Chancellorsville

A one-of-a-kind, two-hour documentary on the Chancellorsville Campaign of May, 1863. Large-scale combat recreations bring this titanic struggle between Joe Hooker and Robert E. Lee to life, with scenes recreated in The Wilderness of Orange County, west of Fredericksburg. Narrated by Jody Powell, this in-depth program also features expert analysis from National Park Service historians Donald Pfanz and D. Scott Hartwig, as they walk the field, and describe events in a way that draws you into the action. Highly detailed animated maps complete the picture, giving you the most comprehensive and logical presentation of this complex and important battle. The action at “2nd Fredericksburg” and the Salem Church is also included, as well as the battle’s influence and impact on the battle of Gettysburg. No one has covered this huge four-day struggle, carried out over three separate battlefields, in the same depth and detail. The story is so big that it required two hours to cover it, and that’s exactly what you get with “Chancellorsville.
