From executive producers Tony Scott and Ridley Scott comes a special about the battle that changed the course of the Civil War and the future of the Nation.
"The world will little note, nor long remember, what we say here, but it can never forget what they did here." Abraham Lincoln's iconic Gettysburg Address frames this epic, feature-length HISTORY special, commemorating the 150th anniversary of the Civil War. GETTYSBURG looks at this battle from a visceral new perspective, that of the everyday soldiers who fought there, in a confrontation that changed the fate of our nation. Stripping away the romanticized veneer of past treatments, this special conveys new information and honors the sacrifice of those, both North and South, who fought and died there. Raw, immersive and emotional, this groundbreaking event puts viewers inside the three-day battle where over 50,000 men paid the ultimate price.
This combo pack includes the entire action-packed special in both immersive high-definition Blu-ray as well as DVD.

I bought this thinking it was another movie on Gettysburg, but it wasn’t. It’s actually a DVD special from a History Channel show that I had seen on TV before.
The show is OK, but I didn’t feel like it’s worth $7 to spbe nd my money on considering it was only an hour show. I would rather purchased a movie instead.
Graphics were subpar as well as the dramatic schenes. If anything, it felt like a low budget movie that was actually a TV documentary.
I wouldn’t purchase again if I had to do it over again.
The approach of the film was to take in different perspectives/personal views and etc while still giving a historic and knowledgeable approach,.
Just a few things to mention:
-Just like in photography, you gave pixel peepers, well you'll have historians and fans that will find the flaws for sure and just want to be negative. Just how it is. If they wanted to add every single detail and fact then this would've been a looooong DOCU
-Saw complaints about blood.. yeah its called war and take it how you want, some DOCUs wont have any, some too much.. i liked the more realistic approach.
-You can decide to watch a boring film, as with a history prof rambling on, or take a different approach like this film and enjoy it.
In all, at its price its def worth every penny.
