The Last Days of the Civil WarDVD - 2003
"It was the gravest crisis in American history. For four bitter years, Union and Confederate troops battled to determine the fate of a divided nation, with the outcome unclear until the very end. THE LAST DAYS OF THE CIVIL WAR explores this critical period through five original programs. April 1865: The Month That Saved America, based on Jay Winik's bestselling book, chronicles the remarkable succession of events leading from the fall of Richmond to Appomattox. Civil War Combat: The Tragedy at Cold Harbor details the brutal, 10-month battle many feel was the war's turning point. And in-depth profiles--two from the award-winning BIOGRAPHY series--illuminate the personalities at the heart of the conflict: Abraham Lincoln, Jefferson Davis, and Robert E. Lee. Explore the forces, figures and events that defined the end of a tragic era-and shaped the nation that emerged."--P.  of cover.
