But what I find more interesting that the central storyline is the side characters that surround these two men like the evil, conniving Ashton Main (Teri Garber), the staunch abolitionist Virgilia Hazard (Kirstie Alley) and the abusive and psychotic Justin LaMonte (David Carradine). The series spanned 12 episodes that originally aired from 1985-86. It is currently ranked as the 7th most watched miniseries of all time and is still a fan favorite till this day.
