    Default Civil War: The Untold Story

    Anybody know anything about this? Looks pretty decent. And graphic. The tralier was posted on the Civil War Trust Facebook page. Can't find a website for it though. Looks to be coming out next year sometime.

    I'm looking forward to it as well. Looks like most of the Shiloh footage shown is from the Great Divide company's new film for the Shiloh National Battlefield Park (the "Shiloh: Fiery Trial" that is referred to). I haven't had the opportunity to view what they produced for Kennesaw Mountain or Chickamauga (if those visitor center films are even out yet), but the footage in this trailer looks excellent. Looks like good attention to detail. I do hope "Colonel Dan" McCook recites "Horatius at the Bridge" a little more solemnly in the final, though.

    It is from Great Divide. It's actually a compilation of all three recent NPS films they filmed. Shiloh, Chickamagua / Chattanooga campaigns, and Kennesaw/ march thru Georgia etc.. I worked as an actor for the latter two. There was alot of attention to authenticity, which was great, as well as for the Chatt./ Chcik/ film, we filmed on actual locations. Most of the Kennesaw was was filmed on the Resaca battlefield.Some fellas just didn't fit the build though.The premiere for the Chattanoga film was held here, in Chattanooga, a few months ago, and it's showing now at the visitor center at Chickamagua. The Kennesaw film will debut later this year. As for the " Col. Dan McCook " scene it was performed by a pard Aron Price, I was involved in another scene at the time and can't vouch for the final product.

    Cheers,

    All historical accounts point to McCook reciting it VERY Matter-of-Factly and bold almost as a reminder to himself, just before he gave the orders to move forward
    Granted, when you "hollywood" something it will rarely remain 100% consistent to form, and McCook was not actually facing his men when it was recited on June 27th, 1864
    but for what the filming was attempting to accomplish as a scene setter and a climax, I think it worked out quite well.


    Of course, I am a bit biased.
