I found the program OK. The re-enactments were a little sparse not giving the viewer a proper feel for the magnitude of the march. I was a little disappointed they skimmed over the burning of Columbia with the conclusion he did nto purposely burn the city. That fact is still being debated today. While they did address the atrocities perpetrated on the civilian population they once again IMHO skimmed over the utter devastation to the area, particularly in SC.
Even Sherman said the Carolina campaign was harder than the Georgia campaign, yet it felt like the producers gave more credence to the Ga. march. I also felt they didn't give enough concerning the conditions the Federals encountered in SC, cold, high water, impenetrable swamps etc.
Over all I would give the program a 7 out of 10. More could be said, I learned nothing new, but am glad any CW topic is again being produced.
