Based on Michael Shaara's acclaimed book "The Killer Angels," the epic Civil War drama "Gettysburg" chronicles the bloody battle that took place in Pennsylvania in July of 1863 and would prove to be a turning point in the war. Over the course of a grueling three-day period, Union and Confederate forces face each other in a number of brutal engagements that would result in the loss of 53,000 lives. Tom Berenger, Martin Sheen, Stephen Lang, Jeff Daniels, and Richard Jordan star. Then, stunning battle sequences and amazing historical detail highlight the prequel "Gods and Generals," which focuses on such Civil War military leaders as the South's Robert E. Lee (Robert Duvall) and Stonewall Jackson (Stephen Lang) and the Union's Josh Chamberlain (Jeff Daniels). Following these commanders' actions from 1861 to 1863, the film faithfully depicts the pivotal early battles of Manassas, Fredericksburg, and Chancellorsville. With Mira Sorvino, C.
