|I see all the faults that you place on the film. However it is unfair to compare Gettysburg and GaG. Gettysburg the movie takes place over four days while GaG occurs from 1861-1863. I feel that Antietam would be a good addition but know that there is no way they could have added every battle into the movie. And btw who ever said that GaG was supposed to be about Jackson? Its name even says Generals. Now to what i like. I found the Fredricksburg scene very good. It is like the Picket's Charge scene in Gettysburg with how it shows the incredible courage and unwaviering devotion to country. It takes alot of guts to walk across and open field towards an enemy who is dug in behind cover. While it was long I found it good. I know that many people who don't care about history don't like this film and I can see why. What i would like to see done is a creation of the Hitorical fiction work by Newt Gingrich that attempts to answer the "what-if" Lee had listened to Longstreet and went south of the Federal lines. It offers good movies full of action and speculation. Plus these books don't take place over too long a period and this would allow for shorter and more active movies.
