Ray 1 Cynthia Ray Mr. E American History 1 June 24, 2017 Ken Burns: The Civil War The Historical film I watched was a Netflix episode 1 of Ken Burns: The civil war. This film was a documentary based on the time of the civil war. It consisted of the time of war and the time of slavery. It started off with explaining the history of the soldiers and how they were drafted for war during that time. As the film went on it spoke on the slavery in America at that time in history. This documentary is a true reflection of history in that time. It described the history of what started slavery, the south kept slavery whereas the North faded it out. It explained the process of how slaves were sold and bought in that day and time. To me it was disgusting how human beings were treated so terrible. It explained how the slaves started to fight back against the masters. The north spoke as if they knew it would eventually come to that stage and questioned if they were even free. Lincoln was elected as president now
