70 Year Old Fighter - John Burns

We love stories.

When The History Channel contacted us recently about a new film airing Memorial Day weekend, we had to know more. Gettysburg, produced by Ridley and Tony Scott, who collectively own approximately 63% of Hollywood from successful previous ventures including Top Gun, Gladiator, American Gangster, and Black Hawk Down to name a few, is an up close and personal look at one of the most famous battles in history.

Unlike other historical accounts, Gettysburg portrays the three-day battle from a front-line, and very raw perspective. Among other turns and twists, we’ll get to know…

Rufus Dawes – The 24 year old leader of an all volunteer unit from Wisconsin, part of the legendary Iron Brigade, a workhorse of Lincoln’s army

Joe Davis – Nephew to Confederate President Jefferson Davis, whose first field command was at Gettysburg

Ridgeley Howard – A  33 year old Confederate private from Baltimore, whose grandfather fought side by side with George Washington and who now battles against his Maryland neighbors


Amos Humiston – A New York soldier, whose dead body was found with just one clue to his identity—a picture of his family, clutched in his hands.

Tune in! Monday May 30, 9pm EST / 8pm Central.

Check back here for a History Channel Trivia Contest a little later in the week. Thanks to our friends at The History Channel we’ll have some fun prizes to give away!
