1862 Battle of Antietam Grabbing Media Attention

PITTSBURGH, PA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- April 7, 2006 -- Inecom Entertainment Company DVD "Lincoln and Lee at Antietam - The Cost of Freedom" has been joined by The History Channel's "Antietam" as cinematic depictions of the Battle of Antietam. The History Channel is reportedly running its program during the week-long series "10 Days that Unexpectedly Changed America" beginning Sunday April 9, 2006. The Battle of Antietam altered our country in two ways: first, it is recognized by historians as the turning point in the Civil War; secondly, September 17, 1862 remains the single bloodiest day in American history.

"Lincoln and Lee at Antietam - The Cost of Freedom" is narrated by Ronald F. Maxwell (director of "Gettysburg" and "Gods and Generals") and was written, directed and produced by multiple-award winner Robert Child ("Gettysburg: Three Days of Destiny" and "Gettysburg: The Boys in Blue and Gray"). This 90-minute feature documentary vividly brings to life the story of America's fight for freedom in a battle that changed the course of the Civil War.

Scholars featured in "Lincoln and Lee at Antietam - The Cost of Freedom" include Pulitzer Prize winning author James M. McPherson ("Battle Cry of Freedom" and "Crossroads of Freedom: Antietam"); Allen C. Guelzo, National Society of the Daughters of the American Revolution Medal of Honor recipient, a recent nominee by President George W. Bush to the National Council on the Humanities and two-time Lincoln Prize winner; and Stanley Wernz, who was featured in Time magazine (July 4, 2005) and is the current president of the Association of Lincoln Presenters.

Virginia Goebel, Inecom Vice President for Sales and Marketing says, "We are glad to see another program like The History Channel's 'Antietam' offered to audiences. The Battle of Antietam was a pivotal day in American History and should be recognized as such."
