Summary, etc.:
"Shot primarily on the original battlefield in Kentucky, this DVD reflects the true "high tide" of the Confederacy. The Battle of Perryville played a key role in the South's best chance to win its independence during the war. With detailed maps, stunning cinematography, beautiful images from the Perryville region, and realism created by embedding cameramen in the ranks of thousands of Blue and Gray reenactors, this documentary is a must-have for every Civil War buff's library."--Container cover.
