|Description||The American Civil War remains the deadliest war ever undertaken in the Western Hemisphere. Over 600 000 Americans died during four years of strife – more than died in World War 1, World War 2, Korea and Vietnam combined. This program begins with Robert E. Lee taking charge of the Confederate forces. Events covered include the Emancipation Proclamation, various battles including the Battle of Gettysburg – the bloodiest of the war, Lincoln’s re-election, Lee’s surrender, and Lincoln’s assassination. It also looks at the events following Lincoln’s death and the bitterness and sorrow that continued. Genuine period photographs, re-creations and artwork illustrate this journey through the military and political battles of the Civil War and its aftermatch.|
