Civil War Videos?

Anyone know of where we can find some Civil War videos at?  We don't want them to be long and totally boring.  We watched something about Jamestown a while ago and it was good.  We would like something like that.  We are learning about the Civil War using the Civilwar.org site, but they don't seem to have videos.  I think videos help teach.  Some kids are more of a sight learner than a book learner.  Any help would be appreciated.

    The civil war series done by ken burns(I believe). You can get it at most libraries. It's done by PBS.

    Fabulous!!!

     Have you looked on Netflix, HuluPlus or Amazon Instantwatch? Also try PBS, History channel or Military channel websites.

    Have you tried The Civil War Kids Club on youtube?  Or the National Geographic Kids site? Here is a link to a search that I did that you might find useful......
