Synopsis by Tracie Cooper
This two-disc release from Eagle Vision offers a concise overview of the Civil Wars and its most significant battles. Presented in four hour-long chronological segments, realistic reenactments and various academics outline the happenings of the Civil War, beginning with the period preceding it in order to encourage a thorough understanding regarding the philosophies of both the Union and Confederate armies. While informative enough for most armchair historians, this production is primarily intended for classroom use. The DVD comes in a standard full-frame format. Extras include keys to a "weapons cabinet" featuring several common weapons of the war, profiles of pivotal war-time leaders, a photo gallery, authentic letters from the battle fields, war songs, and a trivia segment.
