An amazing southern journey through the past and present of the Civil War. Along the way we meet die-hard re-enactors, the oldest living confederate widow, slavery deniers, rednecks, patriots, racial divisions, a Scarlett O'Hara impersonator and possibly the coolest general store/museum on the planet. In the process, we learn that history is not static; the multitude of interpretations, re-interpretations and myth-busting corrections offers a fascinating and at time terrifying picture of how far, or how little, we've progressed as a country.
