Mercy Street Jan. 17th, 2016 PBS

Mercy Street Jan. 17th, 2016 PBS

Based on real events, Mercy Street goes beyond the front lines of the Civil War and into the chaotic world of the Mansion House Hospital in Union-occupied Alexandria, Virginia.


The first American drama series in more than a decade from PBS, the Ridley Scott-produced Mercy Street is set during the Civil War, focusing on the doctors and nurses tending to the wounded on both sides. The ensemble cast includes Mary Elizabeth Winstead, Gary Cole, Josh Radnor, and AnnaSophia Robb.

Sounds interesting. One quibble, though. Alexandria was not "occupied" by Union forces. Rather, it was controlled by Union forces. Using the word "occupy" wrongly suggests that the ordinance of secession was legitimate.

So far, I'm enjoying the show .. while it's not quite "The Knick", the plot is engaging and the acting is quite good ..
