General Armistead:"Will the British come in on our side?"
General Kemper:"Oh hell yeah... they'll come in. They'll come in when we don't need them no more. Just like some damn bank gonna loan you money when your no longer in debt."

General Kemper:"I gotta hand it to you George. You certainly do have a talent for trivializing the momentous and complicating the obvious. You ever considered running for congress?"

General Kemper:"My home is in Virginia. The government of my home is home. Virginia would not allow itself to be ruled by some king over there in London. And it's not about to let itself be ruled by some president in Washington! Virginia by God sir, is gonna be run by Virginians!"

Soldier:"Howdy friend. Where are you headed?"
Harrison:"General Longstreet. I gotta see the General."
Soldier:"Is that a fact?"
Harrison:"I know General Lee has his headquarters up here a little ways. Wherever he is General Longstreet is nearby. You fellows take me that way, this is urgent."
Soldier:"Let me put it to you like this stranger. Your not in uniform and your coming through my picket line. I'll take you up there, but if nobody back there knows you, well I guess unfortunately, you'll have to be hanged."

General Buford:"You know whats going to happen here in the morning? The whole damn reb army is going to be here. They'll move through this town, occupy these hills on the other side and when our people get here Lee will have the high ground. There will be the devil to pay! The high ground! Meade will come in slowly, cautiously. New to command. They'll be on his back in Washington. Wire hot with messages 'Attack! Attack!'. So he will set up a ring around these hills. And when Lee's army is nicely entrenched behind fat rocks on the high ground, Meade will finally attack, if he can coordinate the army. Straight up the hillside, out in the open, in that gorgeous field of fire. We will charge valiantly... and be butchered valiantly!"

Sergeant Kilrain:"Colonel, it's gonna be a hot day today. Seeing that you've already been down with the heat, please, will you ride the horse Colonel that the good Lord provided. Instead of marching around in the hot damn dirty dust."
Colonel Chamberlain:"Well you walked."
Sergeant Kilrain:"Colonel darling, I've been in the infantry since you was in books. It's the first few thousand miles, after that a man gets limber with his feet."

Sergeant Kilrain:"You cannot judge a race. Any man who judges by the group is a pea wit. You take men one at a time."

Colonel Chamberlain:"What a piece of work is a man, how infinite in faculty, in form and moving, how express and admirable. In action how like an angel..."
Sergeant Kilrain:"Well if he's an angel, alright then. But he damn well must be a killer angel."

General Longstreet:"His record at West Point is still the talk of both armies."
General Pickett:"Well General, you know I consider it unbecoming to a soldier all this book learning."
General Armistead:"Book learning ain't for gentlemen right George?"
General Pickett:"Nor that either."
General Longstreet:"Graduated last in his class, dead last. Quite a feat when you consider his classmates."
General Pickett:"The yankees got all the smart ones, and look where its got them."

General Pickett:"Now you suppose that we all joined a club, a gentlemen's club. Well after a time, several of the members began to intrude themselves into our private lives, our home lives. Began to tell us what we could do, what we couldn't do. Well then, wouldn't any one of us have the right to resign? I mean, just resign. Well thats what we did. That's what I did, and now these people are telling us that we don't have that right to resign."
