Restoring THE CIVIL WAR
An interesting short film on the restoration of the Ken Burns classic. . .
Aired: 09/06/201513:57 Rating: NR
To reach a whole new audience with the story of America's greatest crisis, and to offer those who have already seen the series a far more compelling experience, THE CIVIL WAR series has been completely restored to Ultra High Definition – 4K resolution – to bring it up to the standards current audiences demand.

a shot of Shiloh, to steel the nerves
"The source from the water used in making this batch of Battlefield Bourbon is taken from water sources on privately owned property on the Shiloh battlefield, about 125 miles southwest from Franklin, between Savannah, Tenn., and Corinth, Miss. By using water from the battlefield, Hicks is providing an opportunity to actually taste part of this hallowed ground. Each bottle is signed and numbered by Hicks."
[from Brentwood Home Page, "Hicks' second 'Battlefield Bourbon' made with Shiloh water"]
