Program: Horses of Gettysburg

Humans have relied on horses since the dawn of time, but there is no stronger bond than between a horse and rider on the battlefield. Narrated by Ronald F. Maxwell, director of the epic films "Gettysburg" and "Gods and Generals", "Horses of Gettysburg" captures the relationship between soldiers and the horses that they so desperately depended on for survival. Filmed in high definition with charging horses, battlefield panoramas and no "talking heads," this cinematic documentary tells the story of the estimated 72000 horses and mules that fought at the Battle of Gettysburg and uncovers the strategies employed to ensure that the millions of animals in service with the North and South remained healthy and well-trained for action. "Horses of Gettysburg" celebrates the honor and courage of these four legged warriors and their critical role in shaping the United States of America that we live in today. From the producer and director of "EXPO - Magic of the White City" narrated by Gene Wilder and "Gettysburg and Stories of Valor" narrated by Keith Carradine, "Horses of Gettysburg" is a special edition DVD Box Set in the CIVIL WAR MINUTES® series.
