    The civil war had a common bond. Slavery was the South stronghold, and fought to keep their slaves with them. The North fought for freedom of slavery.

    The battleground, in this country, has already begun. It is not only fought in the alleys, of citie

    Okay - I will guess that it is the American Revolutionary War, 1775 - 1783. I think it is the most read and studied (after WWII) because it involved Britain and the 13 colonies plus Indian allies on both side, France, Spain, and the Dutch Republic.

    WW I is a good answer, but does it have something to do with Ghengis Khan?

    So true, aesta1.The detritus of Vietnam was more than just physical destruction. Those men, and women, came home in many instances to a hostile public against them. That wrong was righted with time in some resects thank goodness.

    WWI is an excellent guess, Writer Fox. For new inventions, casualties and mano a moan mayhem and blood few other wars come close to it. Another one that always has something new to discover.

    Your intuition earns you the silver, effer! As to the question #1 this is a survey for Family Feud (joshin') and the prize is all mine in hearing from you!

    Good guess for good reasons, BrianRD. The Vietnam War really came home to me as a little boy the day I opened up the latest Life mag in 1969...the issue with one week's killed in 'Nam. Haunting face memories to this day.

    Unexpected answer, Awesome Harry. Not in a military vein but little doubt correct, despite the pro and con controversy concerning Global Warming
