Synopsis

Chronicles the way sex was viewed in the 1860s by following the sexual practices of the men who fought in the Civil War. Traveling to battlefields and brothels, the program examines how soldiers felt about birth control, abortion, premarital sex and infidelity. It examines their ignorance of sexually transmitted diseases, chronicles their wartime relationships and exposes "special privileges" offered to the highest-ranking officers of both armies.
