The definitive Civil War documentary,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Ken Burns - The Civil War Commemorative Edition [DVD] (DVD)
According to our family Bible we had relatives on both sides of this bloody war and therefore it was a very moving experience. Ultimately the film left me depressed after pondering the insanity of war in general and the US Civil War in particular. Having said that, the documentary was brilliantly done and brought the horrors of this particular war to life. I had to shut off CNN and BBC news for a couple of weeks due to war atrocity overload.
