Bull Run

This battle was fought today in 1861. Here's a clip from Gods and Generals a 2003 movie which was in my opinion equal parts great and rubbish. Great battle scenes rubbish dialogue. Still worth watching though.


  1. There was a story going round that on the day "Stonewall" was meant as pejorative rather than an honourific.... I guess we'll never know, but he certainly took away the "positive press"!!

  2. That's debated story. Good thing General Bee wasn't thinking "mud fence" or "brick outhouse." "Stonewall" has one notably ugly statue at the Bull Run Battlefield.
