This series is very well done and is a great value for the price. Each segment includes interviews, pictures and some well done reenactments. The segments tell about some of the lesser known people and moments at Gettysburg, and include programs on Jennie Wade, Joshua Chamberlain, Tillie Pierce, John Buford, and many others who engaged in the battle from both sides. The last disc includes a full segment on each of the three days. Highly recommended!

Outstanding coverage of the battle of Gettysburg, from various commanders (North & South), civilians & heroes, as well as a day-by-day analysis of each of the 3 days of the battle. This 12-hr set has it all - an excellent addition to your Civil War library. Highly recommended.

I am a lifelong student of the Civil War and have visited Gettysburg battlefield numerous times in order to get a full understanding of what could be described as one of the three most significant battles of that conflict. While a widely known subject it is also one of the most confusing and least understood battles until recent research and writings have shed more light on the subject. Whether you are an newbie or a hardcore buff this is the work well worth watching. I highly recommend this work for any and all.

Thought I had every worthwhile Civil War video and bought this on a whim.
GOOD DECISION!

This production really gives you a more defined view of the battle of Gettysburg.
The round table discussion has only one flaw; its too short. I could listen to these great Civil War historians talk for hours.

I just wish there were a lot more videos of this quality.

To the producers... Great Work guys!

For an upcoming Boy Scout trip to Gettysburg, I wanted my 11-year-old son to have a slightly better understanding of the battle so that he would have a greater appreciation for the site. Hence our purchase of this DVD.

Disc #3, of this three disk set, covers the battle, itself, and is a thoroughly engrossing documentary of the battle with, what appears to me, very little editorialization or over-dramatization. None the less, it still manages to entertain young and old alike. As such, it fits the bill, so to speak, for what I was looking for -- a documentary that entertains and silently educates.

I'll update further after our trip; but for now, 5 stars.

What a great find! This wonderful series will please both those new to the subject of Gettysburg, as well as those who have an advanced knowledge already. Interesting and engaging segments about civilians Jenny Wade and Tillie Pierce, and those engaged in the battles Joshua Chamberlain, John Buford, and Robert E. Lee. Another disc covers the three days of battles on July 1st-3rd. Historians Round Table is an added nice touch too. Whether you are planning on visiting Gettysburg, have already been there, or just interested in knowing more about what has been noted as the turning point of the American Civil War, this series will not disappoint. Great production at a good price.
