Synopsis

A prequel to the movie Gettysburg, “Gods and Generals” is a 3-hour historic drama about the early years of the Civil War, ending in 1863 with the Battle of Chancellorsville, where Stonewall Jackson was mortally wounded by his own soldiers. Colonel Joshua Chamberlain (Jeff Daniels) is a college professor who volunteers as a soldier for the Union Army. Robert E. Lee (Robert Duvall), leader of the Confederate Army, must decide between faithfulness to his country and favoritism toward Virginia. Thomas “Stonewall” Jackson (Stephen Lang), a great Confederate leader, is a Christian who demonstrates faith and courage.

Dove Review

This film wonderfully portrays both sides of the war. Dove recommends Gods and Generals as a must-see film, but there are a few instances of objectionable elements: some mild crude language, tobacco use and violence.
