Historical Background

Watch the video to get some background about the time period which serves as the setting for the story. As you watch, remember what a Civil War means to a country- how it divides a country into two sides that have beliefs so strongly opposed that they will go to war rather than maintain the country. For some families, it means brother fights against brother.
