Description by OLDIES.com:
The American Civil War is one of the most studied military conflicts in world history. There have been numerous books, films and documentaries that have looked at almost every aspect of the war, yet none have taken you directly to the battle line to see the action from the soldier's point of view. With the help of several thousand living history re-enactors, THE AMERICAN CIVIL WAR penetrates the fog of war and allows you to experience the glory and heartache of the battles that changed war forever. Through personal letters, official reports and diaries, viewers will come to understand not only the battle but also the political and personal factors that caused our nation to take up arms. The captivating period photography, the authentic Civil War-era music and the fascinating living history re-enactments bring to life this enormous struggle and allow future generations to bear witness to events that forged our nation.
This epic-length documentary about the U.S. Civil War distinguishes itself from prior productions on the same subject by taking as its central perspective the outlook of soldiers who were stationed on the front lines of battle. In so doing, the program cuts through much of the mythos surrounding the conflict itself and enables us to see the war in a fresh new way. It draws on elements including personal correspondence, diaries, archival photographs and much more. Installments include: "Rally Round the Flag," "Rebels at the Gates," "High Water Mark," "General Grant's War," and "Jubilation."
