    Gettysburg (1993)

    When Gen. Lee and his army are marching into Cashtown, there's a band playing Dixie with the marching troops, and includes a very familiar looking instrument (along with some really neat old-school brass instruments)

    Neat picture. Looks like some over-the-shoulder saxhorns.

  3. It's in the tuba range, but wow, Wessex really makes everything, even an over-the-shoulder saxhorn (which looks beautiful):

  4. I live near Gettysburg and actually know and play with several people who were in that band for the movie. They are all part of a civil war reenactment band in the area: https://www.facebook.com/federalcitybrassband

  5. Scratch that... I posted too soon. The band I am referring to was in the movie Lincoln (2012) and I don't think they were ever pictured on camera. Just played music in the background. Sorry for the mis-information...
