    Death and the Civil War: American Experience Drawing heavily on This Republic of Suffering, historian and Harvard president Drew Gilpin Faust's acclaimed book, this documentary explores a critical but largely overlooked aspect of the Civil War experience: the immense and varied implications of the war's staggering and unprecedented death toll. The war created a veritable "republic of suffering," as landscape architect Frederick Law Olmsted described the wounded and dying arriving at Union hospital ships on the Virginia Peninsula. The shattering death toll transformed hundreds of thousands of individual lives and the life of the nation as well, from its understanding of the rights and responsibilities of citizenship to the profound struggle of a deeply religious culture to reconcile these events with a belief in a benevolent God. The film examines the increasingly lethal years of the war, focusing primarily on several key battles and their corpse-strewn aftermaths, and concludes with a section on the postwar efforts toward reburial and remembrance. It premieres in conjunction with the 150th anniversary of Antietam, the bloodiest one-day battle in American history. duration 1:56:46   STEREO TV14 (Secondary audio: DVI)

Within "liberated zones" near the city of Aleppo, the rebels not only fight the Syrian Army, but struggle against each other in a bitter rivalry between secular and Islamist fighters. The Battle For Syria is an unprecedented portrait of Syria's rebel leaders, the toll of the war on civilians and the outlines of a potential struggle for power in post-Assad Syria. Also this hour: a look inside the House of Assad. duration 56:46   STEREO TVPG-L

    Truly CA: Our State, Our Stories [#404] Fruits of War Fruits of War explores a devastating cycle of violence that has plagued El Salvador for over 30 years. The film follows 4 reformed gang members - Bullet, Rebel, Weazel, and Duke - who came to the United States as child refugees from El Salvador's bloody civil war, settled in Los Angeles' tough east side, and eventually got involved in street gangs. In an effort to suppress an epidemic of gang violence, the US began an aggressive policy of deporting undocumented gang members with felony records. When these 4 men arrive back in El Salvador, they discover a country ravaged by war, and facing a new wave of violence as the LA street gangs take root in their homeland. The government, with support from the US, begins a brutal crackdown on the gangs, and these 4 men find themselves in the middle of a conflict eerily similar to the civil war - pitting the army and police against thousands of El Salvador's poorest residents, now members of the gangs. As they come to terms with their two countries' violent histories, these former gang members redirect their lives towards helping young people deal with this legacy.
