    They should have made a parody about Gettysburg called, “Run Germans, Run”.

    I love the last scene: “By the way Sir, you can participate in OUR holy war. The Bush government expresses its gratitude in advance.” And General Stonnenwoll Jacksonson: “Damn it, I could have been the greatest Northern States killer and racist of all times, if the war hadn’t ended already.”

    I’m still looking for someone fluent in German and willing to critique my translations of three Civil War poems by an “achtundvierziger” whose Northern States regiment occupied Alabama, Mississippi, Arkansas, Louisiana and Texas.
