Season 1  |  Episode 3  |  The History Channel  |  March 18, 2019

The Civil War, one of the most defining moments in American history, tore a nation apart, pitting North against South - brother against brother. Over the course of four years, more than 750,000 military and civilian lives were sacrificed to make the United States a more perfect union, where the human rights of every person are guaranteed. With unprecedented access to government and private archives and using state-of-the-art technology, over 500 rare and compelling black and white photographs have been painstakingly colourised to illustrate the story of the Civil War in breathtaking detail. This episode examines the cultural and political tensions that ultimately explode into the most storied and bloodied war ever to be fought on US soil.
