Synopsis

• A classic in the making: Seen the Glory re-creates the Civil War experience as vividly as the classic novel The Killer Angels . The soldiers of the storied 20th Massachusetts regiment, the sullen Southerners they march past, the hopeful freedmen and worried slaves, the terrified residents of Gettysburg, the battle-hardened Confederate soldiers are all rendered with brilliant realism and historical accuracy.

• Brilliant characters: Raised by their abolitionist father on Martha’s Vineyard, eighteen-year-old Luke and sixteen-year-old Thomas Chandler volunteer for the Union. They join the Army of the Potomac in Virginia and take part in the long march north in June, 1863, to intercept General Lee. Luke writes home to Rose, their black Cape Verdean housekeeper, with whom he shares a secret that Thomas discovers on the eve of the Battle of Gettysburg. The truth enrages Thomas and causes a rift between the brothers. When the battle is over, only one will survive.
