The month is headlined by a special presentation of the 1982 miniseries THE BLUE AND THE GRAY, airing in its entirety on Thanksgiving Day at 8 p.m. ET.

John Hammond stars in this sweeping epic that explores America in the days before and during the Civil War, as a young newspaper correspondent who witnesses such major historical events as First Bull Run, the Battle of Gettysburg, and the assassination of Abraham Lincoln. Stacy Keach, Lloyd Bridges, and Gregory Peck also star.

Here is the complete schedule of films and times.
