Terrific Documentary on Various People, Places, Battles and Phases of the Civil War!
5 July 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

In my view, this series of documentaries is one of the finest, touching and most entertaining portrayals of the various stories of the Civil War. Through often use of Historic photographs, maps, imagery and slow motion video of current Civil War era reenactors, the series brings the subject to life for the viewer. Frequent interviews with park rangers, respected Historians (like Shelby Foote, Gary Gallagher and Brian Pohanka) and descendants of survivors add to the well-rounded perspective on the war, its causes, people and its effects on America even today. Danny Glover hosts many of the initial documentaries and does a superb job. The series is appealing, both to the novice or the serious student of the subject. The episode on Gettysburg Civilians is a must see for anyone who ever wanted to understand the effects of an armed conflict upon a civilian population. An absolute Gem!
