I recently watched "Gettysburg" with my 24 year old son, as we are both interested in history, including the American Civil War. The movie left me with several strong impressions, mostly good ones. The subjects of secession, slavery, and state's rights were treated with respect and honor to all sides, not looking through late 20th Century eyes, but through the eyes of the major characters in the file. At least two points of view from the Union side and two from the Confederate side are presented in easy, naturally flowing ways, enabling us to know why a general such as George Pickett would serve the state of Virginia, despite his personal detestation of the institution of slavery. Likewise the abolitionists viewpoints are told from two divergent perspectives. The scene where the Union soldiers and officers encounter a runaway slave remind us that even those who 150 years ago opposed slavery and fought for the Union did not see things from a 1990's perspective. The battle scenes were quite compelling, showing the heroism, futility and horrors of war. Some of the most moving scenes involved the misnamed "Pickett's Charge", both before and during. A reminder that Virginia was the state of Presidents, and the intense loyalty of her men is complemented by a loyalty to the Union and freedom of the Federal troops. The fact that Confederates were fighting for their freedom while denying freedom to slave was not lost, it was put in its proper perspective of the men who lived it. The makers of "Gettysburg" took great pains to be accurate, inviting thousands of Civil War reenactors to portray the soldiers involved in this great battle. The movie was film in and around Gettysburg. I recommend "Gettysburg" as good and educational entertainment. You just might learn something from watching it, and see things a little differently than you did before hand. It's a great lesson in American History, not just military or battlefield history. WARNING - SPOILER ALERT! My only complaint was the portrayal of Robert E. Lee. Here is a man elected to the founders class of the Hall of Fame of Great Americans, a man who was the superintendent of West Point before the war, a man who privately ridiculed the Confederacy in early 1861 letters, a man who denounced secession as "revolution" and a betrayal of the efforts of the founders of the U. S., a man that Winfield Scott, the commanding general of the Union Army, wanted Colonel Lee for senior command (with the rank of Major General), and he's portrayed as aloof and a religious fanatic, with no concept of how to properly fight a battle. Granted, Gettysburg was not Lee's finest hour, but to portray a man whom military historians continue to study as an inept leader was a poor choice in my opinion.

I watched both of these on Memorial Day. Don't be put off by the running time of these films. Their attention to detail and historical autenticity cannot be matched in hollywood. Can't wait for the third one.

Both of these movies are well worth watching by everyone. There are points which are probably not going to please all who watch, and there are some questionable representations, but the viewer's level of interest will certainly make these stories engaging.

Aside from less than stellar make-up jobs on the beards and the southern accent that Chamberlain's brother, Tom, sports, it is an impressive portrayal of The Killer Angels by Michael Shaara. Even more striking, however, are the extra features which make this a worthwhile purchase. Very touching and incredibly moving to see the vast numbers on the actual fields of Gettysburg.

These DVD's are the best piece of work and acting I have seen in such a long time. They brought the entire period of time to life for me, along with such an understanding for both sides and for the men, women and families north and south. In 2010 we could all learn from movies like these, Even now I am looking forward to watching them again John Eire / Ireland
