And Longstreet so badly wanting not to send the men forward that, at the end, he just nods his agreement to start the march to Pickett. Definitely goosebumps. I’ve never seen a re-enactment. Must be amazing. Weren’t more of the soldiers lost to diseases than to battles?
The Pickett group marching into a hail of lead part actually caused my wife and I to cry while watching it. Simply unbelievable.
I recorded the sound of the re-enactment with my Zoom H4n. The canons are amazing. The guns sound like popcorn. I dodged a bullet but I’m fine. ;-)
