Cinema Cycle - The Civil War: Vol. 5

(Cardio Workout And Reviewing Movies At The Same Time)

SYNOPSIS: The Battles of Gettysburg, Fredericksburg and Chickamauga are chronicled. 

CONCEPT IN RELATION TO THE VIEWER: The true horror of war and human sacrifice. 

PROS AND CONS: I literally could not find anything negative to say about this documentary series. I have seen it several times and it never gets old. 

Ken Burns’ documentary of the war between the states set a new standard for the concept of television documentaries and he has never looked back. 

After each successive viewing of the series, what comes across that I find so compelling is the insight into the daily lives and feelings of the people of the age. Something that makes the current American culture appear to be a bunch of wimpy whiners.

This film is a part of my LaserDisc Collection.

This film was viewed while exercising on my recumbent cycle.  A summary of my time spent working out on my journey through movie-land can be found on
