Trivia

DVD cover for the film
  • This theatrical film, which was produced by Turner Broadcasting, was originally planned as a miniseries for Ted Turner's television station, TNT. Civil War buff Ted Turner even has a cameo in one of the battle scenes as Colonel Waller T. Patton. During Major General Pickett's (Stephen Lang) charge, some Confederate troops come to a fence that they have to climb over. Turner plays the Confederate officer who leads the charge, then gets shot down.
  • Civil War buff Ken Burns, who wrote and directed the epic PBS documentary, The Civil War, has a cameo as the aide to Major General Hancock (Brian Mallon) during Pickett's charge. He can be seen saying "General, please get down. We cannot spare you." to Hancock, to which Hancock replies with his famous quotation, "There are times when a corps commander's life does not count."
  • Other than the actors who play the major parts, all of the soldiers are played by Civil War aficionados who regularly re-enact the battles of the War for their own enjoyment. The extras all paid their own way and even brought their own props and clothing. The battles that they fight in the film are historically accurate as well.
  • There was no actual filming of the action for this picture on the Gettysburg National Battlefield (the area is considered a sacred landmark, and re-enactments of any kind are not allowed by the Park service on the actual battlefield) so all scenes were shot nearby at a similar geographic location. However, still photography (dropped into the backgrounds during production for visual authenticity) was allowed. Unfortunately, when working with the stills taken, the film's editors found that it was impossible to digitally edit out the power lines which traversed the fields where Pickett's charge took place. According to Gettysburg Park Service official account, when the issue was presented to Turner as the reason for production delays, he immediately wrote a personal check to the Township of Gettysburg to cover the expense of putting the power lines underground across that part of the battlefield. Production was delayed until this was done and the new stills were taken. As a result, subsequent visitors to the battlefield can now view the site of Pickett's charge without seeing power lines and telephone poles.
  • Some action scenes were shot on the actual battlefield. No scenes involving opposing fire or hand to hand combat were allowed.
