Aftershock [electronic resource]: Beyond the Civil War

When General Robert E. Lee surrendered at Appomattox, it marked the end of a terrible period of conflict that nearly destroyed the United States. But it also marked the beginning of a period of recovery that was in many ways as painful as the war itself. Freed blacks remained essentially enslaved, and race and tax riots, marauders and insurgents, profiteers, carpetbaggers, the KKK, and Jesse James all contributed to the post-Civil War turmoil. This A & E Special uses dramatizations, archival photos, and meticulous scholarship to show in stunning detail the trials that befell America during the time period known as Reconstruction.

Ambrose Bierce's an Occurrence at Owl Creek Bridge [electronic resource]

The Civil War. A nation torn apart. A war fought in great battles, and a war fought on a much smaller scale...within the minds and hearts of a nation's young men. On a lonely bridge, a group of soldiers prepare for the somber task of hanging one of their countrymen, now an enemy, for sabotage. This classic retelling of Ambrose Bierce's acclaimed story "An Occurrence at Owl Creek Bridge," from Tales of Soldiers and Civilians, begins on an isolated span and then transforms into a far-ranging journey through the mind and dreams of a man facing death.

Amendment 14 [electronic resource]: Civil Rights of Citizens

The U.S. Constitution is the world's oldest written charter of government in continuous effect. Much of the success of this document can be attributed to the way the Constitution has changed to meet the needs of the American people. The framers of the Constitution wisely anticipated the need to make changes to the Constitution as the world itself changed. Between 1787, when the Constitution was written, and the present time, thousands of proposed amendments have been introduced in Congress. But in that time, only 27 of those proposed amendments have been ratified. These 27 amendments tell some of the most important stories in American political, social, and cultural history. They tell the story of the founding principles of the American nation, and how that nation has changed. This c [...]

When you walk the silent Antietam Battlefield in the cool of early morning with the mist undulating in the hollows of West Wood, they are there-the ghosts of the generals and the 26,000 young Americans who died on the day one of them said was so long that "the sun moved backwards." Putting the battle into historical perspective, historian William Brown brings the massive battle to life, explaining how the muskets and field cannons worked, what the men wore, and what the battle was like for the ordinary soldier.
