This clip is from a film about the American Civil War. It begins with a photo of Abraham Lincoln. Cuts to a CU of a cannon firing. Cuts to a painting of a smoking fort in a battle. Cuts to a WS of a field that then superimposes a map over it. Cuts to a portrait of Robert E. Lee. Cuts to a WS of the exterior of a house. Cuts to a shot of the study/ office of the house that pans down to a chess board on a table. Cuts to a shot of Union soldiers holding position in the woods. Shots of cannons firing. A tracking shot of soldiers running through the woods. Cuts to a WS of a river.
