Gettysburg (1993)

Directed by Ronald Maxwell

Length: 271 minutes

Robert Gould Shaw leads the US Civil War's first all-black volunteer company, fighting prejudices of both his own Union army and the Confederates. This excellent film is based on one of the best war novels ever written, The Killer Angels by Michael Shaara. Well-staged battle scenes were actually filmed at Gettysburg lending the film greater authenticity. Gettysburg offers multifaceted character development and a superb performance by Jeff Daniels. With great music and an excellent screenplay, this movie is a must-see.
