Review
Summer 1863; the Confederacy pushed north into Pennsylvania and Union divisions converged to face them, the two great armies would clash at Gettysburg, one of the bloodiest, some 50,000 lives were lost, battles in US history and a turning point in the Civil War. For three days, through such legendary actions as Little Round Top and Pickett's Charge, the fate of "one nation, indivisible" hung in the balance. An epic recreation, superbly shot, with a wealth of Hollywood talent, a supporting cast of thousands and meticulous attention to detail. Based on Michael Shaara's Pulitzer Prize-winning book 'The Killer Angels', filmed at actual battle locations and rigorously authenticated. Only weakness I'd have loved a map to follow the development of the battle.
