The Irish Brigade - Gods and Generals
I believe this is one of the most moving scenes in any movie. The music is one of my most played in iTunes.
This really brings the Civil War home. Men were fighting men they respected and knew.
Half way through a valiant charge (during the battle of Fredricksburg) these Irish immigrants realize they are fighting each other. They believe in their cause and continue to fight, but at the end salute the northern Irish brigade for their bravery.
Note: There is a lot of shooting going on and if your not used to Civil War reenactments, I'm sorry!
Thank you for reading!
