This is a repost from back in 2017, the link to the video nolonger works and I want to reshare this movie short based on the Civil War.

Could not find the version I saw 20 plus years ago on PBS, but did find the original film that came out in 1954.

Film Discription:
Two Union soldiers maintaining a position on a riverbank negotiate a one-hour truce with the Confederate soldier manning the opposite bank. During the hour, they gain respect for one another as they trade tobacco,
enjoy some fishing and make an unsettling discovery.
