When it comes to the Civil War, I’m not real emotional. I don’t feel deep, spiritual things on fields where “something stays”. (Not that there’s anything wrong with that.) But this particular sequence from the film Glory always gets to me, especially the part where Matthew Broderick sends his horse off at a gallop. Some folks call the film maudlin, but they should understand that the writers had to tone the script down from what actually happened to make the movie less Hollywood. To me, it’s Brian’s Song, Rudy and Big Fish all rolled into one. Guys know just what I’m talking about.
God, Youtube is such a time sucker.
