  2. 1. Gettysburg. The confederate Colonel just dropped the hammer on empty chambers, pointing at Joshua Chamberlain on Little Round Top. Anonymous got 2 and 3.

    FYI, the Little Round Top Area where Chamberlain fount is NOTHING like what they show in the movie. The 20th Maine wasn't on top of L. Round Top and there really wasn't much of a hill to climb for the Reb's to get to them from the bottom. This makes their defense of the flank all that much more amazing. But it wouldn't have "looked" as dramatic on film, I guess.
