War Begins in EarnestStreaming Video - 2009
This program carries the narrative of the Civil War forward into its opening months, during which hopes for a quick victory died alongside thousands of soldiers during clashes fought on an unprecedented scale. Advances in weaponry and key battles-First and Second Bull Run/Manassas, Shiloh/Pittsburg Landing, and Antietam/Sharpsburg-are analyzed, as well as the possibility of British intervention on the side of the C.S.A., the Northern blockade of the South, the emergence of Generals Grant and Lee, and the First Emancipation Proclamation. Commentary by Eric Foner, Shelby Foote, Henry Steele Commager, David Donald, and William Cooper is featured.
