Death And The Civil War

Absolutely fascinating and extremely moving. Every American should take two hours out of their life to see this documentary, and to be reminded of how hundreds of thousands of men, black and white, sacrificed their lives so that we can have the amazing unified country that we have today. This show was so beautifully done…I will be thinking about it for quite some time.


thats a trailer?? Ken Burns passes the torch--hold on!
