Synopsis by Rose of Sharon Winter
The Civil War remains the bloodiest war in the history of the United States, as the North and South of the land engaged in a pitched battle over ideas and territory. Economics and slavery were two of those issues that rent the fabric of a nation and turned brother against brother. This series chronicles some of the key moments in the war's four-year progression. This episode turns to Atlanta, the torch point for General Sherman's infamous march to the sea. Reenactments, archival photographs, journals, and commentary by historians recall the events that took place there.
