North & South TV miniseries Battle of Gettysburg
Had to have been shot in late fall, since most of the trees have no leaves, and the ones that do are shades of yellow and orange.

The Perryville scene in "Men Go To Battle" was somewhat…lacking.

Kim, do you mean to tell me that siege artillery and Gatling guns were NOT used in the New Mexico Campaign of 1862? lol.

The second link is well worth the read. I especially like the point about portraying Union soldiers in the same light as our Vietnam veterans plays into the evil Union invaders myth.

I'll second what Col. Durnford said. The second link is a very interesting read

The initial battle scene in the Free State of Jones. When the sergeant is calling cadence "Hup, two, three, four" I knew we were in for it.
