Good on them for gifting it to a museum rather than trying to make a quick buck.

I recall watching the movie quite a while ago, can't remember whether I liked it or not.

I have always found the US civil war an interesting topic but this isn't a part of the world where you can get anyone interested or knowledgeable in it to have a discussion.

Glory was more on the history side verse being entertaining. That means I really liked it. You should watch it again. I've got the DVD somehwhere

Very cool about the sword. They could have sold it for a ton of cash since it is very famous.
