"Six years in the making, this epic 15 hour film focuses on the stories of citizens from four geographically distributed American towns -- Waterbury, Connecticut; Mobile, Alabama; Sacramento, California; and the tiny farming town of Luverne, Minnesota. These four communities stand in for -- and could represent -- any town in the United States that went through the war's four devastating years. Individuals from each community take the viewer through their own personal and quite often harrowing journey into war, painting vivid portraits of how the war dramatically altered their lives and those of their neighbors, as well as the country that helped to save for generations to come"--Container

The Shepherd of the Night Flock( Visual )

3 editions published between 1986 and 2015 in English and Undetermined and held by 107 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Shepherd of the Night Flock is a documentary about a jazz ministry at St. Peter's Lutheran Church at 54th and Lexington in Manhattan which was led by Father John Garcia Gensel. Gensel had started the Jazz Vespers for those musicians of his growing night ministry who couldn't make it to Sunday morning service after playing late Saturday night gigs. It became the church home for many musicians including Zoot Sims, Billy Strayhorn and Billy Taylor, and the legendary jazz great Duke Ellington, who was a frequent worshiper. He called Pastor Gensel "the shepherd who watches over the night flock" and wrote a song with that title, which is how the film was named. In the film Father Gensel delivers a moving eulogy for Ellington at the Cathedral of St. John the Divine. The need for a film began because the church was being relocated by a skyscraper construction project - its first edit, People on the Move, was used by churches across the country which were facing a similar problem - but the film began to evolve as needs became clear. One special use was to introduce different parts of the congregation to each other. There was a morning service run by old Germans who thought that the Jazz Vespers was just for people of color and others who did not really fit into what their idea of a congregation would be. Stoney says, "And so we started making stuff about the Jazz Vespers. And then combining 10 minutes of the morning service and 10 minutes of the Jazz Vespers. And we found that the morning people didn't realize that the Jazz Vespers was actually a religious experience. And the Jazz Vespers people saw that the morning service people really cared about the traditions of the church. And it began to pull the congregation together." Over time the film developed into a nuanced biographical portrait of John Gensel. This video is part of the George C. Stoney Collection Materials organized with collaboration of Mike Hazard, documentary filmmaker and archivist for George C. Stoney. For more, visit www.thecie.org

This episodes begins with the presidential campaign of 1864 that set Lincoln against his old commanding general, George McClellan. The stakes are nothing less than the survival of the Union itself: with Grant and Sherman stalled at Petersburg and Atlanta, opinion in the North has turned strongly against Lincoln and the war. But eleventh hour Union victories at Mobile Bay, Atlanta and the Shenandoah Valley tilt the election to Lincoln, and the Confederacy's last hope for independence dies. The episode also examines the prison camps, and the role of spies in the war effort. In an ironic twist, Lee's Arlington mansion is turned into a Union military hospital and the estate becomes Arlington National Cemetery--the Union's most hallowed ground
