A Collection of Free* Civil War Video Lessons for Grades 4 and Up

Following on my American History Series, I’m including here my newest compilation of videos from Amazon Prime video streaming.  If you’re a prime member, you can view these excellent documentaries and reenactments for free. (Hence, the free*.)  Most come from New Dimension Media. I’ve seen videos from theirs a few times, they’re well made and pleasant to watch.

I’m looking forward to watching these videos with Super Hero as soon as we finish the American Revolutionary War video series.

New Dimension Media videos on the American Civil War:

  1. First Blood: Cover three major battles of the Civil War: Fort Summer, Manassas, and Fort Donelson
  2. Killing Grounds: 1862 as the worst year of the war until Lincoln changed its nature with the Emancipation Proclamation
  3. The Confederate Resurgence: Major battles that led up to Gettysburg and Vicksburg, when the war finally turned in the North’s favor

I also found the series “The Great Battles of the Civil War,” from a different publisher.  I put the videos in chronological order so it’s easy for us, and for you, to follow 🙂

  2. The Great Battles of the Civil War – Shiloh – April 6-7, 1862
  3. The Great Battles of the Civil War – Cedar Mountain – August 9, 1862
