: The weekend before filming began, Tom Berenger hosted a getaway, inviting all the actors who would portray his officers and noncoms; he presented each of them with a Civil War sword, engraved with something like "From Gen. Longstreet to Sgt. Whoever, Gettysburg, July 199 (whatever year they filmed it)."
: The hardcover companion book to the film, GETTYSBURG, has detailed paintings of the famous battle, using the actors' likenesses to their corresponding characters.
Hi, Juanita! Thanks for these little tidbits. Very interesting, about Tom Berenger. And I didn't know about the book. I'll be looking for it.
