"Look men, there is Jackson standing like a stone wall! Let us determine to die here, and we will conquer!"

That cry tells the story of the battle of First Manassas on July 21, 1861. Thereafter, the great commanders of the North and South would engage in 13 additional battles that included: Manassas, Ft. Donelson, Shiloh, New Orleans, 2nd Manassas, Antietam, Fredericksburg, Murfeesboro, Vicksburg, Gettysburg, Chickamauga, Chattanooga, The Wilderness, and Atlanta. It's all here, the Commanders and the soldiers of the Blue and Gray, and the unforgettable images of the bitterest conflicts ever waged on American soil.


DVD 1:

Thomas J. Stonewall Jackson and Joshua L. Chamberlain

A graduate of West Point, Lt. Gen. Thomas J. “Stonewall” Jackson was considered to be Gen. Lee’s right-hand man. Rising in military rank as the Civil War progressed, Jackson fought in many battles, including Harper’s Ferry, First and Second Manassas, Antietam, and Fredericksburg. “In great deeds, something abides.” These words exemplify the prolific Brig. Gen. Joshua Chamberlain, who is best known for his heroic participation in the battle of Gettysburg, which included his regiment’s bayonet charge down Little Round Top.

Ulysses S. Grant

To his friends, he was simply known as “Sam,” but to President Lincoln and the Union North, Gen. Ulysses S. Grant was the key to victory. Grant’s role in the Civil War was far-reaching, including his strategic masterpiece at the Battle of Vicksburg. Lincoln promoted Grant to Commander of all the Union forces and his dogged attacks on the Armies of the Confederacy set him apart as the best of the Union generals.

Great Campaigns of the Civil War

From the opening shots at Ft. Sumter to Lee’s surrender at Appomattox Courthouse, this emotionally charged presentation is an accurate portrayal of how the soldiers fought for the Blue and the Gray. The critical moments of each battle are faithfully recreated and reenacted, revealing unforgettable images of 14 bitter conflicts. Narrated by James Whitmore.

 

DVD 2:

A Union Divided - During the middle of the 1800s, various states that composed the United States of America grappled with such future-focused topics as industry vs. farming, state’s rights, expansion, and slavery. As the gulf between the Northern and Southern visions of how the country should grow began to widen beyond redress, the secession of states in the South became a reality. Through the use of 3D computer graphics, combined with authentic and atmospherically-filmed reconstructions, A Union Divided breathes new life into the Civil War, a war that forever altered the future of the United States of America.


DVD 3:

Lincoln and Lee at Antietam - In September, 1862, President Abraham Lincoln wanted to issue the Emancipation Proclamation, but needed a victory as a showcase. However, Gen. Robert E. Lee had his sights set on invading the North. When Gen. Lee’s battle strategy notes fell into the hands of the Union Army, the North quickly gained the upper hand, the result being the single bloodiest day in American history. That was the Battle of Antietam near Sharpsburg, Maryland, and Antietam Creek. This 14-hour conflict was the first battle fought on Northern soil in the Civil War.
