Yes that's what today is for us (yawn).
Because we watched a 366 minute movie (right, over 4 hours) until after 1 a.m. It was highly recommended by friends as background for a future trip to Gettysburg National Military Park (GNMP). And we listen to friends, right?
Yes, we should have started watching earlier in the evening. But, then again, we can sleep late on a weekday morning, which we DID.
WHAT did we see ?
Gettysburg, a 1993 film sense) written and directed by Ronalf F. Maxwell and based on the 1974 Pulitzer Prize novel, The Killer Angels, by Michael Shaara. The film depicts the Battle of Gettysburg waged for 3 days in July 1863 at the site of a theology school, in PA. It was shot at the actual location, now GNMP, and a nearby farm and deployed thousands of Civil War fans in authentically detailed costumes. From first ideas, story drafts to final editing and post production, nearly 15 years of work went into making the movie. Originally titled after the book, but retitled after test audiences thought it was about cycle gangs.
