Posted by WMHT Web Editor on

Watch Sunday, April 12, 2015 at 4pm on WMHT TV.

Over three days in 1863, war-weary Union and Confederate soldiers met at a backwater Pennsylvania crossroads to decide the fate of the nation. Produced to commemorate its sesquicentennial, THE GETTYSBURG STORY tells the epic tale of the bloodiest battle ever fought on American soil and the greatest man-made disaster in American history. Narrated by actor Stephen Lang (Avatar, Tombstone, Gettysburg), the documentary recounts the pivotal events and intimate stories from the iconic Civil War battle immortalized in Lincoln's “Gettysburg Address.” Cutting-edge cinematography techniques reveal the grand scale of the 6,000-acre battlefield, including the legendary sites of Little Round Top, Devils Den, The Railroad Cut, Cemetery Ridge and the fields of Pickett's Charge.
