On Sunday 25th September 2011 - The History Channel will begin showing 'Gettysburg' a new documentary type film, telling the story of the famous battle during the American Civil War. This is not the end of the Civil War, however it is the beginning of the War for the Confederates, sadly.
Ridley Scott and his brother Tony Scott - two brilliant film makers show all the horror of war.
Here is a very short introduction - For the 150th anniversary of America’s deadliest war, Ridley Scott and his brother Tony are teaming up with the History Channel to produce Gettysburg, a new feature documentary which reinvents how we look at the historic battle. In the four years of conflict between the Union and Confederate armies, over 600,000 American lives were lost. So it’s quite fitting that the Gettysburg is being described as “a visceral, terrifying experience.”
This is a must for all American Civil War enthusiasts - I will be glued to the programme. It is available now on YouTube - but I prefer to wait until it is shown on HD - well I may have a sneak preview!!
