This episode opens with a dramatic account of the turning point of the war,
the Battle of Gerrysburg--the greatest ever fought in the Western
Hemisphere. For three days, 150,000 will fight to the death in the gentle
Pennsylvania countryside, culmination in Pickett's legendary change. This
extended episode then 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 is happening to his people.
