What I found was a boring film.
D. Kullberg

On first glance, this 4 1/2 hour series is about Civil War battlefields. When you watch it though, you discover that the company recycles the same blurred out "artsy" video clips in every single video and throws in choppy simulations of silent films that, upon first glance, appear to be scenes from "Birth of a Nation." They aren't. It is just as well that it's blurred because it covers up some of the defects of this low scale fiasco. The company is based in Eugene, Oregon, and it seems doubtful that they ever left that state even to take reenactment footage. A blurred out clip of Burnsides Bridge was used for both Manassas, Sharpsburg and Fredericksburg. I was expecting an in depth discussion of each battlefield with full colored realistic reenactment footage. If you are looking for quality and scholarship, you won't find it in this one.

Civil War Battlefields - Gettysburg / Wilderness / Spotsylvania / Appomattox I watched this DVD, hoping for an inspiring portrayal of this significant part of U.S. history. What I found was a boring film.Its only salvation was the importance of the subject matter. I assume it was historically accurate, but the graphics were repetitive in both discs, and the narration was dull and ponderous, particularly by the persons filmed . It is an interesting subject, but these DVDs don't do it justice. There must be a better source. Duane R. Kullberg

Obviously a low-budget affair. Random, stock footage from seemingly old movies and/or reenactments ('60s/'70s) are used to illustrate key Civil War battles, often over & over. There is a grand total of one (yes, one) "expert" used constantly who rambles on & on. I actually nodded off several times before finally giving up (I didn't even finish it). Not worth your time, trust me! (Stick to "The Civil War" by Ken Burns)

A 4-DVD set for $9.98. Sounds like a bargain you say? NOT! This series has been released in single DVD form previously, and I can tell you THEY ARE BAD! There are some quality documentaries/films about the Civil War but these are NOT it. You have been warned!
