A new segment for the independently produced program VOICES IN AMERICA, hosted by James Earl Jones, will feature a look at the history and moments of the U.S. Civil War.
Battles like Gettysburg, Antietam, and Chickamauga made the Civil War one of America's bloodiest, and most deadliest, wars. Claiming more than 620,000 lives, the Civil War saw armies from both the North and South lay a path of destruction in America, to both people, lands, and buildings alike. Friends fought friends and families battled families as America attempted to forge and bring hope to a brighter future.
The program will feature stories from both the Northern and Southern sides of the Civil War. This segment will also look at major events before, during, and just after the Civil War that helped shaped the nation, including but not limited to: the fight over slavery, the Gettysburg Address, General Lee's surrender at the Appomattox Courthouse, and the assassination of President Abraham Lincoln shortly after the war ended.
Independently produced, VOICES IN AMERICA is distributed to Public Television Stations across the United States, but is not affiliated with or produced by APT or PBS.
