Civil War Video

While there’s certainly room to expand on the details of each of the major battles of the Civil War, the Civil War in Four Minutes video presentation from The Abraham Lincoln Presidential Museum is one of the most engaging visualizations of historic conflict I’ve ever seen. It shows a visual representation of where the North and South divided the country, shifting control of territory throughout the war, and highlights of various battles. In watching the video, it appears the North gaining control of the Mississippi was a clear turning point.
