Guns of the Civil War


Guns of the Civil War

1993 NR  161 minutes

Charles Martin Smith hosts this three-part series that focuses on the weapons used in the Civil War. Many historians believe these weapons were more advanced than the tactics used in battle. Chapter 1 covers the stories behind the weapons used; Chapter 2 focuses on the desperate search for weapons in the heat of battle; and Chapter 3 covers the introduction of artillery guns such as the Parrott Gun, the Gatling Gun and the Howitzer.
