Reccomend some civil war movies?

Post by JediMindTricks » Fri May 22, 2020 11:34 pm

Hi ladies & gents. One of my favorite movies for 25+ years has been Gettysburg. I was wondering if there are other outstanding civil war movies anyone could recommend? Thanks

The Ken Burns series on the Civil War. I think that was his first in a line of excellent documentaries.

Haven’t seen the film in its entirety in a long time, but Gone With the Wind has a Civil War theme which If I remember as quite heavy.

The Red Badge of Courage is a classic Civil War movie. I have known of this film for quite some time, just haven’t seen it yet. I have the book. Highly recommended reading if not done so. Link for book and DVD can be found below.

Glory is a great Civil War movie as well.
In the immortal words of President Harrison Ford, Air Force One: Peace is not the absence of war... it is the presence of justice.
