From artillery use, transportation and fighting, we get stories of interest featuring such scenes like: The Bliss Farm, Kershaw's Attack, Farnsworth Charge, East Cavalry Field, Meade's Horse, Haskell's notes during Confederate bombardments on Day #3, aftermath casualties and many others.
I think this is probably the best production yet from the Civil War Minutes Series as there was plenty of useful information about the use of horses during this battle and in the war. I highly recommend this video.
If you are not, you should still enjoy this collection of brief vignettes into 19th century warfare (borrowed re-enactors re-create moments of the battle at the actual Gettysburg National Park locations). They are vividly done without a lot of special effects, and effectively and authentically bring you into the conflict of 1863. The equestrian thesis is a very engaging slant, and the extra disc conversations with re-enactors are almost as enlightening as the feature itself. The screenplay would have quotation marks all over it; they worked hard (and succeeded, in my opinion) to make it as authentic as possible, quoting actual participants and interpreting the action through serious historians.
