Step behind the battle lines with generals on both sides of the Civil War as AMERICAN EXPERIENCE explores the military prowess and political ambition of Union victor Ulysses S. Grant and his Confederate foe, Robert E. Lee. The first DVD in this set portrays General Ulysses S. Grant. Remembered as a brilliant military strategist whose ruthlessness earned him the nickname "Unconditional Surrender," General Grant was the greatest Union hero of the Civil War. The second DVD is about Robert E. Lee, the scourge of the Union and hero of the Confederacy. Now, almost 150 years after his death, Lee is still a source of fascination and, for some, veneration. This AMERICAN EXPERIENCE film examines the life, achievements, and reputation of these unforgettable generals.
