I have a book of Brady photographs purchased by my G-grandfather who was there. It would be what we consider a coffee table book. Since the ACW was the first War to be heavily photographed it could be the first to be marketed in a visual non-text type presentation.

That book, his letters, and Bruce Catton started me on this intrest and I continue to learn and gather new information.

As to movies based on historical fact how about Letters from Iwo Jima? A movie based on facts about a man who knew and respected his enemy and still because of his personal honor and commitment to his homeland fought the very county he respected.  Sounds like men we all know who resigned their commissions and "went South".
