"The Battles For Atlanta" 145th Civil War DVD Trailer

The blurb for this reads
THE BATTLES THAT BROKE THE BACKBONE OF THE SOUTH... An impressive and epic commemoration of the 145th anniversary of the Battle of Atlanta. The story of this pivotal 1864 Campaign from Tennessee to the Sea is witnessed and told from the common soldier's point of view. Kennesaw Mountain... Cheatham's Hill... Atlanta... Kilpatrick's Raid... Jonesboro... This Campaign marked a clear escalation in the brutality and focus of General William T. Sherman's drive to crush Confederate forces, under Generals Johnston and Hood, holding the Union off in the western theater of the war. Our one-of-a-kind, high-definition re-enactment footage is the background to an epic spectacle. Featuring thousands of re-enactors, no other docu-drama or film has placed you on the battlefields of the Atlanta Campaign quite like this. From multi-award winning filmmaker Kevin R. Hershberger (Wicked Spring; Gettysburg: Darkest Days & Finest Hours), our cameras were embedded with the soldiers on the field of battle for four large-scale re-enactments between September 4 - 6, 2009; each taking place at the historic Nash Farm Battlefield in Hampton, Georgia.
