Mercy Street

Alexandria, Virginia, 1862. Mary Phinney, a staunch New England abolitionist, and Emma Green, a naïve Confederate belle, collide at Mansion House, the Green family's luxury hotel that has been transformed into a Union Army hospital. Ruled under martial law, the border town of Alexandria is now the melting pot of the region, filled with soldiers, civilians, female volunteers, doctors, wounded men from both sides, runaway slaves, prostitutes, speculators, and spies.

From executive producer Ridley Scott, Mercy Street goes beyond the battlefield and into the lives of Americans on the Civil War homefront as they face the unprecedented challenges of one of the most turbulent times in our nation's history.

Includes approximately 30 minutes of special features.

"Gary Cole, Peter Garety, and Mary Elizabeth Winstead star in PBS' brilliant six-part Civil War miniseries about two volunteer nurses from opposite sides of the conflict who work at the same Virginia hospital." - Philly.com

"The show does the Downton thing well, focusing on multiple overlapping story lines, different groups of characters, and featuring sharp writing and a top-notch cast" - I Want My Two Dollars

"stunning" - Philly.com

"This series is not about battles and glory, it's about the drama and unexpected humor of everyday life behind the front lines. It's a fresh twist on an iconic story, one that resonates with larger themes we still struggle with today." - High Def Degest

"absorbing" "Part medical drama and part sudser, "Mercy Street" benefits from a crackerjack cast that includes Josh Radnor as a wily surgeon and Gary Cole as a morally conflicted plantation owner." - Courier Post

3.5 out of 4 stars
"Mercy Street is an historical American medical drama that takes its cues from British period pieces…Highly recommended." - Video Librarian
