I watched Ron Maxwell's movie "Gettysburg", which depicts in good detail the first and second days of the battle of Gettysburg. The defence of "Little Round Top" and Jeff Daniel's portrayal of Col. Joshua Lawrence Chamberlain were impressive. I liked the movie pretty much although I haven't seen many American Civil War movies to compare this with. Suggestions welcome.. :-)

If all goes well, I plan to visit Saratoga and Gettysburg this Summer.

Glory featuring Matthew Broderick, Denzel Washington and Morgan Freeman comes to mind. Also Cold Mountain (Jude Law), a drama set during the Civil War.
