Brown takes us along the routes used by Lee's troops and immense wagon trains, stopping at key sites along those passages where the general established defenses that delayed or defeated advances by U.S. Army Gen. George Meade's Union forces.

Brown reveals that even though the battle of Gettysburg was a defeat of the Army of Northern Virginia, Lee's successful retreat maintained the balance of power in the eastern theater and left his army with enough forage and food to tough it out a bit longer.

With its magnificent aerial footage of the mountain passes and Potomac River crossings used by Lee, lavish period photographs, and stark reenactments, "Retreat from Gettysburg" is a not-to-be-missed exploration of the waning days of the Civil War.
