COMBO 2: DVD + BOOK + AUDIO TOUR CD + 6 DVD, KEN BURNS CIVIL WAR

The Civil War raged into its third year, tearing apart the young nation that President Abraham Lincoln tried to hold together. Three years earlier, eleven southern states seceded to form the Confederate State of America. The War Between the States pitted Americans against other Americans. In some cases, family members fought against other family members. They battled for independence, state’s rights, freedom and equality.

During four years of brutal fighting, pivotal battles took place all across the country. But in May and June of 1864, all eyes were on the Shenandoah Valley of Virginia, where Union General David Hunter, operating under the direct orders of Ulysses S. Grant, marched southward to drive out confederate forces. This is the story of the renowned general and thousands of soldiers who fought for and against him and thousands more residents of the Shenandoah Valley affected by Hunter’s Raid.

6-DVD SET - KEN BURNS: THE CIVIL WAR
Description: Ken Burns' Emmy® Award-winning documentary brings to life America's most destructive - and defining - conflict. THE CIVIL WAR is the saga of celebrated generals and ordinary soldiers, a heroic and transcendent president and a country that had to divide itself in two in order to become one.

Episodes:
Episode 1: The Cause - 1861 
The stage is set for war as the nation begins to tear apart. Opposition by the North to slavery in the South fuels a bitter debate, and the country wrestles with conflicts between the Union and States' rights. Commanding center stage are towering figures - Abraham Lincoln, Frederick Douglass, Ulysses S. Grant and Robert E. Lee.

Episode 2: A Very Bloody Affair - 1862 
The war to preserve the Union becomes a war to free the slaves, and political fights become as a fierce as those on the battlefield. The chains of slavery begin to crumble while the Confederacy struggles for recognition, and its resourceful army hands the Union critical defeats.

Episode 3: Forever Free - 1862 
Defeat hovers over the Union Army as President Lincoln prepares the landmark Emancipation Proclamation to free the slaves. While Lincoln waits for a victorious moment for this announcement, Union troops lose repeatedly. Finally with a victory at Antietam Creek, the bloodiest day of the war gives way to the dawn of emancipation.

Episode 4: Simply Murder - 1863 
Their names are etched forever in history - Fredericksburg, Chancellorsville, Vicksburg - some of the Civil War's stormiest battlegrounds. While life in the South becomes more desperate, Northern opposition to Lincoln's Emancipation Proclamation also grows. The combat spearheaded by Ulysses S. Grant and Robert E. Lee brings the war to a fever pitch.

Episode 5: The Universe of Battle - 1863 
The turning point of the war is reached at the legendary Battle of Gettysburg. While 150,000 men face death in Pennsylvania's fields, the war spreads westward. As the Union drafts more soldiers, riots rage in New York, and African American troops join the fight. At Gettysburg's cemetery, President Lincoln articulates the poignant hope "that government of the people, by the people, and for the people shall not perish from the earth."

Episode 6: Valley of the Shadow of Death - 1864 
In one month's time, General Grant's and General Lee's armies suffer more casualties than in three years of war, but the impasse continues. A standoff at Petersburg and General Sherman's campaign through Georgia push the death toll higher.

Episode 7: Most Hallowed Ground - 1864 
The presidential campaign of 1864 finds a nation truly divided against itself, and Lincoln seems doomed to defeat. The Union armies have stalled, and people have turned against the war. Unexpectedly, eleventh-hour victories sway the votes Lincoln's way.

Episode 8: War Is All Hell - 1865 
Sherman's legendary "March to the Sea" portends the war's end, searing the heartland of Georgia and the Carolinas. Key Southern cities fall under General Grant's command and General Lee's dramatic surrender finally unfolds.

Episode 9: The Better Angels of Our Nature - 1865 
In the bittersweet days after the war's end, the Union's triumph quickly turns to sorrow. Just five days after victory, President Lincoln dies by the hand of John Wilkes Booth. This final episode surveys the fates of the people who left their indelible marks on this remarkable era. And it leaves us with insights into the meaning of a conflict that helped make us the nation we are today.

BOOK - BATTLE OF LYNCHBURG
Author L. VanLoan Naisawald has authored a concise history of Union General David Hunter's 1864 valley campaign, from the aftermath of his army's victory at the Battle of Piedmont to his retreat from Lynchburg. According to the author, significant gaps exist in the source material. While certainly hampering any current effort to write a thorough study of the battle, Naisawald clearly identifies where these gaps occur and, unlike many other authors, avoids filling them with unwarranted conjecture. Although the missing pieces of the puzzle can be frustrating for the reader, a reasonably detailed narrative of the events occurring on June 17 and 18 Battle of Lynchburg is constructed. Sources are evaluated in the main text, allowing the reader insight into the author's line of thinking. It's good stuff, and is best illustrated by Naisawald's insightful analysis of Union general Alfred Duffie's battle report detailing that officer's actions on the 18th. 82 pages, 4 maps, photos, illustrations, endnotes, reading list.
