Civil War History

               Civil War History Film Clips

Lincoln is Elected and the Markets Tank (Harper's Weekly, 1860)

- from Amazon

"...It is said that the panic grew out of the fears aroused by the ferment in the Southern States. Although at New Orleans all is quiet, and everybody seeks peace, throughout the states of Alabama, Mississippi, South Carolina and Georgia, great excitement prevails; and if any reliance can be placed upon the assertions of the politicians and the newspapers of those states, the election of Lincoln will not be tolerated without a struggle. What that form of struggle may take remains to be seen."


The Civil War Begins (NY Times, 1861)

"The ball has opened. War is inaugurated. The batteries of Sullivan's Island, Morris Island and other points were opened on Fort Sumpter at 4 'oclock this morning... The answer to General Beauregard's demand by Major Anderson was that he would surrender when his supplies were exhausted, that is, if he was not reinforced."

Here are the dispatches from Charleston that appeared on the front page of the New York Times on April 13, 1861.


The Battle of Bull Run (Harper's Weekly, 1861)

Here is an eyewitness report of the Union rout from the first battle of the Civil War, Bull Run (July 21, 1861):

"Leaving my carriage, I went to a high point of ground and saw, by the dense cloud of dust that rose over each of the three roads by which the three columns of the [Federal] Army had advanced, that they were all on the retreat. Sharp discharges of canon in their rear indicated that they were being pursued."


Why The Rebels Fought (Confederate Veteran Magazine, 1918)

Fed-up with decades of articles and editorials declaring that he and his Confederate comrades fought tirelessly for four years in order to preserve and advance the cause of slavery, elderly Southern veteran, James Callaway, put pen to paper in order explain that this was not the case. Equipped with numerous passages from A Soldier's Recollections and an artificial Lincoln quote, Calloway argued that it was Northern aggression that swelled the Confederate ranks.


Mathew Brady at Antietam (NY Times, 1862)

An anonymous reviewer tells his readers about the mournful spirit that dominated each room at the Matthew Brady Gallery where he attended a unique exhibit of the photographer's Civil War pictures:

- from Amazon:

"At the door of his gallery hangs a little placard 'The Dead of Antietam'. Crowds of people are constantly going up the stairs; follow them...there is a terrible fascination about it that draws one near these pictures, and makes you loath to leave them. You will see hushed, reverend groups standing around these weird copies of carnage, bending down to look in the pale faces of the dead, chained by the strange spell that dwells in dead men's eyes."

It was on the first day at Gettysburg that the Confederates made a terrible mistake. Read about it here.


The Great Civil War Battles (Pageant Magazine, 1958)

The second portion of Bruce Catton's article (see above) concerning the necessary knowledge required in order to justifiably call your self a "Civil War Buff" was this short piece listing the greatest battles of the war. Accompanying the five brief thumb-nail summaries is a map of the South Eastern U.S., highlighted with red stars, which serve to identify where the blood poured.
