| Low Budget on an Epic Scale!!
What an accomplishment by Lion Heart Film Works for their portrayal of the Battle of Monocacy....Mr. Hershberger and company deliver the goods to all Civil War buffs who see the value in and appreciate ATTENTION TO DETAIL in regards to the tactics of the day and the brave men and women involved.

For those who haven't already, I would purchase the 2-disc DVD in order to gain a great insight into the making of the film and some of the best reenactment footage around!! Director Kevin Hershberger and writer/historian John Pagano also provide a feature-length commentary which, in my opinion, acts as an invaluable tool for aspiring indie filmmakers of this genre. Truly inspiring!! Fans of on the look out for more stuff from these guys!
