Being a reenactor, covering a battle in detail in under two hours is nearly impossible. Naturally I would like to see more. I did enjoy the political views shown on both sides be it Union or Confederate. It showcased the importance of how crucial this conflict was to each party. It presented the facts about what could be gained and lost for both armies and governments that I liked.
For a veteran reenactor or student of the battle of Antietam, a majority of this presentation is fairly basic and might be too standard although McPherson's explanation about why Antietam was politically important for Lincoln is something most people could learn about in this great presentation.
This film includes re-enactments, original photos, maps and narration about Antiedam and how it was fought. Seeing the re-enactments, helps to bring this war into reality. The film has an ending that will give you a better understanding as to how many lives were lost. (without giving away how) The ending really, really touched me. I'm very fortunate that my ancestors returned from the Civil War.
Anyone who loves US History should take the time to watch this film.
