Show Summary

This award-winning documentary chronicled the people and events of the bloodiest conflict in US history. The Civil War broke new ground by blending archival photographs, unique cinematography, music, narration, and a chorus of voices to animate the key figures of the time. The addition of notable experts on the subject created not only an accurate and exhaustive historical document - but also a riveting emotional journey through one of America's darkest and most pivotal times.
