The Civil War: A Film by Ken Burns and Lesson Plan Set

The Civil War is a nine-part series that explores the most important conflict in our nation’s history. It saw the end of slavery and was the watershed of a new political and economic order. Heralded as an unforgettable introduction to the conflict when it was released in 1990, the film draws on archival images of 16,000 photographs, along with paintings, lithographs, and headlines, newsreel footage of Civil War veterans, evocative live cinematography of battle sites, interviews with historians, and numerous first-person accounts. The materials on PBS’s Ken Burns in the Classroom include video excerpts, lesson plans and other resources.
