"On the 150th anniversary of the start of the Civil War at South Carolina's Fort Sumter, Judy Woodruff has an excerpt from Ken Burns' 'The Civil War' and discusses the conflict's causes and legacy with Harvard University's Drew Gilpin Faust, Howard University's Edna Medford, and the University of South Carolina's Walter Edgar."
