The Gettysburg Story brings America’s greatest battle alive for newcomers and experts. The film uses stunning aerial cinematography and 3D dynamic maps to give a basic understanding of the battle in an hour. It was originally broadcast nationally on Public Television. The best-selling companion Auto Tour takes visitors around the actual battlefield - dramatically telling the story at the exact place where events occurred. The Gettysburg Story was created by filmmaker Jake Boritt, based on works of historian Gabor Boritt, and narrated by actor Stephen Lang (Avatar, Gettysburg). 

"This brilliant and moving story will fascinate the first-time visitor and the history buff alike."
Doris Kearns-Goodwin, Author 

"The whole battle comes alive in telling detail and suburb overview: a living, breathing, thrilling experience of what happened. I can't recommend it enough." 
Ken Burns, Filmmaker
