Reviews:

Computer Gaming World, May 1993

"'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."
