Another winner from The Great Courses! This is a broad overview of the Civil War that includes so much more than "just" the battles (e.g., politics, key figures, emancipation, economy, life on the "home front", reconstruction). It was fascinating. Although it doesn't go into the details of even the major wars (when the battle of Gettysburg itself - the actual details of the fighting - gets only about half of one lecture you know breadth is given favor over depth) it provides the best overview of all aspects of the Civil War that I've ever experienced. Exceptional.
