Jed, congratulations on the show. As an adjunct I just watched the video "Gods and Generals" about Stonewall Jackson and the battles of Fredricksburg and Chancellorsville. Quite a bit of attention was paid to the Irish Brigades on both sides and the information about the farm on Marye's Heights was brought out.

Robert Duvall made an excellent Robert E. Lee and Jeff Daniels portrayed Chamberlain.

The history was quite interesting to me as I lived in Quantico,Va. for 4 years and played and camped as a Boy Scout in the woods where both armies fought.

I am looking forward to seeng "Gettysburg" and the final one in the trilogy "The Last Full Measure"
