Rivers & Rails: Daggers of the Civil War airs on Thursday, December 12th at 9:00 p.m.
I noticed this TV show announcement a few weeks ago; it looks interesting. Hopefully the PBS networks all share broadcast times, as this one was for New Mexico.
…in 1861, those same rivers and rails that had transported prosperity to Tennessee and the South became lifelines for moving men, ammunition and supplies in a war that split the nation. Ultimately whoever controls the rivers and the rails in the Civil War wins the war. This explains why most of the battles in Tennessee took place near the state’s rivers and railways.
