|I have read through the posts on this thread and am amazed at the general negativity directed at God's and Generals. This is a pretty historically accurate film-even though it is in fact based on a novel which presupposes at least some dramatic license. the difficulty with a historically accurate film about 19th century people is it may in fact seem slow and stilted. People in that era DID speak that way and did reference God often. this seems HOKEY to 21st century minds. Surprise. It is somewhat refreshing to me. What's stupider-authentic 19th century thought patterns as displayed in God's and Generals or 21st century obsessions with George Washington's hemp business and Thomas Jefferson's relationship with Sally Hemmings? Just another angle.
