Subject: Ken Burns’ Civil War Documentary and Ken’s Thoughts on the Civil War
Guest: Documentary Filmmaker Ken Burns
Guest Host: Harold Holzer

Summary: Ken Burns discusses his Civil War insights with historian Harold Holzer.

Brett’s Summary: Burns discusses, among other things, how the song Ashoken’s Farewell found its way into the film, his belief that slavery was by far the biggest reason for the war, and his methods of matching song, narration, and still photos to make a monumental documentary.

Civil War Talk Radio airs most Fridays at 12 PM Pacific on World Talk Radio Studio A. Host Gerry Prokopowicz, the History Chair at East Carolina University in Greenville, North Carolina, interviews a guest each week and discusses their interest in the Civil War. Most interviews center around a book or books if the guest is an author. Other guests over the years have included public Historians such as park rangers and museum curators,wargamers, bloggers, and even a member of an American Civil War Round Table located in London, England.

In this series of blog entries, I will be posting air dates, subjects, and guests, and if I have time, I’ll provide a brief summary of the program. You can find all of the past episodes I’ve entered into the blog by clicking on the Civil War Talk Radio category. Each program should appear either on or near the date it was first broadcast.
