Summer 1863. The Confederacy pushes north into Pennsylvania. Union divisions converge to face them. Two great armies will clash at Gettysburg, site of a theology school. For three days, through such legendary actions as Little Round Top and Picketts Charge, the fate of one nation, indivisible hangs in the balance.
The bloodiest battle fought on American soil comes to the screen in a powerful production about the strategies, calculations, mistakes and heroism that turned the tide of the Civil Wara film Civil War buffs will find indispensible (Sun-Times). Tom Berenger, Jeff Daniels, Martin Sheen, Richard Jordan and more play key roles in this magnificent epic based on Michael Shaaras Pulitzer Prize-winning The Killer Angels, filmed at actual battle locations and rigorously authenticated down to the boots.
