This official commemorative video from the Civil War Trust uses period photographs, factual re-enactments and first person accounts bring the epic contest to life.
It was the most difficult time in American history. The disaster that befell America from 1861-1865 nearly divided the nation permanently. Culled from the research of Princeton University professor and noted historian James McPherson, this official commemorative video from the Civil War Trust tells the story of the War Between the States. From the attack on Fort Sumter to the surrender at Appomatox, period photographs, factual re-enactments and first person accounts bring this epic contest to life.
Also included is a bonus program from CIVIL WAR JOURNALT. IRON JAWS: THE KILLING POWER OF CIVIL WAR ARTILLERY is an in-depth look at the revolutionary new weapons that made the Civil War the deadliest in American history.
A portion of the proceeds from the sale of this video goes to help preserve Civil War battlefields. For more information, call 1-800-CW-TRUST.
