One of the main differences between these films is that they are not based on the same battles therefore there is obvious discrepancies.

This becomes an issue in the films because although Gettysburg is only about the battle at Gettysburg and the preceding few days it is quite a bit longer. This combined with the multitude of battles shown in each film allows Gettysburg to go more in-depth with conversation and character development. To give a brief overview of each film, I will start with Gods and Generals. Gods
