Abstract Civil War: the Untold Story provides new insights into the causes of the Civil War, life on the home front, the politics of war, the issue of slavery, and the role African Americans played in the conflict. Filmed at the actual battle sites, the five-part series uses re-enactors to recreate epic battles of war. Interviews with scholars and 3D graphics convey battle tactics while underscoring the relationship between the Western Campaign and the more famous battles waged in the East. A Beacon of Hope covers the conclusion of the Battle of Shiloh and the experience of thousands of escaping slaves fleeing North.
