|Gr 9 Up--Academy Award nominee Sir Ridley Scott ("Gladiator") and his brother Tony Scott ("Top Gun") joined their talents to produce this documentary about the battle many historians consider to be the turning point of the Civil War. A male narrator chronicles the three-day battle at Gettysburg by focusing on the lives of eight men who fought there. Confederates and Federals, ordinary men, fighting for their principles and for their homelands, congregated at the small Pennsylvania town in what became the largest battle fought in the western hemisphere. The scale of death and suffering was immeasurable and many scenes in this film are violent and extremely bloody. Tight shots and close-ups put viewers right on location with the soldiers. Visual sidebars discuss a variety of topics, including weaponry and battlefield surgery and the use of amputation. Maps show troop movements. The narrative text cites slavery as the cause of the Civil War and points out that it was a very profitable business with a value of $3.5 billion at the outset of the war. Robert E. Lee lost a third of his army at Gettysburg. Although Union commander Meade did not pursue Lee's army as it retreated South, Gettysburg was a pivotal event. This film can be utilized by various classes across the curriculum including history classes to enhance textbook and primary source research or literature classes after reading classics such as The Red Badge of Courage.--"Patricia Ann Owens, Illinois Eastern Community Colleges, Mt.
