During America's Civil War, there came the evolution of pistols and rifles and artillery that would forever change the way in which humankind would fight its wars. Within the names that would forever establish themselves in the annals of weaponry - Colt, Winchester, Smith & Wesson - lies a different story of the Civil War. Volume 1 A Greater Moral Force The stories of the weapons used in the Civil War are as colorful as the men who used them. From the fields and farms, from the factories and ships, came the men who would forge the bloodiest of conflicts, the war that would tear a nation apart. Volume 2 Measure for Measure As the great battles took shape and the legendary figures of Lee, Custer, Stonewall Jackson, John Mosby, and so many others wrote their pages of history, both the Union and Confederate soldiers badly needed more weapons. The story of the war was in many ways the story of the search for arms and how the boys who had to use these weapons quickly became men or were heard from no more. Volume 3 Against the Thunderstorm The clamor of the cavalry charge. The cry of armies rushing toward each other. The sounds of war. Yet there is another sound, another destructive force, that joins the battle cry. For death and destruction come quickly in the wake of the often deafening explosions of artillery. (170 minutes)
