"Downton Abbey" actor Elizabeth McGovern narrates movie on the Civil War which has drawn the ire of neo-Confederates

The link to the story is here:

From the article:
“Civil War: The Untold Story” from Denver’s Great Divide Pictures will air on public TV in 2014. Narrated by “Downton Abbey’s” Elizabeth McGovern, a great “get” for the producers, the documentary will be different from Ken Burns’ 1990 film in several ways:
The difference is that it focuses on the Civil War in the West and the "ongoing political rift."

As the article explains:

Advance word on the documentary, which carries the tag line "It's not just about who we were then, it's about who we are now," has inspired hate mail from neo-Confederate groups on the radical right.
It will likely be interesting.
