I watched a movie called “Gettysburg” not long ago, and I was moved by some of characters. I believe that many people know about the story. The love and friendship between the Southern and Northern generals were touched me. We all know the war is cruel, and the generals from the both sides used to be very good colleagues in some other battles. However, the Civil War took them apart. They were force to become enemies and fought for where they were standing. There is a scene about a general from South asking about a general from North after the battle before dying, and he was told the Northern general was down. He said: “no, he can’t die, not both of us”. I was moved by what he said. He still cared about his friend at his last moment, and it also reflected the cruelty of the war.
