The Civil War In Four Minutes May 23, 2007 3 comments [Hat tip to Ralph Luker at HNN via Manan Ahmed] I actually watched the whole thing, which should be sufficient evidence that I am going insane. 3 comments… add one Craig Warren May 23, 2007, 11:37 am I watched the entire film, too. Once it started, I found it hard to look away. (Maybe it was the Ken Burns music.) Apparently the map was made by the Lincoln Presidential Museum: http://www.lincolnlibraryandmuseum.com/m5.htm “To inform and illustrate the scale, scope and tragedy of the Civil War, the museum’s Civil War in Four Minutes was created.” Does this statement seem a bit counter-intuitive to anyone else? Reply Kevin Levin May 23, 2007, 6:50 pm Craig, — There is indeed something mesmerizing about it. Not only is the statement you cite “counterintuitive” its absurd. Reply Al Brophy May 23, 2007, 7:16 pm Kevin–thanks for this. Wow, what an illustration of the power of maps. Sorry to see that you tube says it the video will be deleted soon.
