#1 Actual Film Footage Of The Civil War05-25-2012, 02:32 AM
Heard about this and I'm not really sure how authentic it is but I haven't been able to find anything telling me it's bogus but from Youtube, here is a 10 second clip of Confederate soldiers marching. This is the earliest known film footage of anything. This is absolutely astounding:

I'm going to reserve judgment on this. From the time photography was invented, "movement" was obtained by making flipbooks of pictures, like we all had when we were children (I'm guessing), but they could not be projected as film for decades after the invention of photography.
I'm also reserving judgment based on my adequate, but less than fluent, knowledge of French. "Un canular" is a practical joke. That's a little too neat to be the name of the photographer, I think. ;)"Today, [the American voter] chooses his rulers as he buys bootleg whiskey, never knowing precisely what he is getting, only certain that it is not what it pretends to be." - H.L.

Flipbooks came around in 1868 according to Wiki, at least the patent did.
Exposure time was too long for them to have taken multiple pictures much earlier than that.

My gut reaction is that this is film footage from a reunion around the turn of the century. Most if not all of their faces are blurred with "scratches and hits" in the film that probably were placed there to hide old men with beards. Just my videographer sense tingling. Something ain't right.Yes..this camera is heavy.
No...you can't be on TV.
Look kid, go bother the reporter...I'm busy!!!
