Summary
Beginning with a dramatic indictment of slavery, this first eposide dramatically evokes the causes of the war. Here are the burning questions of Union and states' rights, the story of John Brown at Harper's Ferry, the election of Abraham Lincoln in 1860, the firing on Fort Sumter, and the jubilant rush to arms on both sides. The episode comes to a climax with the disastrous Union defeat at Manassas, where both sides now learn it is to be a very long war
