The Civil War, one of the most defining moments in American history, tore the 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. BLOOD AND GLORY: THE CIVIL WAR IN COLOR brings this important historical event to life in a two-part documentary special as never seen before.

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 colorized to illustrate the story of the Civil War in breathtaking detail.
