Perhaps no other conflict has left a greater impact on our  collective identity than the American Civil War. From the first volleys on Fort Sumter to the final surrender at Appomattox, the hostilities between North and South nearly destroyed the Union, and have left scars that are still evident today. Now, in this complete 2 DVD collection, all of the greatest battles of the American Civil War are revealed in scholarly detail. From the early Confederate victories at Bull Run, through Pickett's desperate charge at Gettysburg, to the seemingly inevitable Southern collapse and capitulation at Appomattox Court House. This in-depth 2 disc set combines archival material with faithfully created battle re-enactments to depict the real horror and heroism of Civil War combat. Witness the sacrifice of over 600,000 patriots in fierce hand-to-hand combat and face-to-face warfare struggling to preserve their ways of life. Ride with battlefield commanders as they test the limits of new technology as well as their ability to adapt their strategy, tactics and military prowess to fight the first "modern" war. It's all here in this unique 2 DVD colle
