    DANVILLE, Va. - Dr. James I. "Buddy" Robertson said Wednesday that emotion is the key element in the movie "Gods and Generals."Robertson, a renowned Civil War historian, was the historical consultant on the Warner Bros./Ted Turner movie that features Confederate Gen. Thomas J. "Stonewall" Jackson as its main character."Gods and Generals" is an adaptation of a book written by Jeff Shaara and is the prequel to "The Killer Angels," on which the film "Gettysburg" was based.The movie deviates from the book with a healthy dose of Jackson's character taken from Robertson's biography."This is the greatest Civil War movie ever made,"...

    Happy 234th birthday America! The War Between the States Sesquicentennial, 150th Anniversary, runs from 2010 through 2015. The Georgia Division Sons of Confederate Veterans has an information page. Make it a family affair to attend the events planned throughout the USA . The National SCV Sesquicentennial Commission has a website. The fading photos and stories of Union and Confederate Veterans from that summer of 1913, shaking hands, sharing a meal and trading war stories is a special part of our National Heritage well worth sharing. Do young people know who Gen. Robert Edward Lee, Major Gen. George Edward Pickett and...

    TN Baptist Convention ^ | 26 February 2003 | Phil Boatwright
    The sweeping Civil War epic begins in early 1861 and continues through 1863, just prior to the Battle of Gettysburg. Focusing on the leadership of the Norths Col. Joshua Lawrence Chamberlain (Jeff Daniels), one of the Unions finest military leaders, and two extraordinary Confederate generals, Robert E. Lee (Robert Duvall) and Thomas Stonewall Jackson (Stephen Lang), the story examines in detail the strategies, sacrifices, and religious nature of these three men.At 3 hours and 49 minutes, with a built-in 12-minute intermission, it is, alas, not a perfect film. Nearly every conversation in the first half has the characters speaking in...

    Does anyone really believe it's a stretch to suggest that academic history bloggers are also "motivated by 'culture war' dynamics that tended to conflate religious and political conservatives in responding to adversaries?"

    Soldier and scholar, the sword and the book. Despite some remarkable individuals distinguished in both fields--Joshua Lawrence Chamberlain, hero of Gettysburg and a professor who ended the war as one of Grant's favorite generals, or Gen. John Galvin, Supreme Allied Commander Europe in the 1980s and a noted historian of the American Revolution--the academy and barracks often look askance at one another. While the United States is in the midst of a war that obliterated part of their city, the university senate at Columbia University recently voted overwhelmingly to ban the Reserve Officer Training Corps from returning to the campus....

    Wednesday June 5th, 2003 It has been over one hundred and thirty years since Maine has had a politician whose word you could trust. It has been over 130 years since Major General Joshua Lawrence Chamberlain walked the halls of Maine politics and it has been that long since we have had a man whose honesty, integrity and courage emulated Governor Chamberlain. Look at today's crop of Maine politicians, we have as governor one John E. Baldacci, a man who cries, complains and accuses President Bush of forcing the No child left behind act on Maine, yet as Maine's Democratic...

    The College Republicans at Maine's Bowdoin College invited former US Congressional candidate and current Republican Winston-Salem (NC) City Councilman Vernon Johnson to campus as part of their observance of Black History Month. They weren't ready for the firestorm that followed.The co-president of Bowdoin's College Democrats, Alex Cornell du Houx, appeared on Monday's Michael Medved Show to defend his statements as published in the Bowdoin Orient.Many found the rhetoric put forward by the College Republicans offensive and unwarranted. The claim, taken from Vernon Robinson's website, that "The Only Thing he has in Common with Jesse Jackson is a good TAN," [sic]...

  • A deeply religious movie about war: Kinsolving on his role as Gen. Barksdale in 'Gods & Generals'

    Even though it chronicles one half of the Eastern sector of the bloodiest war ever fought on American soil, the new movie "Gods & Generals," is one of the most deeply religious movies ever produced. In every one of the four Gospels, there is that account of the violence of Jesus Christ. For after a brief sermonette of one verse, he took "a small scourge of cords" and used it to whip the money changers and sacrificial animal salesmen out of the Temple in Jerusalem. Two of the most devoutly religious and courageous soldiers in American history were Thomas Jonathan...
  • This Day In History - Civil War July 2, 1863 The second day of battle at Gettysburg

    1863 : The second day of battle at Gettysburg General Robert E. Lee's Army of Northern Virginia attacks General George G. Meade's Army of the Potomac at both Culp's Hill and Little Round Top, but fails to move the Yankees from their positions. On the north end of the line, or the Union's right flank, Confederates from General Richard Ewell's corps struggled up Culp's Hill, which was steep and heavily wooded, before being turned back by heavy Union fire. But the most significant action was on the south end of the Union line. General James Longstreet's corps launched an attack...

    We missed our opportunity yesterday to pay tribute to the heroes of Gettysburg Day 2, the decisive day of the battle. Among the heroes who saved the Union on July 2, 1863 were the 282 men of the First Minnesota Volunteers. Their story cannot be told often enough, and Mackubin Thomas Owens made it the centerpiece of his terrific 2003 "Reflections on Memorial Day." As John has previously observed here: The pivot of American history turns on the second day at Gettysburg, and, while thousands of men fought gallantly on both sides that day, there were two points where the...
