  • Trivia

    • Geographical Error: Colonel Devine says to his men that if they win the battle of Gettysburg they will "march through the Shenandoah Valley to the steps of the Capitol". That would be impossible, since the Shenandoah Valley lies to the south-west of Gettysburg and would take them away from Washington. Actually, the historical battle of Gettysburg was preceded by the passing through the Shenandoah Valley in May 1863, almost two months before Gettysburg.

      Control Voice: Despite everything we do, we may never free ourselves from the bonds of fate.

    • [Opening Narration]
      Control Voice: It is said that great conflicts are not settled by words but by iron and blood. But what if we could revisit those decisions? Would we still surrender to violence?
