Gods and Generals, the screen adaptation of Jeff Shaara's heralded best-selling novel and prequel to the acclaimed drama Gettysburg, is an epic and a sweeping portrayal of a nation divided at the start of the Civil War. Beginning in early 1861 and continuing through 1863, just prior to the Battle of Gettysburg, the film illuminates heroes from both sides of the war. The tremendous suffering and bravery of the Civil War was not confined to the battlefields. Gods and Generals brings to life not only the Civil War's legendary leaders, but also the legions of anonymous soldiers and citizens who fought passionately and courageously for their vision of freedom and unity, in a war in which more Americans lost their lives than in any other conflict in the nation's history. The film tells the story of the wives and families who were forced to assume responsability at home, often in cities under direct attack from the opposition.
