  • Episode Description
  • Andy and Vince are Civil War buffs who spend their weekends re-enacting battles from the historic conflict with others of similar persuasion. On this weekend, they're in Gettysburg for a giant recreation of the war's bloodiest battle when a photographer, Prentice asks to take their picture with his ancient tin-type camera. But when the shutter clicks, Andy and Vince find themselves transported back to the Confederate camp of Col. Angus Devine on the eve of the infamous 1863 battle. Prentice, who joins them in the past, explains that he has sent them back as a grand experiment, to see if history can in fact be changed, proving destiny is not final.moreless

    • [Closing Narration] Control Voice: Despite everything we do, we may never free ourselves from the bonds of fate.

    • [Opening Narration] Control Voice: It is said that great conflicts are not settled by words but by iron and blood. But what if we could revisit those decisions? Would we still surrender to violence?

    Notes (2)

    • Alex Diakun plays the role of Nicholas Prentice in three episodes: "Time to Time" (7x15), "Tribunal" (5x12) and "Gettysburg" (6x17).

    • This marks Todd Talbot's return to acting. He quit acting after the end of the teen series "Fifteen" on Nickelodeon.

    Trivia (1)

    • Geographical Error: Colonel Devine says to his men that if they win the battle of Gettysburg they will "march through the Shenandoah Valley to the steps of the Capitol". That would be impossible, since the Shenandoah Valley lies to the south-west of Gettysburg and would take them away from Washington. Actually, the historical battle of Gettysburg was preceded by the passing through the Shenandoah Valley in May 1863, almost two months before Gettysburg.
