    Honestly, it started allow but the drama really picked up in the last few episodes. Nicely written characters.

    In authentic and historical inaccuracies. Example an officer brags about his affluence including being trained as a physician at Princeton. Princeton University was The College of New Jersey until it was renamed Princeton in 1896. The College of New Jersey was a theological school and did not offer degrees in the sciences until long after the civil war. It was one of a handful of colleges in civil war era and not particularly attended by the affluent.

    Much more even-handed than most entertainment set in that period. The cast is very compelling and the writing is excellent. The costumes are understated, but highly appropriate.

    My wife and I loved Mercy Stree! Does a great job of of blending the human interest of a dramatic hospital drama with the tensions of the Civil War and its underlying moral issue of slavery. Bring it back with more episodes, PBS!

    This is an incredibly well-done series. Authenticity is first rate, and the acting is spot-on!

    It's historical, the actors play interesting characters, in short it is an entertaining episode. They do not resort to gruesome murders or soft porn to create a plot. So extra credit for that.
