The Battle of Monterey Pass took place on the Confederate retreat from Gettysburg. There actually were two retreats: the wounded took a different route while the rest of them made their way through Monterey Pass. The battle took place on both sides of the Mason-Dixon Line and across three counties during a raging thunderstorm. At night. I don't have any memories of that battle either since my Civil War self met his demise on the Triangular Field on July 2. Tom Berenger's (Longstreet) beard was by far the worst one in the movie. It also changed, depending on the scene. LOL. Knew the reincarnated Pickett -- Stephen Lang's performance used to drive him crazy.
