|I'll certainly agree that any film based on historical events contains inaccuracies. However, the website for this film linked to a "timeline" that I considered to support the actual theme of the film, which is to portray this country as it would be had the Civil War been a Southern victory. So as opposed to "Gettysburg" or "Gods and Generals" which were based on actual events, this film appears to take a premise and twist historical "what might have beens" around it. I certainly don't oppose the premise of the film (I actually find it intriguing), I do oppose the supposition that had the South won Gettysburg everything else would have happened as it actually did, with the exception of the abolition of slavery.
