American Civil War Movies

Often times, because civil war movies tend to focus on certain topics, like racism, slavery, or injustice we find it difficult to get any kind of useful perspective on the events of the middle of the 19th century.

civil war movies 1861-1865

But for lovers of history and movies, such as we are, it's definitely necessary to get a broader grasp of those dreadful events that led to the bloody war where brother fought against brother.

The Rebirth of a Nation and the Hope for the World

Understanding the lives of our parents who lived during and after the war is not only interesting but life-changing.

The re-building of our nation thereafter marked the greatest time of prosperity that any nation, before and after, has ever seen. Let's visit the lives of the people who re-built America, their ideals, the faith, and even their mistakes.

Let's answer the hard questions, who was right, the North or the South? was the country really a racist country? what kind of "slave owners" were they? and so on..

Here's an important question, how did african-americans feel in those days? what was their role in the civil war?

civil war movies Rev. Allen

Let a leader of the time speak,

Rev. Richard Allen (a former slave), encourages his people:

Let no rancor or ill-will lodge in your [heart] for any bad treatment you may have received from any. If you do, you transgress against God, Who will not hold you guiltless.

He would not suffer it even in His beloved people Israel; and you think He will allow it unto us? . . . I am sorry to say that too many think more of the evil than of the good they have received.

Wow, what a role model whispering in our ear the patience of the Christian faith America has embraced for centuries, a true hero for blacks and whites.

Find great and hard-to-find movies on eBay..

There's a lot of reasons I buy from eBay, here are my top 2.

1. Price, you simply can't beat it. You can even buy most movies for the same price it would take you to rent them from Amazon and iTunes.

2. Find almost any movie. In the process of building World History Movies.com I learned that lesson quite well, eBay is the first place I look when I am trying to find a rare film.
