Civil War in 4 minutes December 22, 2007

Posted by Administrator in history.

via the hapless idiot at Pharyngula, comes this short four-minute animation showing graphically the expanse of the South from 1861 to its zenith in mid1862, followed by the inevitable swamping by the northern forces in mid 1865. Punctuated by explosions denoting battles, the racing tally of casualties in the lower right hand corner, and the haunting strings of Ashokan Farewell so well known from Ken Burns’ documentary, it makes for an illustrative and sobering quick-view of America’s first Civil War.


(WARNING: Other videos at the site hosting this animation may be NSFW.  If you can find a more appropriate host for this animation, let me know and I’ll update the link.)
