The Civil War is movingly given human dimension by this documentary based upon the correspondence between Jacob Ritner, an Ohio abolitionist called to serve as an officer in the Union Army, and his wife Emeline, left at home with their four children and the family farm. The couple's devotion to country, and one another, is tellingly recounted. Brian Dennehy narrates. 90 min. Widescreen; Soundtrack: English Dolby Digital stereo; Subtitles: English (SDH).
