A New Look at Gettysburg Battle

Recently, I was contacted by the History Channel regarding a new Civil War film, Gettysburg, produced by Ridley and Tony Scott.  It airs on History Monday, May 30th, at 9pm (EST), and you can watch the trailer and read a brief summary of the program. As an avid fan of history the previews for this film look amazing and well worth watching. What do you think? To learn more about the Civil War also check out Americans Wage War On Other Americans.

Gettysburg is a 2-hour HISTORY special that kicks off a week of History programming commemorating the 150’th anniversary of the Civil War. Executive produced by Ridley and Tony Scott, this special strips away the romanticized veneer of the Civil War. It presents the pivotal battle of Gettysburg in a new light: as a visceral, terrifying and deeply personal experience, fought by men with everything on the line. Compelling CGI  and powerful action footage place viewers in the midst of the fighting, delivering both an emotional cinematic experience and an information packed look at the turning points, strategic decisions, technology and little known facts surrounding the greatest engagement ever fought on American soil. The special begins in the high stakes summer of 1863, as the Confederate Army of Northern Virginia crosses into Pennsylvania.   Trailed by the Union’s Army of the Potomac, Lee’s 75,000 strong army heads towards Harrisburg, converging instead near a quiet farm town, Gettysburg.  Known then only as a crossroads where ten roads running in all directions converge like a wagon wheel, this small town would become site of an epic battle between North and South.  For three days, each side fought there for their vision of what America should be. In collaboration with highly esteemed Civil War historians, HISTORY combed through hundreds of individual accounts of the battle to find the unique voices of struggle, defeat and triumph that tell the larger story of a bitterly conflicted nation.

  1. I watched the trailer. The footage looks great, but I wonder…are they going to play that silly music while the movie is runnning? It would ruin it for me.

  2. —-NO time, talent or money available for
    the 20th, 30th, 40th, 50th and last year 50th
    Anniversaries of the awesomely important
    KOREAN WAR —but plenty on hand for more
    ill-timed Civil War retreads.

    IF Scott wants to get beyond capstone sycophancy
    he, and everyone else, should get to that leaked
    video of the Australian PM Rudd selling out his
    very country to the RED Chinese.

    Treason and EUGENICS is the name of the present
    game. Scott should know this.
