04:14,296 -- 00:04:18,174

NARRATOR:
In June 1863, after more

than two years of bloody conflict...

2

00:
04:18,342 -- 00:04:21,844

...the Confederate army of Northern

Virginia, Robert E. Lee commanding...

3

00:
04:22,012 -- 00:04:25,139

...slips across the Potomac

to begin the invasion of the North.

4

00:
04:25,474 -- 00:04:28,225

It is an army of 70,000 men.

5

00:
04:28,393 -- 00:04:30,519

They move slowly behind the Blue Ridge...

6

00:
04:30,687 -- 00:04:33,022

...using the mountains

to screen their movements.

7

00:
04:33,190 -- 00:04:36,192

Their objective is to draw

the Union army out into the open...

8

00:
04:36,360 -- 00:04:38,194

...where it can be destroyed.

9

00:
04:38,362 -- 00:04:42,239

Late in June, the Union army

of the Potomac, 80,000 men...

10

00:
04:42,407 -- 00:04:46,243

...turns north from Virginia to begin

the great pursuit up the narrow roads...

11

00:
04:46,411 -- 00:04:49,121

...across Maryland and into Pennsylvania.

12

00:
04:49,289 -- 00:04:53,501

General Lee knows that a letter has been

prepared by the Southern government.

13

00:
04:53,669 -- 00:04:55,544

A letter which offers peace.

14

00:
04:55,712 -- 00:04:59,924

It is to be placed on the desk

of Abraham Lincoln, resident of the U.S...

15

00:
05:00,092 -- 00:05:03,552

...the day after Lee has destroyed

the Army of the Potomac...

16

00:
05:03,720 -- 00:05:06,472

...somewhere north of Washington.

17

00:
05:27,452 -- 00:05:31,455

[EAGLE CRYING]

18

00:
06:36,021 -- 00:06:39,815

Federal cavalry. Two brigades.

19

00:
07:50,971 -- 00:07:53,055

Howdy, friend. Where you headed?

20

00:
07:53,223 -- 00:07:55,850

-General Longstreet. I must see him.

-Is that a fact?

21

00:
07:56,017 -- 00:07:59,061

I know General Lee's headquarters

are up here a little ways.

22

00:
07:59,229 -- 00:08:01,897

Wherever he is, Longstreet is nearby.

23

00:
08:04,651 -- 00:08:08,362

-Take me that way. It's urgent.

SERGEANT:
Let me put it to you like this.

24

00:
08:09,281 -- 00:08:12,741

You're not in a uniform

and you're coming through my picket line.

25

00:
08:12,909 -- 00:08:16,370

I'll take you up there,

but if nobody there knows you...

26

00:
08:16,538 -- 00:08:19,415

...I guess, unfortunately,

you'll have to be hanged.

27

00:
08:44,232 -- 00:08:46,400

[CHATTERING]

28

00:
08:49,863 -- 00:08:51,530

Sir. General, sir.

29

00:
08:52,574 -- 00:08:56,660

I'm sorry, excuse me, sir,

but Harrison is back.

30

00:
08:58,747 -- 00:09:00,289

-Harrison?

SORREL:
Yes, sir.

31

00:
09:00,457 -- 00:09:02,124

The scout, Harrison, sir.

32

00:
09:02,792 -- 00:09:05,920

I knew you'd want to know that

as soon as possible.

33

00:
09:06,087 -- 00:09:08,130

He's right outside here, sir.

34

00:
09:15,805 -- 00:09:17,181

HARRISON:

Your servant, general.

35

00:
09:18,308 -- 00:09:19,892

Didn't expect to see me, did you?

36

00:
09:20,060 -- 00:09:24,647

I paid you in gold three weeks ago.

What do you got?

37

00:
09:26,858 -- 00:09:29,109

I don't suppose you got

another one of those.

38

00:
09:29,277 -- 00:09:30,778

That good southern tobacco.

39

00:
09:30,946 -- 00:09:32,529

What do you got?

40

00:
09:32,697 -- 00:09:36,825

I got the position of the Yankee army.

They're only a few miles down the road.

41

00:
09:36,993 -- 00:09:39,536

The whole Yankee army coming this way.

Seven corps.

42

00:
09:40,163 -- 00:09:41,163

A few miles?

43

00:
09:41,331 -- 00:09:45,334

HARRISON:
Yes. Two brigades

of Yankee cavalry down that road about...

44

00:
09:45,502 -- 00:09:47,044

...two, four hours away.

45
