About the video, Deborah Willis said;
"I wanted to frame that concept of history. And also think about man-woman relationships ... I wanted to think about how photographs reflect and reimagine history. I see [the video] as expanding the ideas about the term 'civil war.'"
Joan Baez added;
"The video adds a surprise dimension to Joe Henry’s song, 'Civil War.' Executed with grace and beauty, it turns a corner even Joe could not have anticipated."
