The Civil War: A Film By Ken Burns
May 22, 2012  | By David Bianculli
 
It's Memorial Day upcoming this weekend — the holiday enacted to honor American War veterans after The Civil War. So there really is no better time to revisit Ken Burn's The Civil War, the landmark 1990 documentary miniseries that put him and his company on the map (on both sides of the Mason-Dixon Line.) It's maybe the essential documentary for a video library. You can hear my original review of the Ken Burns epic -- back when Burns was a largely unknown name -- from NPR's Fresh Air with Terry Gross, back on Sept. 21, 1990. It's one of my "Fresh Air Faves," and available for listening HERE.  —DB
