On NOW: Gettysburg the Speech that Saved America - on the Military Channel

I am assuming it's based on the Wills book.


Edit: to fix typo... :blush:

2. Looks like they are using CGI to create Lincoln's face on an actor's body
instead of just using ordinary makeup and someone who looks somewhat like Lincoln.

First time I've seen that done!

4. Not a bad little special program...
Given a relatively limited budget, not a bad little program... beats the crap out of the reality TV alternative.

5. And the next show is about Pickett's Charge....
thanks a lot! Now I'm stuck on the military channel. ;-) I guess because of my ancestors and the stories I've been told, always been fascinated w/Gettysburg and spent time there as a kid.
