Gettysburg, in the flesh

I randomly came across this video on YouTube, and I was absolutely astonished. It is footage of the commemeration of the 75th anniversary of the Battle of Gettysburg, which would be in the year 1938. In this video, you will see actual veterans of the battle - both Blue and Gray.



As one commenter to the video so rightly put it, history can sometimes seem only like a dream or a story, but seeing these men in the video - actual flesh and blood human beings - brings the Civil War to life like few things I have ever seen; and I have actually been to the Gettysburg battlefield.

"If a nation expects to be ignorant and free... it expects what never was, and never will be." -Thomas Jefferson

I think Burns used this video in his Civil War documentary.
