Amid the 150th anniversary of the Civil War and a heated national debate about the Confederate flag, “Hallowed Ground” explores the town of Gettysburg, Pennsylvania—site of the bloodiest battle ever fought in the Western Hemisphere and a place that continues to stir up passion, obsession, and fighting spirits. We follow a cast of characters—from a disillusioned Abe Lincoln impersonator to the son of a great 20th-century architect—who are sucked into this mythic locale, which is equal parts sacred shrine and carnivalesque tourist mecca. “Hallowed Ground” breaks with the tradition of how the Civil War has been handled in documentary (historian talking heads, luscious battlefield cinematography, intoning narration) by exploring how private citizens—with competing, and often eccentric, points of view—embody America’s public memory. “Is the Civil War really over?” is the provocative question one tourist in the film poses. “Hallowed Ground” teases out surprising answers to this question. The result is an up-close, often bittersweet look at how Americans—famously amnesiac about their history—remember, market, and argue about their past.
