    This really is a superb piece of documentary making. The way the story is told by weaving together photographs, music, personal accounts and historical record is fantastic. Such is the power and detail of the story telling you cannot help but be drawn into the world of Lincoln, Grant and Lee. A remarkable series about truly incredible times.

    Quite the most beautifully crafted documentary series I've had the pleasure of watching. The magic is in its uncluttered simplicity, in part dictated by the nature of much of the source material; wonderful black and white stills, but with sympathetic scoring and authoritative and engaging contributors.
  • Astonishing

    This is an incredible tour de force. It covers all aspects of this war from the slaughter of the battlefield to the feelings of the civilians at home. The collection of photographs, the historians interviewed, the superb rendition of the words of participants by great actors: couldn't be bettered.
