A New Birth of Freedom, an exclusive film narrated by Morgan Freeman, combines with the Cyclorama to give context and understanding to the importance of the Battle of Gettysburg within American history. The Gettysburg Museum of the American Civil War features 12 exhibit galleries that bring the stories of the battle of Gettysburg and the Civil War to life through artifact displays, interactive exhibits, films and more.
