Revealing mistake: In one of Pickett's charge scene the bayonets are obviously rubber.
Sergeant 'Buster' Kilrain: Some of them, they load and load, they never fire. They just keep right on loading. Some of them come home with seven, eight bullets rammed up in the barrel, never fired a shot.
Trivia: During Pickett's charge, Armistead's brigade gets caught at a wooden fence. There is a close up of one of his aides rallying the men and getting shot. If you look closely you will see it's Ted Turner, who bankrolled the movie.
