OK, now I'm going to have to rewatch the WHOLE thing just to see where some of these are. :D

Actually my wife and I had a good chuckle over some of the other scenes.  Most impressive was the large mountain behind Fredericksburg in the scenes where the civilians and CS troops are evacuating.  I lived there for most of a decade, and didn't remember seeing anything like that.  I mentioned to her it made it look like WEST Virginia.  Only later did I find out the actually shot many of the F'burg scenes in Harper's Ferry (WVa).

Gettysburg, though, wasn't without its own recycling incidents.  I KNOW I saw the same Confederate soldier shot about THREE times, flailing around the same way each time, during the assault on Little Round Top.

Interesting tidbit about Russel Crowe though.

I also didn't realize Jackson only grew his beard during the war.  The only pictures I've usually seen of him were all either much younger or during his confederate service.
