Teal'c, hands down. The man dual wields P-90s, while I'm not a fan of either dual wielding or the 5.7mm, that's pretty bad ass. And he does it effectively.

Is that the one where the Afrikaners go back in time with AK-47s to help Bobby Lee?

I wonder what would happen if the union issued 1860 henrys as the official serice rifle and cranked up production on gatlings.

In the book....not much.

In the real War of Northern Aggression, the Union probably would have won a bit more handily in a few places, but until Grant became Chief of Staff, the Union still wouldn't have had the necessary leadership to win.

Im a northener to the core (wont say yankee cause i hate the NY Yankees.)

The union needed A more organized army, hell in the beginning some even had grey, green, other color uniforms, and many were overglorified state militias, a large army organized like today would be awesome, and i think henrys woulde ended the war a lot quicker. Ending slavery was pretty badass too.

I love Turtledove's work. I powered through Guns of the South and his Timeline-191 and am reading his World War series. In a nutshell it involves aliens invading during the middle of WW2 and fucking everything up. Good read.

Also, Adrian Brody looks like Jesus.
