"'If I had something like this when I was in high school...'
seems to be the favored response to this excellent multimedia documentary of a
seminal period in the American Civil War. While it couldn't touch the acclaimed
Civil War PBS special on its detail and breadth of scope, this CD-ROM has one
advantage over the television documentary - it's interactive. Players watch
animated battles from a bird's-eye view as the narrator calls the dance for the
blue and red units as they illustrate the progression of the battle. Period
engravings add extra flavor to the narration, while hypertext 'hot spots' allow
the user to access descriptions of the personalities and places that played
crucial roles in the battle."
