Historical and Enjoyable

by mailburton@verizon.net on 6/10/2008

Gettysburg was filmed with very good historical accuracy, though it is not done in the style of a documentary. It follows stories that show the historical side along with the personalities of those involved in this tragic battle. It is a must for anyone who ever wants to visit the battlefield at Gettysburg, as well as for anyone who enjoys history. The producers went to great lengths to ensure accuracy, even down to casting actors who could be made up to look very much like the character that they played on screen. In the credits you will see the historical character alongside the actor who played that part. Absolutely great DVD. Read More

Editors Note
Note The TNT original GETTYSBURG is a sweeping production depicting the events that led up to the Battle of Gettysburg and the three-day battle itself, which claimed tens of thousands of lives, turned the tide of the Civil War, and eventually put an end to slavery in the United States. An excellent production illuminating the horrors and heroes of this uniquely idealistic war, the film boasts terrific performances from Jeff Daniels, Tom Berenger, and Martin Sheen. The screenplay was based on the best-selling novel THE KILLER ANGELS by Michael Shaara.
Plot Summary
Summary GETTYSBURG captures in vivid detail one of the most famous battles of the Civil War, in which more than 50,000 American lives were lost. Covering three days of brutal military campaigns, the film re-creates the world in which Robert E. Lee, James Longstreet, Lewis Armistead, and others made their tactical decisions and demonstrated their leadership.^Special attention is paid to historical accuracy in costumes, epic battle scenes, and weaponry. The film alternates between Northern and Southern perspectives in order to deliver a full picture of the battle that changed American history.
