: As for Gettysburg ... the film basically portrays three of the major events of the 3-day engagement, one representative of each day.
: Welcome back Marcia, pretty scary, huh? What about your Web Site files?
Hi, Rich! Scary doesn't BEGIN to cover it. I was in a blind panic for 3 days over this thing!
As for Gettysburg, I didn't mean that they should have tried to cover more than they did. There's no way one movie could cover everything that happened at Gettysburg. It was just that if Mark hadn't been there to tell me differently, I would not have known other battles were going on at the same time. (I'm really woefully ignorant!) I just wish they had indicated somewhere during the movie (or at the beginning or end) that they were concentrating on certain aspects of the battle, so that other uninformed folks like me wouldn't think those particular charges, etc, were the only ones that occurred. I really did think the movie was well-done, though, and I give it a resounding thumbs up!
