A tangential comment - just watched Gettysburg on the history channel this afternoon. What a crock.
1) led viewers to believe the battle was initiated by a couple of companies of csa/union skirmishers rather than by Davis/Archers brigades and Bufords calvary division
2) Ewell is standing on 2 legs
3) no mention of the the other 2 csa divisions involved in the P-P-T charge July 3rd
4) thought for sure there would be mentioned Little Round Top but alas no (thank goodness) but nothing about the other aspects of the 2nd day,
Numerous other mistakes. I do give them credit when they did discuss the Culp Hill engagements on the 2nd and 3rd.
