War Documentary hosted by Scott Glenn, published by National Geographic in 2011 – English narration
In the wake of the 150th anniversary of the Civil War, National Geographic follows descendants of ordinary Americans as they embark on personal journeys to discover the stories of their ancestors in the bloodiest war in American history.
This three-part program reveals the amazing human stories of lives turned upside down by the Civil War–from a Virginian slave holding lady to a Union officer and a Confederate private. Through vivid recreations and innovative graphic techniques, we’ll go back in time to see the true consequences of hard war and the resilient human spirit.
Eleven Civil-War descendants search for insights into the experiences of their ancestors, who include a Union and a Confederate private, a doctor, one of the first black soldiers, a slave and a nurse from New York. Casting a human light on the Civil War experience, these eye-opening programs profile a range of individuals by having their descendants trace their stories. Insights from experts and reenactors, along with visits to actual Civil War locales, give a visceral and immediate sense of what different people went through during the war.
The program helps viewers understand what it was really like to be a Confederate recruit, a surgeon, a slave, a soldier at Gettysburg, and more. Archival photos, excerpts from diaries and letters, and computer animations add to the compelling stories. In honor of the 150th anniversary of the American Civil War, Nat Geo aired all three episodes on a single night.
