Soldiers of Gettysburg
For three days in July 1863, two great armies clashed on the fields of southeast Pennsylvania in what would become the most pivotal battle of the American Civil War. The commanders of these forces would become household names, but the Battle of Gettysburg was not won or lost by high-ranking generals. It was decided by the more than 158,000 soldiers on the front line of the battle. These men came from different backgrounds, and all fought for different reasons. What united them, Union or Confederate, was their shared commitment and belief in their cause.
Gettysburg follows the stories of eight of these men as they put their lives on the line in a battle that would decide the ultimate fate of the United States of America.
