Patrick Falci speaks about the making of the movie "Gettysburg"
I found this while browsing Youtube. It is Patrick Falci making a speech at the 148th Gettysburg reenactment.
Patrick Falci, an historian of A.P. Hill and reenactor who served as the film's historical advisor as well as playing A.P. Hill himself.
He talks about the making of the film, including how many people were slotted which for which role, bloopers, and more. Some parts are hilarious. Can you imagine George C. Scott as Lee, or Marlon Brando as Longstreet?

Thanks for bringing this to our attention. I believe that the Killer Angels and the movie Gettysburg did more to bring Civil war history to people than all the round table discussions put on in the last 50 years.
We may quibble about the movie and its portrayels of the people, but the feelings of the characters come through very well.
