It doesn't get any better than Ken Burns

Comments about PBS The Civil War DVD 5PK:

Ken Burns does on film with the Civil War what Shelby Foote does with his writing. Makes you feel like "you are there".

Timeless Essential

Comments about PBS The Civil War DVD 5PK:

I purchased this as a last-minute Christmas gift for my husband. We thoroughly enjoyed the original airing of Ken Burns' Civil War, and it is thrilling to now be sharing it with our teen son who is studying Civil War in his AP US History class. This is a splendid comprehensive assemblage of the period's history, politics, and rare personal-interest anecdotes. I would highly recommend this set, as well as the companion soundtrack.

The Civil War

Comments about PBS The Civil War DVD 5PK:

It has been years since I saw these amazing DVDs. I intended to watch this over several days. and, instead did a marathon. I believe it was all the more impressive. I have read many books on the war, but the amazing photographs with the personal letters of the soldiers made the Civil War all the more personal for me. This DVD set is a must for every American. The sacrifices made by the common soldiers on both sides where extraordinary.
It also helped me understand why America is still suffering from that awful war over slavery.
