Four Minutes

This weekend, I checked out a fascinating video entitled, "The Civil War in Four Minutes" after hearing about it on Slate's Political Gabfest. Created for the Lincoln Library and Museum and shown on a large movie screen to visitors, it's an powerful representation of the continuously shifting lines of battle (you really get a sense of what Sherman's March to the Sea did to the Confederacy) and the horrific casualties that were inflicted by both sides.
