Confederate Vol. 2
Civil War Minutes: Confederate reveals little know facts and stories about major Confederate players in the Civil War. Viewers will discover why few photographs exist of General Robert E. Lee and get an eyewitness account of J.E.B. Stuart’s death.
Though people often remember the generals and commanders from a major war, its outcome also depends largely on the nameless soldiers in the front lines. Illuminating little known history, Civil War Minutes: Confederate Volume II features rarely told stories of both the famous and average Confederate soldiers in the Civil War.
In the film, you will see many artifacts including a Confederate musket recovered from the bottom of the sea after 100 years in the belly of a sunken Confederate blockade runner as well as rifles and ammunition used by both Union and Confederate soldiers during the Civil War. Also get an eyewitness account of the fall of the Union’s Fort Sumter from a Confederate soldier’s report to his hometown newspaper.
Featuring Michael Kraus, who served as Military History Advisor for Miramax Films’ Cold Mountain and Military Coordinator for New Line Cinema’s film Gettysburg. Kraus’ career includes working as a historian for several A&E television Civil War Journal episodes.
