This a very interesting video that contains footage of Civil War Veterans at the 50 Year Anniversary in 1913. All Old Soldiers now – and comrades from both sides.

One onlooker said:

The climax was to be a re-enactment of Pickett’s Charge. As the rebel yell rang out and the old Confederates started forward again across the fields, a moan – a gigantic gasp of unbelief – rose from the Union men on Cemetery Ridge. It was then that the Yankees, unable to restrain themselves longer, burst from behind the stone wall and flung themselves upon their former enemies; not in mortal combat but embracing them in brotherly love and affection

How fascinating and how moving!
