|Still Standing Jan 27, 2010|
|I enjoyed this documentary, although it was not very in-depth and it was too short. When it was over, I thought, "Is that all?" It would have been nice to have seen some information on his descendants.|
|Stonewall Jackson vs. Thomas Jackson Apr 8, 2009|
|Stonewall Jackson was a Confederate and as African American, that makes me uneasy. So imagine my surprise to learn what Jackson did for my people in the state of Virgina. Jackson was special because while he fought for the South, he was progressive (for a man of his time) when it came to race. This DVD gives us a history of Jackson's life and his evolution as a man of God. It also discuss his relationship with his two wives, how his mother's death affected him and his love for children.|
However this DVD missed the boat on so many levels. First of all, the video spent too much time showing us Virgina's landscape. Once you see the video, you will know what I am talking about. Also, near the end it showed a reunion of religious leaders, family of Jackson, and descendants of free and enslaved blacks that Jackson helped, fellowship together at a church. Why in the world did the producers not interview some of the people to get their perspective of Jackson? Also the producers stayed away from discussing what historians and medical experts believe were symptoms of Jackson's autism, which may explain some of Jackson's strange ways.
The video does offer a surpise when discussing the relationship between Jackson and Lewis (his black servant). Jackson and Lewis had a disagreement over which horse Jackson was to ride into battle on. The argument became so heated, harsh words were exchanged until Jackson backed down and agreed that Lewis was right. If you read anything about Jackson, you would know Jackson never backed down from a confrontation with any man(read about his relationship with General AP Hill). However, he backed down and listened to Lewis. LOL
I don't know if this DVD is worth the price, but it tells an interesting story about one of our greatest generals and tries to seperate the warrior and reveal the real man...Thomas Jackson.

|This documentary dvd is tops and helps you get to know the real person. I had viewed it on PBS and wanted my husband to have it for Christmas. It is a birdseye view of the man in "Gods and Generals". Inspiring!|
|Interest in Catholicism Addressed Jul 30, 2008|
|Another reviewer states that Jackson's interest in Catholicism is totally ignored in this film. I'm not sure what film that reviewer watched, but it could not have been this one. Jackson's interest in Catholicism while stationed in Mexico is addressed head-on. |
It's a great film and is meant to focus on Jackson's Christian faith. That's not bias, that was the whole point of the film!
|Good overview, but a bit slanted Jul 29, 2008|
|This film is pretty well done, as far as cinematography and general historical content. It does a good job of exploring early influences, particularly in childhood, on Jackson's religious and world views. |
In focusing so heavily on Jackson's religion, however, the filmmakers reveal their bias -- and biased filmmaking is known to overlook inconvenient facts or storylines that don't mesh as well. Such as Jackson's intensive study of Catholicism while living in Mexico during the Mexican War; Jackson seriously considered becoming a Catholic, and spent many hours of study and conversation with a bishop, yet no mention of this no-doubt formative encounter is mentioned in this film. The audience cannot help but notice other facts that are as conspicuous as this, and are urged to read Robertson's excellent biography instead of viewing this.
History aside, the cinematography is decent, but not great. There's lots of unidentified scenery (and I mean LOTS of grass waving in the wind, and tree branches swaying in the wind, and clouds moving in the wind...).
