      Summary of Ken Burns: The Civil War  

      The Civil War is a nine-part documentary that details the time line of The Civil War from the very early events, events that began a long time before the first shot was fired till the aftermath and the post-war lives of some of the combatants. The story of The Civil War is told through the personal diaries and public statements of countless people, from privates and civilians, to generals, and right up to the leaders of the both sides. The documentary also makes extensive use of "The Burns Effect", which is the term given to the panning across a still image. It's such a simple technique, but one that helps give visual flair to what would otherwise be such a boring piece.
