For someone like myself who knows little about the war between the States this was an informative and fairly easy- to-follow evocation of the horror of civil war and of this battle in particular. The dramatised sequences look very authentic and the use of aerial photography, maps etc is effective. My only gripe is the occasional exercise in sentimentality: two individuals die alone, yet their dying words are recited to us. Otherwise, great stuff.
