The Civil War in Four Minutes
We are the people to whom the past is forever speaking.
We listen to it because we cannot help ourselves, for the past speaks to us with many voices.
Far out of that dark nowhere which is the time before we were born, men who were flesh of our flesh and bone of our bone went through fire and storm to break a path to the future.
We are part of that future they died for.
They are part of the past that brought the future.
What they did–the lives they lived, the sacrifices they made, the stories they told and the songs they sang and, finally, the deaths they died–make up a part of our own experience.
It is as real as something that happened last week.
It is a basic part of our heritage as Americans.

It features Scott Thomas as General Seth Thomas. Scott is clutching the sword I gave him in a ceremony in camp upon his ‘retirement’ from Lincoln’s Generals.
