OK, so how is showing that the Confederate characters in the movie BELIEVE Lincoln started the war anything other than reality? You would prefer they go around spouting "Well we know we brought this on ourselves and are a bunch of worthless slave-owning inbreeds, but damn those Yankees are touchy."

Do any of the Confederate characters ever use the “n” word? I noticed in Gettysburg that the Rebs, when referring to slaves, sounded as if they were writing for the New York Times op-ed page.

Come to think of it, no American soldier in Forrest Gump ever used the word gook.
