"The Ultimate Civil War Series: 150th Anniversary Edition" is an All-New 7-part series in High Definition. Total Epic Running time of 353 minutes! NOW on DVD & Blu-Ray!

This incredible new mini-series traces the causes, courses as well as the major events and personalities of the American Civil War as presented during the current 150th anniversary of the "War Between the States." From the birth of the abolitionist movement and the wars over slavery in Kansas and Harper's Ferry, through the election of President Abraham Lincoln and the firing on Fort Sumter and all the major battles to the death of Lincoln and the beginnings of Reconstruction.

Between 1861 and 1865, this epic American story of struggle and survival was written in blood, and in this series is told mostly from first-hand accounts and in the spoken words of the participants themselves, through their diaries, letters, and memoirs. The series concludes with Lee's surrender at Appomattox Court House and the surrender of the western Confederate Army to Sherman in North Carolina in the spring of 1865. It then explores the legacy of slavery and the consequences and meaning of a war that transformed the country forever.

This is the first Civil War series of its kind produced entirely in vivid 1080 High-Definition, and the only one produced for the current 150th anniversary of the war.

Produced entirely in Richmond, Virginia near the sites of many of the battles depicted and analyzed in the program - Virginia was the central focus of the war with more Civil War battlegrounds than any other state. The project also uses extremely detailed and historically accurate and authentic recreations. These incredible Re-enactments feature more than 20,000 re-enactors from around the world at sites in Pennsylvania, Maryland, Virginia, Tennessee, North Carolina, Georgia and Florida. The project also features hundreds of original civil war photographs and artwork from the Library of Congress, the National Archives and the United States Army Center of Military History as well as original new paintings from historian and artist Dan Nance.
