With the May 24 release of the Gettysburg and Gods and Generals Director’s Cuts less than two months away, I figured I would share with you an even better look at what the DVD sets will look like for the July 5 release of the “Limited Collector’s Edition”. Many people have asked why the May releases will only be on Blu Ray, because they only have DVD players. Rest assured, the LCE will be available in both Blu Ray and DVD format. This really looks like a fantastic set, and is something I will have to purchase along with the two regular editions which will be in “Blu Ray Book” packaging form. I would like to thank one of my readers, Chris, for sending me this picture:
As you can see, this set is going to be much more than just the films. It comes with the 32-page Time Civil War book, as previously mentioned, but also an additional book on artifacts from the war. Then there will be a map from National Geographic as well as a commemorative Abraham Lincoln Coin. The sets will be sequentially numbered to 100,000.
My plan will be to buy the two Blu Ray editions in May (just because eight years has been a long enough wait, and I don’t want to have to go another two months), then ask for the LCE for my birthday, which is ironically on July 2, the anniversary of the second day’s fighting at Gettysburg. However, I will need the DVD version of that instead, just because I plan on using this for when I start teaching, and schools have not yet been upgraded with Blu Ray technology.
