The Smithsonian spent a lot of time taping veterans around the turn of the century- I have had access to many of these over the years- being a true CW nut- at it always brngs chills to me to hear a Virginian describing the carnage at Gettysburg, or the sadness of surrender.

It is amazing when you think about it the guys in the video actually fought in the war.. makes you realize it wasn't all that long ago in the grand scheme of things. My Grandparents knew Vertens of that war.

Thanks for posting!

That's a really nice video. I thought I'd seen just about all the footage of the Civil War and it's soldiers that exists, but I had not seen this one before. My Great Grandfather fought in that war. He passed in 1943 (?) and I have the US Flag that covered his coffin. Thanks for the post!

I had 3 relatives/ Uncles who fought at Gettysburg. One is buried there----not a stones throw from where Lincoln delivered the address. I've been there several times, once during the re-enactment. Everyone should go there. It's very humbling----knowing what happened there.

I can't describe the feeling I got looking at his tombstone----still brings tears to my eyes. Bob
