Gettysburg Battle DVD

(4 out of 5 stars)
"As far as a historical view of the battle of Gettysburg, this DVD is sufficiently good to warrant purchase if it is at a REAL good price! But, it is NOT a movie, and as such, the action is more "spotty" than a movie would be. And that is the only reason I wouldn't give it 5-stars! Historically accurate, but mildly "theatrical," as opposed to more realistic. Good, nonetheless."
A four star review needs to be answered

"One star is generous, and that only because the DVD was cheap--they would cut to reenactors doing their lanquid, Sunday-picnic interpretations of a Civil War battle. No real battle analysis and no terrain maps or troop dispositions. No sense of the battle, how it was engaged, how it developed and how it earned Lincoln's 256 words. Unless you were an extra, and vanity compels you to own this product, save your $."
