History Buffs: The Gettysburg Story PBS Documentary



Narrated by Stephen Lang. It premieres this fall on your local PBS station and features some really awesome cinematography that really gives a unique and original perspective of the battlefield. Here's a clip from the documentary:

Very cool. Just went for the 150th anniversary a few months back with my cousin and her boyfriend. He is a huge history buff and actually does the reenactments. Long story short, he took me around the entire battlefield and gave me the rundown on pretty much everything down to the total amount of soldiers in each unit. shite was awesome.

The History Channel has 2 shows about it also. It repeats about every 3 months. One is old and uses a lot of book pictures, the other is newer and use teachers/professors giving audio instructions and guidance. Pretty good. I'll watch the new one of yours also. Look forward to it.

Me too - I went there one morning as I was passing thru and the wife needed to do some laundry.

Went out before sunrise and the place was covered in fog. I was the only one around. As the fog lifted with the sunrise, I had goosebumps.

It was awesome feeling.

Need to go back when I can spend more time.

I wish they would do these types of documentaries on other battles. It seems they only ever cover Gettysburg. I would love to see some of the in-depth stuff on other major battles.

Ain't that the truth. shite I'll bet about 5% of that broadcast was subsidized by tax dollars.
