Video synopsis from the History Channel website:
The Civil War rages. The formidable Confederate army cannot match the Union's mastery of technology; railroads, supply lines and the telegram become new weapons in a modern war. The Transcontinental Railroad unites the nation and transforms the Heartland. Farmers settle the continent; their cattle replace wild buffalo as king of the Plains. The Cowboy becomes a new American icon.

I have found the various History Channel video series to be very helpful when introducing a new unit and an easy way to provide my students with visual references.
