GettysburgOn the first three days of July of 1963, the Union and the Confederacy engaged in a battle that would turn the tides of war and lead to the South's eventual downfall. On that battlefield in that small Pennsylvania town more men would be lost then in any battle fought in the western hemisphere. Gettysburg is the History Channel's recounting of those brutal events focusing on battle tactics, the functioning of the machinery, and the general conditions. It is fascinating to see how the weapons of the day functioned or hear about decrepit makeshift hospital conditions or just to learn if individual soldier's stories. The program does suffer though from the use of the usual History Channel format of recreating events. Still this is an interesting look at the pivotal battle in American history.
