But, some parts of this video made me question that belief. (General Sherman was kind of a jerk.)
Some dead men that looked very, very young.
Not glamorized versions of war. But, real pictures of the men that fought this fight. Pictures of men that that were sons, brothers, and dads.

This DVD also has bonus segments on Slavery (not just black people), Sam Davis (Brave...and the letter to his mother.....sigh....)and The Palmyra Incident (Uggg....horrible).
To our Confederate soldiers,
Those who fell in fiercest fighting and sleep beneath the sod of every Southern state. Those who have passed away in the after years of peace, and whose ashes now hallow old Henry's Hill sides, Those who like a benediction, still limp in our our midst. May God preserve forever in our hearts, their memory and in all minds, a knowledge of their motives and their cause.
That real battles happened near where we are living.
It was real.
It is real.
