"   I agree that the full story needs to be  told, and it appears to me 
that the NPS is well on the way 
to doing  this at Gettysburg.  "


I have been to Gettysburg 3 times and hope to visit again soon, but I have  
never seen the VC presentation.
How much of it discusses slavery under the  United States ?

Actually, not that much, in my opinion.  It's talked about in the  
beginning of the film, and there are a few artifacts in the museum.  Then  again, 
Lincoln talked about "a new birth of freedom" in his address, so when Sam  
Waterston is reciting it, then I guess they're discussing it again.
