HASH(0x92cd2098) out of 5 stars Secrets of the Civil War 3 Feb. 2009

This collection of programs from the History Channel is a treasure trove of information on little known or previously forgotten incidents of the Civil War. At first I thought, "How could I have missed this series?", then discovered that the set is a compilation of previously aired programs that are informative, as well as entertaining. I have recommended this set to several people, and each one of them has reported that they are glad they have been informed about these little "jewels".

HASH(0x92c0a75c) out of 5 stars An Exploration of Things History Never Taught Us 15 Nov. 2008
By The Movie Man - Published on
"Secrets of the Civil War" is a four-disc set containing an in-depth look at significant, but not well-known, battles of the war, from Antietam to Shiloh to Gettysburg. Archival letters, original diary entries, cinematic reenactments and interviews with noted historians bring events that occurred over 140 years ago to vivid life. We learn that in the cavalry charge at Mine Creek, Kansas, it took only 30 minutes for 2,800 Union troops to defeat an enemy force more than double in size. Also covered is a Confederate raid on Vermont and an attempt by Union coal miners to blow up a Southern fort by tunneling underneath it. Nine separate programs from the History Channel are included.

HASH(0x92d700e4) out of 5 stars Engrossing unusual facts about the Civil War 18 Mar. 2010
By R. Moore - Published on

I don't think the HISTORY CHANNEL has ever produced a bad documentary.
This series of investigations of quirky events in the US Civil War is really engrossing... and I'm an Aussie. At times a little over-re-enacted and repetitive, it nevertheless is engaging story-telling. Unfortunately only available in Region 1 mode (why do they do this? - there's a whole world market out there you US centric media people). However, if you have a program such as ANYDVD, it will crack the coding and make it easy to copy the disc to make it playable on any DVD in the world.

HASH(0x92cd24c4) out of 5 stars Interesting! 23 Mar. 2012

As I have said in other reviews most books about the Civil War are about the well known battles/generals, etc. This gives us knowledge of secrets going on behind the battles, movement of troops, etc. It is amazing how much was happening that the general population knew nothing about.

This DVD is recommendable for anyone intrested in history or into the Civil War studies. It is well narrated and well done documentary. It shows some events not learned in the college classroom. So it is a must for the collection to have this DVD for the intellectual enrichment.
