Overview

Synopsis

Civil War Minutes: Union, Part III
Through photographs, writings, and live action, this series offers a detailed and intimate glimpse at the real lives of those persons who fought and died for their side. In a series of short vignettes, volume three looks at Carte-de-Visite photography, which was used extensively to document the war. Through diary excerpts and letters, soldiers describe premonitions of death and the experience of being under fire while those next to them lay mortally wounded. Narrator and historian Michael Kraus examines a standard Federal backpack, which contained all the essentials for a soldier's survival. ~ Alice Day, Rovi

Civil War Minutes: Union, Part I
Through photographs, writings, and live action, this series offers a detailed and intimate glimpse at the real lives of those persons who fought and died for their side in a series of short vignettes. Volume one profiles Oscar Jackson, a soldier shot and left for dead in a battle, who went on to recover and become a state senator. It discusses the perils of being a troop Color Guard, whose members were targeted in battle because they carried bright upright flags. How were blue and grey uniforms standardized? At the Battle of Bull Run, the Federal and Confederate uniforms proved to be indistinguishable, and many soldiers lost their lives from friendly fire. Two letters give first-hand accounts of the battle violence, and a Civil War wife expresses her grief over the death of President Lincoln. ~ Alice Day, Rovi

A report from Samuel Weaver, superintendent of exhuming bodies from the battlefields, gives details on how body identifications were undertaken. A flintock musket, an artillery drum, and a field and staff sword are examined up close. The stories in a regimental newspaper from the 100th Pennsylvania Volunteer army are discussed. ~ Alice Day, Rovi
