Season 2, Episode 1: "Gettysburg" (1993) Costume Drama Rewind

We're back from our summer break and kicking off our second season with "Gettysburg," the 1993 war epic, directed by Ron Maxwell and starring Jeff Daniels, Martin Sheen, Tom Berenger, Kevin Conway, and Stephen Lang. Instead of just walking you through each part of the battle, in this episode, we're here to provide some context for what happened during these three days, what the stakes were for the Union and the Confederacy, and what the result meant for the American Civil War going forward.*Despite what "Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter" may have told you, there appear to have been no actual vampires in the Battle of Gettysburg.

  1. Really enjoyed your podcast……but have to claim severe bias for Amazing Grace……was privileged to see it twice, back to back on day of US premier in Indy……..and was also in England for the premier there which followed a tour of all things Wilberforce in Hull, his birthplace. I have watched it many times and give it my highest rating!!
