The Story of Brandy station, the largest cavalry battle ever fought on American soil.

However, only weeks before, the cavalry forces of North and South, had met in what would prove to be the largest cavalry engagement of the war, the Battle of Brandy Station. This is the dramatic story of that crucial battle, a fight which would dispel the myth of the "invincible" Confederate cavalry forever...This video features a magnificent reconstruction of the Battle of Brandy Station specially filmed in Virginia, the largest cavalry re-enactment ever staged in America. Also featuring superb dramatised "eye-witness" accounts, computer generated 3D mapping techniques plus delightful period imagery and photographs, this programme provides an unforgettable record of a vital day in the American Civil War.
