The War for Southern Independence

Since my 7th Grade Virginia History class in Jr High, I have been inspired to learn more about my ancestors that served in the Army of Northern Virginia. After viewing this series, I knew I had to go and visit sites I had not see before. I am now, finally, a member of the Sons Of Confederate Veterans. These videos are fantastic but slightly PC rather than the terrible truths that occurred from 1861 - 1865. Very well done. The price is perfect. Download it and you will not be disappointed.

A wonderful offering from iTunes. My family completely enjoys this series! It is a great perspective and we truly appreciate the input of all involved.

America's Bloodiest Day: Twelve Hours at Antietam

Very Interesting timeline with views of the battlefield. BUT! This episode is cut short right after the Bloody Lane is explaned. So the significance of the Burnside Bridge and the Georgians and also The late arrival of A.P. Hill's men from Harpers Fairy that saved the day for the Confederates is not mentioned. Because of this I can't rate the episode any higher than 2 stars.
