The March to War

Apr 07, 2015 | tv-14 v

The Civil War, one of the most defining moments in American history, tore the nation apart, pitting North against South–brother against brother. Over the course of four years, more than 750,000 military and civilian lives were sacrificed to make the United States a more perfect union, where the human rights of every person are guaranteed. With unprecedented access to government and private archives and using state-of-the-art technology, over 500 rare and compelling black and white photographs have been painstakingly colorized to illustrate the story of the Civil War in breathtaking detail. Part 1 is an examination of the cultural and political tensions that ultimately exploded into the most storied and bloodied war ever fought on U.S. soil. The issues of slavery and states’ rights caused a deep divide between the North and the South, pitting brother against brother and tearing families apart. What was once an unthinkable war was now an inevitable one. (Part 1 of 2.)
