The Pulitzer Prize-winning novel The Killer Angels by Michael Shaara becomes this sprawling historical epic. As in Shaara's novel, director Ronald Maxwell focuses on a handful of major players to dramatize the events of July 1863, when the armies of the Union and Confederacy clash at the small Pennsylvania town of the title. Among them are Martin Sheen as General Robert E. Lee, who disagrees with his top advisor, General James Longstreet (Tom Berenger) over battle strategy, and Jeff Daniels as Colonel Joshua Lawrence Chamberlain, a college professor whose unorthodox techniques save the day (and possibly the war) for his beleaguered army. Other cast standouts include Richard Jordan in his final film appearance as the ill-fated General Lewis Armistead, and cameo roles for Civil War buff Ken Burns and media mogul producer Ted Turner. Filmed on-location at Gettysburg National Military Park, Gettysburg was shot as a television miniseries for Turner's TNT cable channel, but earned a limited theatrical release. Karl Williams, Rovi

its amazing that americans know so little about the civil war,expecially aftrican-americans to whom this war means so much. july 4, 1776 is not our independence day, april 9, 1865 is our independence day. the public schools are doing an amazingly poor job in getting this info to the kids. this video should be shown in every school once a year. there is a movie called "csa-confederate states of america", which describes the aftermath of our nation had the south had won the war. black people would still be slaves. i visited gettysburg and i was the only black person there. this lack of knowledge and understanding of history is a major reason black people experience so many social difficulties today. we cannot make correct choices with incomplete and inaccurate information. the situation is changing, but too slowly.
