Plot Synopsis

BLOOD AND GLORY: THE CIVIL WAR IN COLOR brings The Civil War to life in this two-night event series. With unprecedented access to government and private archives and using state-of-the-art technology, over 500 rare black-and-white photographs have been colorized to illustrate the story of the Civil War in breathtaking detail. Descendants of Frederick Douglass, General Ulysses S. Grant and Confederate President Jefferson Davis along with Retired U.S. Army Generals David Petraeus and Colin Powell; former senator Carol Moseley-Braun; scholars Allen Guelzo, James Oakes and George Rable; and Civil War historians Richard Dreyfuss and Ben Stein, among others, describe pivotal events that led America into bloody conflict, the impact of state-of-the-art weaponry and technology, the tragic and unimaginable cost of combat, and the struggle to rebuild a life and a country after the war between the states had ended.
