War and "Piece"

By Janelle the belle

from Spokane, WA

Verified Reviewer

Comments about PBS American Experience: Death and The Civil War DVD:

Every war has death, but this American Experience program exploring how Americans came to view death brings to the contemporary viewer a sobering aspect of the Civil War. Most of us don't think about how such a basic "fact of life" as death can change over the generations. Now we will.

A shocking side to war!

Comments about PBS American Experience: Death and The Civil War DVD:

Wow! A side of war that few think of. Most interesting. I had some knowledge of this, but this really pulled together many other aspects that I'd not considered or thought of. Worth a watch by all just for the understanding of the remnants of war.

Death at a distance.

Comments about PBS American Experience: Death and The Civil War DVD:

Good explanation of how major events have changed the course of history. This presentation shows the tragedy of the American Civil War. The devastating effects on families, communities, states and the nation. It also helps to explain how dealing with death and dying became the impersonal, solitary practice of the current culture.

Excellent documentary

By Pants

Comments about PBS American Experience: Death and The Civil War DVD:

This documentary shows the Civil War from a perspective few people explore or even think about. It details a country unprepared for dealing with so much death and offers authentic letters from soldiers just before they died, as well as first hand accounts from local citizens given the responsibility of disposing of the dead. This is a DVD worth getting.
