On PBS' American Experience: Death and the Civil War
This is a very special  film written and directed by Ric Burns
It is very rare to learn of how death, war and grieving were dealt with
during the course of the Civil War.
Rather unprecedented and chilling and yet the effects, understanding
and growth of American and the country grew from the experience is hopeful.
Based on the book "This Republic of Suffering" by Drew Gilpin Faust
Edited by Li-Shin Yu
