Summary
This episode opens with a dramatic account of the turning point of the war: the Battle of Gettysburg--the greatest ever fought in the Western Hemisphere. For three days, 150,000 men will fight to the death in the gentle Pennsylvania countryside, culminating in Pickett's legendary charge. This extended episode goes on to chronicle the fall of Vicksburg, the New York draft riots, the first use of black troops, and the western battles at Chickamauga and Chattanooga. The episode closes with the dedication of a new Union cemetery at Gettysburg in November, where Abraham Lincoln struggles to put into words what was happening to his people.
