Collector's set of the critically acclaimed Ken Burns' documentary miniseries and the highest rated PBS show in history. The Civil War is examined in exquisite detail as has never been done before using the words of citizens and slaves of the time.

The only thing wrong with this 11-hour cinematic mammoth is that it's not longer.

Almost overwhelming in its sheer eleven hour girth, it's worth every minute.

Audience Reviews for Ken Burns' The Civil War: A Film Directed By Ken Burns (MINI-SERIES)

May be the greatest documentary ever made. Granted you must like history, but if you do, this is 11 hours of transcendental ecstasy.
