The Civil War

The Civil War: A Film by Ken Burns

Ken Burns’ Emmy Award-winning documentary brings to life America’s most destructive – and defining – conflict.

The Civil War is the saga of celebrated generals and ordinary soldiers, a heroic and transcendent president and a country that had to divide itself in two in order to become one.

The series chronicles the American Civil War, examining its causes, key events, and consequences through a combination of archival photos, letters, diaries, and interviews with historians and actors reading from primary sources. It covers a wide range of topics related to the Civil War, including slavery, politics, military strategy, battles, and the impact of the war on American society. It also explores the personal stories of individuals who lived through the war, both on the battlefield and on the home front.

This original Emmy® Award-winning nine-part series is now digitally restored to archive the highest definition for optimal picture quality.

This six-disc set includes over two hours of new bonus materials including Making the Civil War: 25 Years Later, Complete High Definition Shelby Foote Interviews, Restoring The Civil War, Additional Interviews, and more.

The Civil War is available now (RRP $99.95).
