Title: CAUSE--1861
Movie ID: VT3066
Movie Number: 3066
Description: Beginning with a dramatic indictment of slavery, this first episode dramatically evokes the cause of war, from the Cotton Kingdom of the South to the northern abolitionists who opposed it. Here are the burning questions of Union and States' Rights. John Brown at Harper's Ferry, and the election of Abraham Lincoln in 1860, the firing on Fort Sumter and the jubilant rush to arms on both sides. Along the way, the series' major figures are introduced--Lincoln, Frederick Douglass, Robert E. Lee, Ulysses S. Grant and a host of less well-known but equally vivid characters. The episode comes to a climax with the disasterous Union defeat at Manassas, where both sides now learn it is to be a very long war.
