Editorial Reviews

The American Civil War (1861-1865) is one of the greatest conflicts in the history of mankind, and the bloodiest and saddest war in American history. What began as a bitter dispute over Union and States' Rights, ended as a struggle over the meaning of freedom in America. It saw the end of slavery. It inspired men who had never strayed far from their own front doors to become soldiers in great armies, and to fight in epic battles hundreds of miles from home. It was the first modern war and the costliest, yielding at least 600,000 casualties and unprecedented domestic suffering, both spiritually and physically. As a defining moment in United States history, our Civil War has no equal, which is why it remains such a fascinating subject even today. The dramatic story of the Civil War unfolds as we relive the battles that helped save the nation, including Manassas, Antietam, Fredericksburg, Chancellorsville, Spotsylvania, Gettysburg,and the final surrender at Appomattox.

By A Customer on January 4, 2001
Format: VHS Tape
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.

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!

I have the DVD version, too. The Blu ray is just as bad; 4:3 and only Dolby Digital 2.0. Simply transferred to Blu ray with no Hi Def mastering whatsoever!!! Don't buy ANY version!!!

I don't know what set the other reviewers were watching, but this is a fine treatment of the battles of the Civil War that Ken Burns Civil War documentary doesn't cover in depth. I liked the commentary from the various historians and the reactments showed just how smokey a battlefield can become very quickly. I've watched the whole set many times. Highly recommended!!
