The Civil War: A Film By Ken Burns

Jen and I have watched a lot of Ken Burns films. Over the last week I finally got her to watch The Civil War. My love and devotion to Star Wars and The Godfather and other great movies aside, I think The Civil War might be the greatest movie ever made.

When I watched it for the first 20 times back in the 90’s it did not hit as close to home as it does now. 30 years ago it felt like we were finally moving beyond that particular struggle. Boy was I a naive idiot.
