National Military Park Ranger Troy Harman takes viewers through the fields to study the action of two brigades led by Col. Wlodzmierz Krzyzanowski and Col. Alexander Schimmelfennig.  These often forgotten men and overlooked brigades were, according to Schurz's report, "being entangled intentionally so the Confederates could set them up."  This tour is led from the Union's perspective.  This original 2004 program has been re-edited to include maps from acclaimed author Bradley Gottfried's "The Maps of Gettysburg" book, as well as vintage portraits of key participants who took to the field that fateful day.

Military Park Ranger Scott Hartwig focuses on the decision made in the afternoon of July 1st to defend this ridge line by the Union Army to buy time for the rest of the troops to arrive.  it is one of the most dramatic stories of the battle.  A story of courage and heroism not just of the Union Army but also the Confederate Army who are attacking these men.  This original 1997 program program has been re-edited to include maps from acclaimed author Bradley Gottfried's "The Maps of Gettysburg" book as well as vintage portraits of key participants who took to the field that day.

3.  Oak Ridge (138 min.)

After they witnessed their commander snap his sword in two in defiance of his captors, the men of the 16th Maine felt their faces burn at the thought of surrendering their flag to the Confederates.  National Park Service Ranger Eric Campbell describes how these fighting men from the Union Army performed an act of inspired solidarity, which, according to a survivor, "may convey to this generation some of the spirit animating the volunteers who replied to Lee's invasion of 1863."  This original 2009 program has been re-edited to include maps from acclaimed author Bradley Gottfied's "The Maps of Gettysburg" book as well as vintage portraits of key participants who took to the field that fateful day.  

4. Union 1st Corps on Seminary Ridge (122 min.)
