In this 1954 educational documentary tightly condenses the American Civil War into a snug fifteen minutes.
Beginning with John Brown’s revolt at Harper’s Ferry, the film uses artwork, photographs, dramatizations and panoramas of significant locations.
As we move from the attack on Fort Sumter to the Battle of Antietam to Lee’s great defeat at Gettysburg, the chorus of “When Johnny Comes Marching Home” is sung heartily in between the narration.
