''Lincoln and Lee at Antietam - The Cost of Freedom'' to Air on Television Memorial Day Weekend.

PITTSBURGH -- Inecom Entertainment Company is pleased to announce that "Lincoln and Lee at Antietam - The Cost of Freedom" will air nationally on the PBS HD Channel during the weekend when Americans celebrate Memorial Day, a national holiday honoring those who died in service to our country. Distributed nationwide since its release in January 2006, the award-winning "Lincoln and Lee at Antietam - The Cost of Freedom" DVD is available at video stores, Internet retailers, educational and institutional distributors and large retail chains such as Best Buy, Borders and select Barnes & Noble stores nationwide.

Narrated by Ronald F. Maxwell (director of "Gettysburg" and "Gods and Generals") and written, directed and produced by multiple-award winner Robert Child ("Gettysburg: Three Days of Destiny" and "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 during the bloodiest day in American History.

Nearly twice as many Americans died at the Battle of Antietam 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 D-Day were a quarter of those at Antietam.

"Lincoln and Lee at Antietam - The Cost of Freedom" is presented by Penn State Public Broadcasting (PSPB) and distributed by American Public Television (APT). Local stations that offer digital broadcast services will broadcast the film in high-definition format on the following May dates (check local listings):

May 28, 2006 7:00 pm (EDT)

May 29, 2006 4:00 pm, 8:00 pm and 11:00 pm (EDT)
