|I guess this thread is no longer about the original topic but has become about Civil War movies in general. Especially Gods and Generals. My biggest fear on the original topic is that this movie is going to be something that we're going to see a lot of backlash for years to come and history as it was completely forgotten.
On the subject of Gods and Generals, I was more than a little let down. I'd read the book and was hoping for something closer to the book. Yes, I knew there was a large timespan to cover and things would get cut out. But it felt like they glossed over too much and only had a couple of battles they really wanted. I wanted to see a progression, from before the war through the early months of the war and then through Chancellorville and onto the march to Gettysburg. With all the major characters of the book really having a focus. Would have made a longer movie, maybe two movies, but it would have been worth it to me.
