“Sixteenth Maine at Gettysburg” is a film produced by the Maine Public Broadcasting Network highlighting the regiment’s engagement with the Confederates on July 1, 1863 at the Battle of Gettysburg 150 years ago.
In honor of the 150th anniversary of The Battle of Gettysburg, the Maine Public Broadcasting Network will present Sixteenth Maine at Gettysburg, a new documentary revealing the story of Maine’s 16th Volunteer Infantry Regiment, one of the fifteen Maine units engaged in the battle. Their exploits and sacrifice will be told using their own words, pictures of the soldiers themselves, and views, then and now, of the Gettysburg battlefield. Produced by MPBN’s Emmy Award-nominated Daniel Lambert in partnership with the Maine State Archives, Sixteenth Maine at Gettysburg will examine this epic battle and its overall place in the American Civil War – the cause, its cost, and its aftermath.
