Based on the best-selling book by Drew Gilpin Faust, this film will explore how the American Civil War created a "republic of suffering" and will chart the far-reaching social, political, and social changes brought about by the pervasive presence and fear of death during the Civil War.
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.
