Gettysburg

Bob responds in the comments regarding the movie Gettysburg, which prompted me to explain me relationship to that film.

It's a tragic and moving american story. Perhaps that is partly whe I think Turner couldn't ruin it in his movie version of "The Killer Angels." But I highly recommend that book to anyone even slightly interested in a historical novel. It's a great story.

While looking around for info on "The Killer Angels" I found Virtual Gettysburg. Wow! This is the next best thing to actually visiting the battleground.

I'd like to go back there someday. And, if I can manage it, I'll re-read "The Killer Angels" just before rolling in...
