Produced with the cooperation of leading Civil War historian Winston Groom, best-selling author of Forrest Gump, Lee and Grant is a personal, revealing look at two iconic leaders of the Civil War. Delving deep into the lives of these two titans of American history, this dramatic special uncovers surprising details about the bold choices made and almost godlike power wielded by Ulysses S.Grant and Robert E. Lee for the Union and Confederacy, respectively. As each proved their military mettle on decisive battlefields such as those at Manassas, Vicksburg and Gettysburg, they became figureheads for their causes, and now over 150 years later are destined to be forever linked as representing the two opposing forces that fought over the future of America. It was Lee and Grant who led their respective armies to their greatest victories, and it would ultimately be Lee and Grant who would bring the war to an end, in the parlour of a small house in Appomattox. This feature-length documentary offers a unique perspective on the American civil war, exploring how two men irrevocably changed the course of their country s history.
