River Of DeathStreaming Video - 2014
Narrated by Emmy-nominated actress Elizabeth McGovern (Downton Abbey), "Civil War: the Untold Story" provides new insights into the causes of the Civil War, life on the home front, the politics of war, the issue of slavery, and the relatively unheralded role African Americans played in the conflict. Filmed at the actual battle sites, the five-part series uses re-enactors to recreate the epic battles of Shiloh, Vicksburg, Chickamauga, Missionary Ridge and Atlanta. Interviews with scholars and 3D graphics convey battle tactics while underscoring the relationship between the Western Campaign and the more famous battles waged in the East. "River of Death" addresses the Emancipation Proclamation and enlisted African American soldiers, the Battle of Vicksburg, and the Battle of Chickamauga.
