Summary
  • 1865, war is all hell (Episode 8): "Sherman's legendary 'March to the Sea' portends the war's end, searing the heartlands of Georgia and the Carolinas. Key southern cities fall under General Grant's command, and General Lee's troops have nowhere left to flee. In the stillness of the Appomattox Court House, Lee's dramatic surrender to Grant finally unfolds. As the news echoes through Washington, a plan for the South's revenge is hatched in the angry mind of a man named John Wilkes Booth"--Container
  • 1865, the better angels of our nature (Episode 9): "In the bittersweet days after the war's end, the Union's triumph quickly turns to sorrow. Just five days after victory, President Lincoln dies by the hand of John Wilkes Booth, and the nation's story is again changed forever. This final episode surveys the fates of the people who left their indelible mark on this remarkable era. And it leaves us with insights into the meaning of a conflict that helped make us the nation we are today."--Container
