More Detail:

GODS AND GENERALS paints a brilliant portrait of the Christian lives of the great military leaders during the tumultuous years leading up to the Battle of Gettysburg in the American Civil War. Col. Thomas Jackson is called up to recruit troops from Western Virginia while teaching at VMI. He leads them to the battle of Manassas. There, he stands, and so do his troops, like a stone wall, thus acquiring his name. The movie traces his career from his significant victories against overwhelming troops to his untimely death. In the process, it also features Joshua Chamberlain preparing his troops in Maine and General Lee leading the Confederate Army.

GODS AND GENERALS is a magnificent Civil War epic, historically accurate in nearly every respect, yet powerfully entertaining and emotive. It has a mighty unity that brings history magnificently alive. The most amazing part of the movie is its recognition of the deep spiritual values of those involved in the Civil War. Prayers are sincere and heartfelt. References to Scripture are constantly invoked. GODS AND GENERALS is a monument of filmmaking which will be remembered as long as there are devices to watch such a superb historical epic.
