Horses of Gettysburg to Air on Public Television

Pittsburgh, PA - February 2, 2007 - Inecom Entertainment Company announced today that its film Horses of Gettysburg will be distributed to public television stations nationwide by American Public Television (APT). Beginning in June 2007, the special will air in both standard and high definition formats on up to 243 stations reaching 84% of households in the United States (check local listings for dates/times in your area). Narrated by Ronald F. Maxwell, director of Gettysburg and Gods and Generals, the feature documentary is presented by Penn State Public Broadcasting (PSPB).

Filmed in high-definition with charging horses, period photographs and battlefield panoramas with no "talking heads," this cinematic documentary tells the story of the estimated 72,000 horses and mules that fought at the Battle of Gettysburg and uncovers the strategies employed to ensure that the millions of animals in service with the North and South remained healthy and well-trained for action.

Like popular Kentucky Derby winner Barbaro who was recently euthanized after a long battle with injury, the horses and mules of the Civil War were beloved companions to those who cared for them. Horses of Gettysburg captures the relationship between soldiers and their horses celebrating the forgotten heroes of the Civil War and their critical role in shaping the United States of America that we live in today.

Directed by Mark Bussler, producer and director of World War 1 - American Legacy narrated by David Carradine, EXPO - Magic of the White City narrated by Gene Wilder and Gettysburg and Stories of Valor narrated by Keith Carradine, Horses of Gettysburg is also available as a special edition 2 DVD Box Set at video stores, Internet retailers, educational and institutional distributors and large retail chains worldwide.
