Abraham and Mary Lincoln :   Publication: [United States] : WGBH Educational Foundation : | Distributed by PBS Home Video, 2001 . 3 videocassettes of 3 (360 min.) : | Copyright: no reg. , Special features include: interviews with the producer and cinematographer, audio descriptions, audio navigation, three-part featurette, interactive map, videos interview of historians, timelines, essays, photo galleries, and teacher's guide. | Videocassette 1. This film begins in 1882 when Mary Todd Lincoln is an old woman living near Springfield, Illinois. It backtracts to tell the story of the couple's childhoods his in a remote backwoods log cabin, hers in a wealthy Kentucky home. And it describes their courtship. Mary sets her heart on the raw, socially awkward Lincoln, saying later. “ He’ll be president of the United States on day. If I had not thought so I never would have married him. “ Their partnership is both tempestuous and passionate. She has a temper, and he suffers bouts of depression. But they share a powerful political ambition that sends Lincoln to the House of Representatives and later, with the country splitting apart over slavery, propels him to run for president. On election night, when the results finally come in, Lincoln goes home and tells his wife, “Mary, Mary, we are elected” | Videcassette 2: When the Lincolns arrive in Washington in 1861, the country is breaking apart. The country's president-elect is unknown, untested, and mistrusted. His wife, the daughter of a Southern slave owner, is suspected of being a Confederate sympathizer, As Lincoln leads a confused and frightened people through the most terrible conflict in their history, disaster strikes his own home: Willie Lincoln -- the child Mary says will be the hope and stay of her old age – dies. Mary, though tormented by her grief, visits wounded soldiers and helps slaves who have made their way to the North. Losing her grip on sanity, she also turns to spiritualists for comfort. Her husband, bowed down with sorrow, never loses sight of the tragedy consuming the nation. With the war going badly in the east, enlistments drying up, and morale low, Lincoln takes a step that changes the country forever and in ding so he changes himself. On January 1, 1863 the sixteenth president issues the Emancipation Proclamation liberating millions of Americans from bondage. The Move turns the Civil War from a conflict over union into a struggle for freedom. 1/2 in. Date: 2001 Availability: No items available:

15. The Civil War : a film by Ken Burns   Publication: PBS 1990 . 4 discs (9 programs) , This video documentary program, consisting of nine episodes of the civil war, was produced by the public Broadcasting system (PBS). The program begins with the bitter regional conflict between Union and States' rights and ends with the struggle over the meaning of freedom in America. | Episode One: The Cause (1861). Beginning with a searing indictment of slavery, this first episode dramatically evokes the causes of the war, from the Cotton Kingdom of the South to the northern abolitionists who opposed it. Here are the burning questions of Union and States’ rights, John Brown at Harper’s Ferry, the election of Abraham Lincoln in 1860, the firing on Fort Sumter and the jubilant rush to arms on both sides. Along the way the series’ major figures are introduced: Abraham Lincoln, Frederick Douglass, Robert E. Lee, Ulysses S. Grant and a host of lesser-known but equally vivid characters. The episode comes to a climax with the disastrous Union defeat at Manassas, Virginia, where both sides now learn it is to be a very long war. | Episode Two: A Very Bloody Affairs(1862). 1862 saw the birth of modern warfare and the transformation of Lincoln’s war to preserve the Union into a war to emancipate the slaves. Episode Two begins with the political infighting that threatened to swamp Lincoln’s administration and then follows Union General George McClellan’s ill-fated campaign on the Virginia Peninsula, where his huge army meets a smaller but infinitely more resourceful Confederate force. During this episode we witness the battle of ironclad ships, partake of camp life, and watch slavery begin to crumble. We meet Ulysses S. Grant, whose exploits come to a bloody climax at the Battle of Shiloh in Tennessee. The episode ends with rumors of Europe’s readiness to recognize the Confederacy. | Episode Three: Forever Free (1862). This episode charts the dramatic events that led to Lincoln’s decision to set the slaves free. Convinced by July 1862 that emancipation was now morally and militarily crucial to the future of the Union, Lincoln must wait for a victory to issue his proclamation. But as the year wears on there are no Union victories to be had, thanks to the brilliance of Stonewall Jackson and Robert E. Lee. The episode comes to a climax in September 1862 with Lee’s invasion of Maryland. On the banks of Antietam Creek, the bloodiest day of the war takes place, followed shortly by the brightest: the emancipation of the slaves. | Episode Four: Simply Murder (1863). The nightmarish Union disaster at Fredericksburg comes to two climaxes that spring: at Chancellorsville in May, where Lee wins his most brilliant victory but loses Stonewall Jackson; and at Vicksburg, where Grant’s attempts to take the city by siege are stopped. During the episode we learn of fierce Northern opposition to Lincoln’s Emancipation Proclamation, the miseries of regimental life and the increasing desperation of the Confederate homefront. As the episode ends, Lee decides to invade the North again to draw Grant’s forces away from Vicksburg. | Episode Five: The Universe of Battle (1863). This episode opens with a dramatic account of the turning point of war: the Battle of Gettysburg, the greatest ever fought in the Western Hemisphere. For three days 150,000 men will fight to the death in the Pennsylvania countryside, culminating in Pickett’s legendary charge. This extended episode then goes on to chronicle the fall of Vicksburg, the New York draft riots, the first use of black troops, and the western battles at Chickamauga, Georgia and Chattanooga, Tennessee. The episode closes with the dedication of a new Union cemetery at Gettysburg in November, where Abraham Lincoln struggles to put into words what is happening to his people. | Episode Six: Valley of the Shadow of Death (1864). Episode six begins with a biographical comparison of Ulysses S. Grant and Robert E. Lee and then chronicles the extraordinary series of battles that pitted the two generals against each other from the wilderness to Petersburg in Virginia. In 30 days, the two armies lose more men than both sides have lost in three years of war. With Grant and Lee finally deadlocked at Petersburg, we visit the ghastly hospitals north and south and follow General Sherman’s Atlanta campaign through the mountains of north Georgia. As the horrendous casualty lists increase, Lincoln’s chances for re-election begin to dim, and with them the possibility of Union victory. | Episode Seven: Most Hallowed Ground (1864).The episode begins with the presidential election of 1864 that sets Abraham Lincoln against his old commanding general, George McClellan. The stakes are nothing less than the survival of the Union itself: with Grant and Sherman stalled at Petersburg and Atlanta, opinion in the North has turned strongly against the war. But 11th-hour victories at Mobile Bay, Atlanta, and the Shenandoah Valley tilt the election to Lincoln and the Confederacy’s last hope for independence dies. In an ironic twist, poignantly typical of the Civil War, Lee’s Arlington mansion is turned into a Union military hospital and the estate becomes Arlington National Cemetery, the Union’s most hallowed ground. | Episode Eight: War is All Hell (1865).The episode begins with William Tecumseh Sherman’s brilliant march to the sea, which brings the war to the heart of Georgia and the Carolinas and spells the end of the Confederacy. In March, following Lincoln’s second inauguration, first Petersburg and then Richmond finally fall to Grant’s army. Lee’s tattered Army of Northern Virginia flees westward towards a tiny crossroads town called Appomattox Court House. There the dramatic and deeply moving surrender of Lee to Grant takes place. The episode ends in Washington where John Wilkes Booth begins to dream of vengeance for the South. | Episode Nine: The Better Angels of Our Nature (1865).This extraordinary final episode of The Civil War begins in the bittersweet aftermath of Lee’s surrender and then goes on to narrate the horrendous events of five days later when, on April 14, Lincoln is assassinated. After chronicling Lincoln’s poignant funeral, the series recounts the final days of the war, the capture of John Wilkes Booth and the fates of the Civil War’s major protagonists. The episode then considers the consequences and meaning of a war that transformed the country from a collection of states to the nation we are today. Date: 1990 Availability: No items available:
