I can't read this string of posts without defending my favorite movie, Gods and Generals. I have had a lifelong devotion to history and great respect for the honor shown by men on both sides of Lincoln's revolution. At the same time, I realize we are discussing a movie based on a book, but it is probably the most accurate portrayal of an important side of men that is generally scourned and hidden by modern story tellers.
The usual criticisms of G&G are- "too draggy"..."too many speeches"..."lard a-- reenactors"...but Gettysburg is just as draggy (if not more so), has about the same number of speeches, and has the same "lard a--" reenactors.
