Blood and Fury: America's Civil War

It was the war that divided our nation, a brutal and savage feud that changed America forever. Pitting brother against brother, the Civil War was our country's greatest internal struggle, as friends became foes in a conflict that brought a country to its knees then ultimately reunited it. Now, American Heroes Channel (AHC) transports viewers back to that pivotal era in the exclusive new series, Blood and Fury: America's Civil War. Premiering Wednesday, December 14 at 10/9c, the series chronicles the definitive story of one of the most extraordinary and bloodiest chapters in American history. "At AHC, our programming is anchored by real stories of conflict, action and heroism, none of which defined our nation more than the Civil War," said Kevin Bennett, executive vice president and general manager, American Heroes Channel. "With a high-end, cinematic experience, Blood and Fury: America's Civil War is as dramatic and compelling as any Hollywood blockbuster, taking viewers beyond textbooks, and onto the frontlines of the iconic battles that changed our nation forever. The picturesque nature of the content presented an organic opportunity to travel back in time to the Civil War, and we're thrilled to announce AHC's first-ever virtual reality experience, Civil War: Letter from the Trenches will launch as a companion VR piece." Told from a soldier's point-of-view, Blood and Fury: America's Civil War uses the war's most significant battles- Bull Run, Antietam, Fredericksburg, Gettsyburg, Battle of Nashville and Petersburg - to illuminate both the bigger themes and revel in the smaller, little-known and surprising stories of this brutal, hellish conflict.

Military Channel's new series, "AMERICA: FACTS VS. FICTION" is on a mission to set the record straight. Hosted by former Naval officer and actor Jamie Kaler (TBS' "My Boys"), "AMERICA: FACTS VS. FICTION" is a wake-up call about the surprising hidden facts behind the most familiar and beloved stories from our nation's and military's past, filling in the blanks, debunking the occasional myth, and exploring why we sometimes get our own history, well, slightly wrong. Examining the past with a fresh perspective, this all-new series reveals that the "story" of America is just that - and far more remarkable than we ever thought.
