Came across this recently and thought it would be of interest. For some reason Episode 2 is missing.....

I noticed some of the footage comes from the Antietam doc by Historical Films but most of it looks to be shot for the project.

Technically fiction because the main character is not a real person (I believe) but it's a documentary about soldier life. The acting is hit and miss.

I enjoyed those videos. They helped to put a human face on the men that fought the war. When studying the war its can be forgotten that most of the tasks preformed by soldiers were mundane , such as cooking, marching , preparing camp. I like the part were the reasons for fighting are discussed. I'm glad the NPS choose the dialogue they did and it wasn't just men saying I'm fighting for the union and to free the slaves etc like in the movies. The reality was much different and they did a good job portraying that.
