A MUST TO WATCH
Reviewed in the United States on July 13, 2018
Ken Burns is an amazing story teller. His films are both monumental and very personal in scope. He covers the Civil War topic from ground zero. His conclusions are well documented and he pulls "no" punches. To better understand the why's and how's of America's war against itself, you must review all the episodes and then read every book and reference work you can find on the CW.
Great vintage photographs which have rarely been viewed come alive in these episodes.. As the Civil War gets smaller and smaller in our rearview mirror of life, it is very important that we have a library of video content which will always be available to remind us of the circumstances that led up to the event and finally the conclusion of same.
Another documentary that Burns produced was on baseball. This is truly a winner with live footage of some of the games' greats. If Ken Burns is connected with a project, consider that project as golden. It is a must to have.
But this documentary reads like a novel and will be very meaningful in shaping your opinions.
