It was his last film. He was already dying of the brain cancer that killed him during filming.

And the boy over there with the color guard. That's Private Robert Tyler Jones.
His grandfather was President of the United States.

The colonel behind me, that's Colonel William Aylett.
Now, his great grandfather... was the Virginian Patrick Henry.
It was Patrick Henry who said to your King George II:

Colonel Freemantle.

I should have remembered his name. He's got an extended scene with Longstreet too. While that scene gives you some good incite into some of the strategy that went on, you can see why it was cut.

All I remember of my time on that set, was that we were camped off of Pumping Station Road and we took pick-up truck shuttles into town.

Other than that, we all lined up for the Picketts Charge scene, but mostly it was "hurry up and wait". I was there for two separate weekends.......but if anything I did wound up on film, it was only as one gray dot amongst many.

It was huge though........not quite as big as the 135th........but quite large
indeed!

Regards,

Rick

Wow! I'm impressed!

If I bring my copy of the movie with me for the spring muster, will you autograph it?

I'd be glad to Dear.

I was only a humble Signal Corps Cpl at the time, but I went in as Infantry.....with some boys from North Carolina.

I can sign it " 33 33 33" which in Signal Language means " message received and understood".......(by the Myer stutter code).....

So it would look like,

"XXOO 33 33 33

CPL RME ALLEN"

Pretty damn cool, huh??

Rick

Rick, it must have been such a thrill to have been a part of the filming on that day. Did you feel as if you were back in time?

I remember reading in one of Mark Nesbitt's books about certain paranormal experiences that some reenactors recorded during filming; notably, the change in temperature in the "dips" of ground during the filming of Pickett's Charge.

One of my most memorable experiences in Gettysburg was walking Pickett's Charge at 3:00 on July 3rd, 2003...

Anna, that is rather a hard question to answer.

Did I feel like I was a part of something "Greater"?

Yes, I really did.

It was a unique experience and I loved it.

The difference is knowing that what is unique is not necessarily different......but that doesnt matter either.........its all for the best.....

Regards,

Rick

Rick,

The greater question here is, can we see you in Da Movie ??? May I please have your autograph and on a signal corp flag too ?? Woohhoo.. Now we know 1,2,3,4,5 movie stars on here !! Mike, JD, Linda, Rick and ... who was that other one?????

You humble guy ...ya never said a word.

Our captain and his brother were in Gettysburg too. Jason was in a couple scenes ( climbing over the Emmitsburg Rd fences on da charge) and is the drummer behind Chamberlain on the painting Kuntzler did and the march where the ladies come out and say, 'I thought the war was in Virginia' . Christopher was also in G&G with General Jackson , he was a little drummer boy. Also a couple of our men were in G&G one was in the firing squad with the deserters, other was in the scene where 'there stands Stonewall' .

I think it would be something you never will get to experience again in a lifetime, so treasure it dearly.

Wow ....

Mindy

Yes Mark, yes I will. What name I will be using remains a mystery, but yes, due to popular demand, I will be signing.

Regards,

Rick

Anna! So... were you trailing the re-enactors' column? (That is if you started off at PoW). If so - you were "right behind me"

AWESOME!!!

july 3, 2003 - 140th Anniversary - was the 1st time that I walked the Hallow Field as a part of LH\Re-enactors Crowd. Shortly afterwards I have posted on WoV all the feelings that I have experienced before, during and even after that memorable walk (unfortunately that post didn't survive)....

It is amusing to find someone who "did it with me" so many years after!!!

Hey, i'm in that last pic!!!

Our Captain from the 21st was in the movie, apparently there is a scene where you can see him, but i've never found it. Another member of the 21st, one of the founders in fact, died during the making. He had a heart attack, and died in GB hospital a few days later. He is buried close to where i live, and his headstone has a Confederate flag on it. At least one of our guys was in Gods and Generals.

Regards, Mitch.
