firstname.lastname@example.org The Civil War movie "Gods and Generals" is better than its prequel, "Gettysburg," two re-enactors said Tuesday night during the intermission at the film's Maryland premiere. Both films were directed by Ronald Maxwell. "The battle scenes are very good and more personal" than "Gettysburg," re-enactor Dennis Ebersole of Chamberburg said. "It is absolutely fantastic. It is more emotional. The music is very touching," said his wife, Nancy Ebersole, also a re-enactor.
