NASHVILLE (BP) -- The Civil War was fought 150 years ago, but without a small band of abolitionists driven by their Christian faith, the war might never have happened.

That's the conclusion of a three-part PBS docudrama that will premier Tuesday (Jan. 8th). It doesn't shy away from recounting the religious beliefs of abolitionists William Lloyd Garrison, John Brown, Frederick Douglass, Angelina Grimke and Harriet Beacher Stowe. They believed slavery was a sin, and they set out to cause its demise. In turn, they helped change a nation.

I'm looking forward to this crossing the pond. (Wonder if Sky Atlantic will pick it up...)
