Jewish Soldiers In Blue & Gray Previous Broadcasts

KQED World: Wed, May 23, 2012 -- 7:00 AM

This program explores the little-known sacrifices American Jews made for both the Union and the Confederacy during the Civil War. Recently unearthed personal narratives shed new light on this fascinating chapter in American history and powerfully illustrate the unique role Jews played on the battlefields and the home front. Narrated by Oscar-nominated screenwriter John Milius (Apocalypse Now) and with Sam Waterston providing the voice of President Lincoln, the documentary chronicles Major General Ulysses S.Grant's infamous 1862 mandate to expel Jewish residents from Union-controlled land and shares the story of President Lincoln's doctor-turned-Union spy.
