Editorial Reviews

So prophesied Abraham Lincoln, in a speech given on June 16th, 1858—two years before his election to the Presidency would trigger the collapse of national unity. The cause—a fundamental paradox in the country’s architectural plan. Built as an experiment in freedom, America remained committed to the institution of slavery, and its foundations were cracking under the strain. The American Civil War creates a vivid portrait of America’s greatest internal crisis, from the first antislavery protests to Lee’s surrender at Appomattox. Along the way, this series examines the moral, political, and strategic forces that set brother against brother for more than four years, in what is generally understood to be the first modern war. Created by some of the most respected producers and historians of the genre this 5-DVD set entertains, educates and conveys a message that should remain with us all. With the help of several thousand living history re-enactors, The American Civil War goes beyond the fog of war and allows you to experience the glory and heartache of the battles that changed war forever.

I must say that I find it rather inappropriate to list these 4 reviews since they are not about THIS DVD at all! They are reviewing an older "The American Civil War, Collectors Edition...NOT the 150th Anniversary Collector's Edition which has only now been released. If you look closely you will see that the dates of the reviews are several years old. It will,I'm afraid, put some people off from purchasing this because of the very poor reviews.

I was impressed with this set. I have been a Civil War buff from way back and the accuracy of this series is great. I love the reenactment sections and the narrative is not monotonous like so many historical narrators tend to be.

A beautiful collection of battles and facts. Purchased for a thirteen year old grandson who is a civil war reenactor. He loved it as did the whole family, Beautiful color and reality in battles. A nice gift for any Civil War/History enthuist!

I was in Gettysburg this summer and anything i can get my hands on that has to do with the 150 celebration is my passion. I am a collector and these CD's pretty much tell you the what, who, when, and why we fought the Civil War.

After looking at the previous reviews, especially the one saying they are for an older edition (which the product links show it was made in 2008), it could be possible that that DVD is Vol 1 in this set. Visually I found volume 1 quite boring but the audio was interesting with quotes from soldiers. This DVD makes the war seem like it revolved around slavery unfortunately.

I found Vol 2 much more interesting but some material from volume 1 reappears almost verbatim.
