The Civil War generation interprets the conflict -- The Confederate War on film -- Hollywood and the North's Civil War -- The ascendancy of Confederate themes in recent Civil War art.
Describes how the depiction of the Civil War in motion pictures and works of art distorts the reality of the war, often emphasizing how the South fought for an admirable but hopeless cause and minimizing the Union effort to hold the republic together.
