Episode Details & Credits
By Kristin Battestella. Ah, hoop skirts mixed with big eighties hair and flair, over the top Southern accents and zealous romances! These staples of television miniseries can make North and South a tough pill for new audiences, but Books 1 and 2 of this series are still the major staple in Civil War dramatizations.
