Best Answer Jackie Lynnley says
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
Such a shame too when I think Americans were pretty much becoming one on common ground.
And your most definitely spot on, Jackie! Being first you of course get the gold medal. Your poem Steel Magnolia expresses just one of so many reasons why this world defining conflict comes in second.
Yeahhh Jackie! You are such a smart lady.
That is great Alastar & yes there were so many things about the Civil War wasn't there? My magnolia was still although steel may have been better I didn't want to plagiarize. lol I even put a few bullets thru her for guys like you! Good to see yo

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.

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.
Your right in that the Revolutionary War lasted a long time and involved a lot of counties. Rather important to world history too. The true answer is coming up Phyllis, stay tuned!
I am holding my breath. Mention history and quiz me on it is exciting for me.
Thanks Phyllis; they aren't giving me a box in my comments so had to come here!

WW I is a good answer, but does it have something to do with Ghengis Khan?
Bronze is good and you earned it, stevarino. That is some excellent info on the Chinese conflicts. I saw where you've published a hub on the neglected Stone's River battle. ASAP read and comment here!

Writer Fox says
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.
Does that mean you will choose mine as the best answer?
Fox....This means... I got the answer right and you need to send me a stuffed, cuddly fox as a prize.

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.
