The Ken Burns Civil War Collection

This is the Civil War media collection by renowned documentarian Ken Burns that details how our nation's most bitter conflict irrevocably shaped our history. The collection includes the original award-winning 1990 TV series The Civil War on six DVDs--over 10 hours spanning the casus belli, key engagements, and aftermath, supplemented by wartime photographer Matthew Brady's iconic imagery and commentary by Civil War scholars. Noted historian Shelby Foote explains why Johnny Reb would have referred to the same battle as "Sharpsburg" while Billy Yank would have referred to it as "Antietam". The 425-page companion volume to the series, The Civil War: An Illustrated History, provides over 500 rare photographs, paintings, lithographs, and full-color maps, such as Major General George Pickett's infamous charge against the Union line at Gettysburg. An included CD features the epic series' original soundtrack of 28 traditional American songs and instrumental music. 11 1/2" H x 10 1/2" W x 3 1/2" D. (5 lbs.)
