|1||Closed CaptioningVideoGettysburg||The world will little note, nor long remember, what we say here, but it can never forget what they did here." Abraham Lincoln's iconic Gettysburg Address frames this epic, two-hour HISTORY special, commemorating the 150th anniversary of the Civil War. Executive produced by Tony Scott and Ridley Scott, Gettysburg looks at the battle from a visceral new perspective, that of the everyday soldiers who fought there, in a confrontation that changed the fate of our nation. Stripping away the romanticized veneer of past treatments, Gettysburg conveys new information and honors the sacrifice of those, both North and South, who fought and died in battle. Raw, immersive and emotional, this groundbreaking event puts viewers inside the three-day conflict where over 50,000 men paid the ultimate price.||1:25:45||$3.99||View in iTunes|

|4||Closed CaptioningVideoYou Don't Know Dixie||The idea that history is written by the victors is perhaps nowhere more true than in the aftermath of the American Civil War. The Union's defeat of the Confederacy brought the southern states back into the American fold, but in many ways, the two regions would remain divided, the North inheriting the credit for its impact on history.||1:26:55||$3.99||View in iTunes|

The conspiracy was vast - an effort to decapitate the United States government at the end of the Civil War. The manhunt was intense - ending 12 days later in a fiery showdown with the man who pulled the trigger - John Wilkes Booth.||1:30:13||$3.99||View in iTunes|
