An epic event told by rank armatures

As a Civil War buff I received this DVD as a gift. It is almost better to use it as a coaster. Though the film accurately tells the story of the battle, and includes some of the more interesting anecdotes, most of the acting is so very poor that it is barely watchable. The few who do a worthy job are not even credited for their performance, and most who are should wish to have their names removed from the listing. Many have criticized the Ron Maxwell film "Gettysburg" (1993) for bad acting on the part of many supporting players, but they should win rave reviews when compared to nearly everyone in this work. The only redeeming feature are some of the visuals. However, so much of the casting is also horribly annoying -- a portly R.E.Lee indeed -- that one can't even watch with the sound off just to see the worthy reenactment scenes. As much as I would like to say the film has usefulness as a historical documentary, it is just to painful to watch to serve in even that capacity.
