      Wow. All that and they managed to leave McClellan's name completely out
      of it!



      I think I can guess what the documentary will cover. Lee, with complete
      command of the situation and with psychic abilities to know what his
      cowardly opponent will do, masterfully conducts his campaign but is
      foiled by the loss of SO 191. Despite being outnumbered nearly 350 to
      1, he manhandles his Union counterpart who is afraid to fight. Lincoln,
      the master politician, turns Lee's crushing victory into defeat by
      issuing the EP. Then he jettisons his traitorous general and continues
      his search for the perfect commander. Yadda yadda yadda.

      Ronald F. Maxwell Narrates and Provides a 25-Minute On-Screen Interview
      in New "Lincoln and Lee at Antietam" DVD About the Single Bloodiest Day
      in American History Civil War Battle Documentary Release Set for a
      Pre-Black History Month Kick-Off of January 31, 2006

      NORTH HOLLYWOOD, CA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- 12/02/2005 -- Ronald F.
      Maxwell, director of epic Civil War films "Gettysburg" and "Gods and
      Generals," narrates the new Civil War documentary, "Lincoln and Lee at
      Antietam - The Cost of Freedom," and provides a 25-minute on-screen
      interview on the DVD.

      "The Civil War is our war," said Maxwell. "It's up close and personal.
      It's the war that divided families, towns, communities. As the classic
      saying goes, 'it's the war between brothers.' The biggest killing field
      of the war in a single day was the Battle at Antietam, the first
      invasion into the North."

      Written, directed and produced by multiple-award winner Robert Child
      ("Gettysburg: Three Days of Destiny," "Gettysburg: The Boys in Blue and
      Gray"), "Lincoln and Lee at Antietam - The Cost of Freedom"
      vividly brings to life the story of America's fight for freedom in a
      battle that changed the course of the Civil War.

      "'Lincoln and Lee at Antietam - The Cost of Freedom' began as a follow
      up to my earlier Civil War program for PBS, 'Gettysburg: The Boys in
      Blue & Gray,'" said Child. "The battle of Antietam seemed to be such a
      mystery and much overshadowed by Gettysburg. Through my research and
      subsequent scripting of the film, not only did I discover that Antietam
      is as pivotal a Civil War battle as Gettysburg, but also as important in
      how it indelibly altered the course of American history."

      With a running time of 90 minutes, the DVD will be available for
      purchase nationally in retail stores on January 31, kicking off Black
      History Month (February), at a suggested retail price of $24.95. The
      prebook date is January 3, 2006.

      It's September 17, 1862, and President Abraham Lincoln needs a victory
      in order to issue the Emancipation Proclamation, which remains today one
      of the most socially important documents in American history, shaping
      black history, as well as our nation as a whole. But General Robert E.
      Lee has other plans -- invade the North. When Lee's strategy, known as
      Special Order 191, falls into the hands of the Union Army, the result is
      the single bloodiest day in American history at the Battle of Antietam
      in Sharpsburg, Maryland.

      Nearly twice as many Americans died on that single day than had fallen
      in the American Revolution, the War of 1812, the Mexican War and the
      Spanish-American War combined. In striking comparison, American losses
      on the bloodiest day of World War II, D-Day, were a quarter of those at
      Antietam. If not for this turn of events, we would not be the nation we
      are today.

      "There is always a cost to freedom. In the case of the Civil War, the
      price was high, but the viability of the concept of the United States as
      one Nation in which all persons could live free equally was firmly
      established once and for all. Citizens, however, should keep this cost
      in mind if ever they contemplate actions which would result in giving up
      this freedom as the day would come when they would want it back,"
      said Michael Bussler, president of Inecom Entertainment Company.

      Through first person accounts, an original music score from composers
      Steve Heitzeg and Nicholas Palmer and scarce Antietam commemorative
      battle footage from the 125th, 135th and 140th Antietam Reenactments,
      "Lincoln and Lee at Antietam - The Cost of Freedom" tells the tale of
      the 14-hour epic Battle at Antietam, and features commentaries from
      renowned historians such as:

      -- James M. McPherson, Princeton University, Pulitzer Prize winning
      author of "Battle Cry of Freedom" and "Crossroads of Freedom:
      Antietam"
      -- Allen C. Guelzo, Gettysburg College, America's only repeat winner of
      the Lincoln Prize; Nominated by President George W. Bush to the
      National
      Council on the Humanities
      -- Dennis E. Frye, National Park Service Historian at Harpers Ferry,
      author of "Antietam Revealed" and associate producer of "Gods and
      Generals"
      -- Paul V. Chiles, National Park Service Historian at Antietam National
      Park
      -- Patrick Falci, Actor/Performing Historian portrays General Ambrose
      Powell Hill at Antietam


      The film also features Stanley Wernz as Abraham Lincoln. Wernz was
      featured in Time Magazine (July 4, 2005) and is currently the president
      of the Association of Lincoln Presenters.

      Presented in a colorful 16 x 9 Anamorphic Widescreen transfer with Dolby
      Digital 2.0 sound, "Lincoln and Lee at Antietam - The Cost of Freedom"
      is closed-captioned with English subtitles and boasts these additional
      special features:

      -- 25-Minute On-Screen Interview with Ronald F. Maxwell
      -- Feature-Length Commentary Track with Robert Child and Ronald F.

      -- Original Music Score from composers, Steve Heitzeg and Nicholas
      Palmer

      - The Cost of Freedom" is the newest DVD release from Inecom
      Entertainment Company, following the successful "EXPO - Magic of the

      World's Fair. Since its release on September 13, 2005, "EXPO - Magic of
      the White City" has been one of Amazon.com's top-selling independently

      About Ronald F. Maxwell --

      Narrator Ronald F. Maxwell began his love affair with theater, film and
      television as a student at Clifton High School in New Jersey, where he
      showed natural talent on both sides of the camera. Upon graduating from
      NYU, Maxwell worked as Charleston Heston's personal assistant in
      Heston's directorial debut, "Antony and Cleopatra," then went on to work
      as an associate producer and subsequently producer for the EmmyR and
      Peabody Award-winning series, "Theatre in America" at
      WNET-13 in New York City.

      In 1978, Maxwell produced and directed Sissy Spacek, William Hurt, Sally
      Kellerman and Howard da Dilva in "Verna: USO Girl," for which he
      received an EmmyR nomination for Best Director. "Little Darlings," the
      first theatrical film that Maxwell directed, opened at #1 on Variety
      Magazine's Top Hundred Grossing Films and has since become a classic of
      the genre. Subsequently, he directed "The Night the Lights Went Out in
      Georgia," "Kidco," "Parent Trap II," "In the Land of the Poets" -- a
      feature-length documentary on the Nicaraguan Civil War -- and the
      landmark film "Gettysburg," which has been hailed as one of the greatest
      war movies in the history of film. Maxwell then produced, wrote and
      directed the prequel to "Gettysburg, Gods and Generals."
      Released in theaters in February 2003 and to the home video market on
      July 15, 2003, "Gods and Generals" was recognized as the #1 selling
      video in America, with over 600,000 sales in its first week.
      Currently, Maxwell is in pre-production on "Joan of Arc: Virgin Warrior"
      and in long-range preparations on "Last Full Measure," the final part of
      his Civil War Trilogy.

      About Robert Child --

      Director Robert Child is a multi-award winning, twenty-year television
      veteran, who began writing and directing independent productions in
      2001. Of the 23 filmmaking awards he has won in the last two years, six
      were for outstanding directorial achievement. At the spring 2004 New
      York International Independent Film & Video Festival, Child won both the
      Best Director and Best Historical Program awards. This topped a year in
      which he was awarded his second consecutive Platinum Remi Award for Best
      Historical Program at the Worldfest Houston Film Festival for
      "Gettysburg: Three Days of Destiny." The festival is noted for handing
      Steven Spielberg and Ridley Scott their first filmmaking awards.

      In early November 2004, Child was signed by veteran Canadian producer
      Dick Nielsen to direct and co-produce Nielsen's forthcoming Canadian
      theatrical release, "Hill 195." The project, which begins filming in
      Canada in 2006, is a multi-million dollar World War II era
      action-feature, which showcases the heroic actions of a single Canadian
      regiment just weeks after D-Day. Recently, Child completed two
      commissioned story treatments, "Hollywood Dream Car Designer:
      George Barris," about the legendary Hollywood film car customizer who
      created the original Batmobile among other iconic TV and movie vehicles;
      and "The Paul Winchell Story," a biography of perhaps the world's finest
      ventriloquist, whose characters "Jerry Mahoney" and "Knucklehead" became
      household names. Winchell also served as the voice of "Tigger" for all
      of Disney's "Winnie the Pooh" films and TV series winning a Grammy award
      for the best children's recording, "The Most Wonderful Things about
      Tiggers," in 1974. Winchell is also the original patent holder for the
      first artificial heart.

        in American History Civil War Battle Documentary Release Set for a
        Pre-Black History Month Kick-Off of January 31, 2006

        NORTH HOLLYWOOD, CA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- 12/02/2005 -- Ronald F.
        Maxwell, director of epic Civil War films "Gettysburg" and "Gods and
        Generals," narrates the new Civil War documentary, "Lincoln and Lee at
        Antietam - The Cost of Freedom," and provides a 25-minute on-screen

        NYU, Maxwell worked as Charleston Heston's personal assistant in
        Heston's directorial debut, "Antony and Cleopatra," then went on to work
        as an associate producer and subsequently producer for the EmmyR and
        Peabody Award-winning series, "Theatre in America" at
        WNET-13 in New York City.

        In 1978, Maxwell produced and directed Sissy Spacek, William Hurt, Sally
        Kellerman and Howard da Dilva in "Verna: USO Girl," for which he
        received an EmmyR nomination for Best Director. "Little Darlings," the
        first theatrical film that Maxwell directed, opened at #1 on Variety
        Magazine's Top Hundred Grossing Films and has since become a classic of
        the genre. Subsequently, he directed "The Night the Lights Went Out in
        Georgia," "Kidco," "Parent Trap II," "In the Land of the Poets" -- a
        feature-length documentary on the Nicaraguan Civil War -- and the
        landmark film "Gettysburg," which has been hailed as one of the greatest
        war movies in the history of film. Maxwell then produced, wrote and
        directed the prequel to "Gettysburg, Gods and Generals."
        Released in theaters in February 2003 and to the home video market on
        July 15, 2003, "Gods and Generals" was recognized as the #1 selling
        video in America, with over 600,000 sales in its first week.
        Currently, Maxwell is in pre-production on "Joan of Arc: Virgin Warrior"
        and in long-range preparations on "Last Full Measure," the final part of
        his Civil War Trilogy.

        About Robert Child --

        Director Robert Child is a multi-award winning, twenty-year television
        veteran, who began writing and directing independent productions in
        2001. Of the 23 filmmaking awards he has won in the last two years, six
        were for outstanding directorial achievement. At the spring 2004 New
        York International Independent Film & Video Festival, Child won both the
        Best Director and Best Historical Program awards. This topped a year in
        which he was awarded his second consecutive Platinum Remi Award for Best
        Historical Program at the Worldfest Houston Film Festival for
        "Gettysburg: Three Days of Destiny." The festival is noted for handing
        Steven Spielberg and Ridley Scott their first filmmaking awards.

        In early November 2004, Child was signed by veteran Canadian producer
        Dick Nielsen to direct and co-produce Nielsen's forthcoming Canadian
        theatrical release, "Hill 195." The project, which begins filming in
        Canada in 2006, is a multi-million dollar World War II era
        action-feature, which showcases the heroic actions of a single Canadian
        regiment just weeks after D-Day. Recently, Child completed two
        commissioned story treatments, "Hollywood Dream Car Designer:
        George Barris," about the legendary Hollywood film car customizer who
        created the original Batmobile among other iconic TV and movie vehicles;
        and "The Paul Winchell Story," a biography of perhaps the world's finest
        ventriloquist, whose characters "Jerry Mahoney" and "Knucklehead" became
        household names. Winchell also served as the voice of "Tigger" for all
        of Disney's "Winnie the Pooh" films and TV series winning a Grammy award
        for the best children's recording, "The Most Wonderful Things about
        Tiggers," in 1974. Winchell is also the original patent holder for the
        first artificial heart.

                    Some parts are duller than others. It's usually a good idea to skip
                    11/61 through 11/62. Things pick up after that.

                    In OTHER news, as I continue with "Team of Rivals," I was thinking last
                    night that Seward gets the nomination...Seward wins....and then
                    President Seward lets Sumter go because he's maintaining federal
                    authority at Pickens....and when northern public opinion gets too much
                    for him to bear by the end of summer, he starts wars with Mexico,
                    England, and France.

                    Thank God for Aberrhim Lincoln.

                    But that has little to do with Antietam, doesn't it?

                    Yep, they all tell the same story. I wonder why there are so many of
                    them.
