"As the strain of total war increased on both sides, the Union and Confederacy each bitterly fought on in an effort to break the other's will. Topics in this program range from draft riots in the North and the Union's recruitment of African-Americans, to the hardships imposed on the South by the ongoing coastal blockade and Sherman's March to the Sea, to the wartime leadership of Lincoln and Davis, to the battles that shaped the beginning of the end of the Civil War: Chickamauga, Second Chattanooga, the Wilderness, Spotsylvania, Cold Harbor and Mobile Bay."--Distributor's website
Forward to Sumter : the beginning of the war between the states( Visual )

This program addresses abolitionist fervor in the industrialized North; the rising clamor for secession in the antebellum South, an agrarian economy transfigured by the cotton gin; and the political emergence of Abraham Lincoln--intertwined strands of history that, like a burning fuse, ignited the War Between the States."--Distributor's website
