Editorial Reviews

The year was 1865. The nation s bloodiest conflict, the Civil War, had just ended. It tore the nation apart, into North and South, Republican and Democrat. It spawned a new generation of weapons designed only to kill men, and it trained a generation of men to kill other men. From this year forward for the next 35 years, the South and the North would continue the war in the Wild West. Out of the devastated South rode the most famous of the outlaw gangs, the James and Youngers and the Daltons. From the North rode the most famous of the lawmen Wild Bill Hickok, Wyatt Earp and Bat Masterson. All of these characters would clash in the hills of Missouri ... The cow towns of Kansas ... And the mining towns of Arizona. Towns such as Northfield, Minnesota, Deadwood, South Dakota and Tombstone, Arizona would blaze into American folklore. This is the story of the West as it has never been told before ... Myth and legend stripped away and the truth revealed by 17 of the nation s top western historians.

This is actually a 2 Disc set and has a total running time of 2 Hours and 20 seconds.It is an attempt by some of the many researchers,writers and historical associations to tell about the true story and characters known as the Wild West.To the best of their ability they try to present the real truth and leave out much of the legend,fiction,myth and nonsense that has become so much of what has been written and/or portrayed in films over the years.
It explains how and why the lawlessness,gunslingers ,weapons, law and justice,etc.,of the Wild West actually came about as a result of the Civil War and the aftermath and reconstruction of it.There is an tremendous amount of information presented in the DVD and it outlines the significance of the most famous Outlaws and Lawmen.It does an excellent job of tying together all the events that took place,mainly from the time of the Civil War up to the end of the 1800's.It details what went on with the movement westward and the development of the west and the cattle ranches,range wars,mining boom towns,revenge of the South against Reconstruction by the Union or northern victors,wagon trains,buffalo hunters,Indian wars ,outlaws,gamblers,the U.S. Army,Pinkertons,train , stagecoach and bank robberies,hangings,shootouts,;and how all these things were interconnected.It sticks with facts and does not embellish events with all sorts of legends and colorful descriptions as does so much that has been written about the Wild West.This period was not long,actually less than about 30 years, and was very complicated;but this DVD does an excellent job of sorting it all out,and presents this history in a very easy to follow and in an orderly manner.
Anyone who enjoys reading or watching movies of the Wild West will find this a very informative resource .
