Battle of Gettysburg: Trivia


The 1993 movie Gettysburg focused primarily on the actions of Joshua Lawrence Chamberlain, John Buford, Robert E. Lee, and James Longstreet during the battle. The first day focused on Buford's cavalry defense, the second day on Chamberlain's defense at Little Round Top, and the third day on Pickett's Charge.

The most controversial of the Confederate actions as they invaded the North was the seizure of some 40 northern African Americans, a few of whom were escaped fugitive slaves but most freemen. They were sent south into slavery under guard.
