Guns of April is a documentary from the perspective of the re-enactors
Ohio filmmaker Jim Behl has provided Civil War enthusiasts with a documentary that focuses initially on the early events of the 'War of Northern Aggression' blending history along with the men and women who keep the memory of our American past alive through re-enactments, ceremonies and milestone observations.
Viewers are treated to the comments of long-time Roundtable members who share their thoughts on the living history that they embrace so dearly.
From Ft. Sumter, to Chambersburg, to Gettysburg, Guns of April celebrates the music long associated with the American Civil War, as well as historically accurate accounts of the make-shift hospitals where the letters of the actual eyewitnesses are shared with the public. I found this documentary to be both educational and captivating.
