Jeffrey McClurken, University of Mary Washington, talks about the historical representations (both good and bad) of the Civil War in film. From caricatured stereotypes in movies such as Gone with the Wind, and Birth of a Nation to the thinking man’s historical drama in 1989’s Glory, and 2014’s Lincoln, McClurken gives an academic spin on how the war’s historical narrative in the movies has evolved.
