Another Fantastic Civil War Veteran Video

This is one of my favorite videos of Civil War Veterans.  It’s a montage of clips from the 75th Anniversary of the Battle of Gettysburg, where President Franklin Delano Roosevelt delivers a speech and unveils the veterans monument.  Something about seeing these people on video makes the Civil War seem not so long ago.  It really brings home that these were real people, not just paintings or stories told in history books.
