I thought this was interesting, my only criticisms are I thought the Confederate uniforms should be more dirty and I dont think a soldier would risk his rifle but getting shot off by trying to lure a sniper and may use a stick or something instead. Use the arrow bars in the left corner of the video to get more of a panoramic view.

Didn't they use their ramrods as lures ?

So I've seen in the sketches of fighting at Spotsylvania.

Thanks for that Vince : it's a rather good evocation.

Vince,

What do you make of the episode regarding the patrol, when we see the Confederate Major, with his slave in tow ? Not a fashionable depiction, to show a black man acting the part of a slave in confederate uniform, serving in the front line trenches, alongside his owner.

Prevailing interpretation of the past doesn't like that kind of thing !

You'll see any number of screen vignettes showing black soldiers in blue uniform, fighting for their freedom : it doesn't sit well with that outlook to pitch an alternative scene.

A refreshing development, I think.

Regards, Phil

This is outstanding. I'm considering buying one of those cheap VR sets just so I can experience it without losing the immersion by clicking on arrows.

Thanks for sharing.

Cheers,

Colin

I thought this would be a virtual reality game. Now that would be awesome.
