Rate this:
This Prelinger Archives film is a 1954 dramatization of important battles and military events of the Civil War, using Hollywood-style on-location cinematography as well as reenactments which, although not full-scale battle replications, still effectively convey a sense of the conflict. With the help of eloquent narration, viewers are given an understanding of the social, economic, and geographical factors that led to, prolonged, and eventually ended the war. Animated map graphics and intermittent color photography are used.
