The Raid is a 1954 film set during the American Civil War. It stars Van Heflin, Anne Bancroft, Richard Boone and Lee Marvin.
A group of escaped Confederate prisoners based in Canada plan a raid across the border into Vermont, to rob its banks and burn buildings. It is loosely based on a true incident, the St. Albans Raid. However the film made a significant change, moving the action from 1864 to 1865, turning the raid into an act of revenge for Sherman's burning of Atlanta.
