|That is not an excuse. The movie is based on the book as Gettysburg is based on The Killer Angels. Gettysburg better followed The Killer Angels. But Gods and Generals did not do as well to follow Gods and Generals. There is much going on on both sides in the book that gets left out of the movie. We loose so much of that with the movie's focus.
It should not matter which side is winning. If you're basing your movie on an exsisting book, then try to follow the book more. The book isn't about the South winning at that point in the war. It's about how the main characters, both North and South, feel about what is taking place. About their frustrations, about what they do to aid their side's cause. Who they are and how the war is shaping them.
