Comments about PBS The Civil War DVD 5PK:

No matter what you "believe or have been told" about the Civil War, here is the unadulterated, unvarnished truth backed by documented letters, journals, and government archives. Beautiful and authentic paintings illustrate this valuable work. This should be in every American home.

Must see

By Old tex

Comments about PBS The Civil War DVD 5PK:

Many details not shown on both sides. An unbiased balanced evaluation that better explains both sides of the war. Should be mandatory in schools instead of the scan over from text books.

Comments about PBS The Civil War DVD 5PK:

AS EVERYONE NO DOUBT KNOWS, KEN BURNS IS A MASTER WHEN IT COMES TO AMERICAN HISTORY BUT, IF BY CHANCE, SOMEONE IS UNAWARE OF HIS CIVIL WAR SET, THEY NEED TO SOMEHOW SEE IT. IT IS TRULY A REMARKABLE DVD SET COVERING A VERY IMPORTANT PART OF OUR AMERICAN HISTORY. A MUST SEE FOR SURE.

The gold standard

By CJ

Comments about PBS The Civil War DVD 5PK:

25 years later, "The Civil War" remains the documentary against which all others are measured. It is a hold-your-breath, amazing retelling of one of the darkest periods in Amrican history. Ken Burns' style of documentary film-making showcases the power of storytelling.
