Synopsis

History Channel documentary that revisits the 1863 Battle of Gettysburg, arguably the turning point of the American Civil War. Fresh from a victory in Virginia in May 1863, General Robert E. Lee decided to embark upon the second phase of his invasion of the North. However, his Confederate army was met and defeated in Gettysburg by the Union forces under the command of General George Gordon Meade. This documentary, executively produced by Ridley Scott and his brother, Tony, takes an in-depth look at the battle, with an emphasis on how the average soldier on the ground would have experienced it.
