The Blue and the Gray

The Blue and the Gray is a sprawling adaptation of a story concept by Civil War historian Bruce Catton. The drama begins in 1859, with young war correspondent-to-be John Geyser meeting future Union officer Jonas Steele at the trial of abolitionist John Brown. They are reunited two years later during the presidential campaign of Abraham Lincoln and are eyewitnesses at the battle of Bull Run.
