A Wonderful and Insightful Documentary
Edward D. Hugus | Cranberry Twp., Pennsylvania United States | 06/26/2006
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I thought "The Horses Of Gettysburg" was a Wonderful and Insightful Documentary about the care, training, and use of Horses and Mules at Gettysburg and during the Civil War. Most people are aware of the loss of animals during the war, but not the figures of actual animals used, wounded, and killed during the battles. This is a great addition to any Civil War film collection and I recommend it highly."
One of the best!

"It seems like the Civil War Minutes Series gets better with every production. The sound and picture quality have improved dramatically this time around. This new segment looks at the history of horses in warfare, the benefit of their use in the Civil War and has stories of unique tales from the Battle of Gettysburg. Focusing on the more popular stories from Gettysburg that included horse and rider(s) we get new insight as to how important these animals were.

From artillery use, transportation and fighting, we get stories of interest featuring such scenes like: The Bliss Farm, Kershaw's Attack, Farnsworth Charge, East Cavalry Field, Meade's Horse, Haskell's notes during Confederate bombardments on Day #3, aftermath casualties and many others.

I think this is probably the best production yet from the Civil War Minutes Series as there was plenty of useful information about the use of horses during this battle and in the war. I highly recommend this video."

"I really enjoyed this DVD. I love horses and Civil War history and I thought it was very good. I wish it had a little bit more about Traveller. There was nothing until the end, and he is my favorite horse from history."
Vivid history

"If you are a Civil War nut (I am), you must see this.
If you are not, you should still enjoy this collection of brief vignettes into 19th century warfare (borrowed re-enactors re-create moments of the battle at the actual Gettysburg National Park locations). They are vividly done without a lot of special effects, and effectively and authentically bring you into the conflict of 1863. The equestrian thesis is a very engaging slant, and the extra disc conversations with re-enactors are almost as enlightening as the feature itself. The screenplay would have quotation marks all over it; they worked hard (and succeeded, in my opinion) to make it as authentic as possible, quoting actual participants and interpreting the action through serious historians."
