FRAMINGHAM, Mass. (AP) Some Civil War sites and events in Northern states remain largely ignored as the nation celebrates the war's 150th anniversary.

i think this is true .I grew up in the north and we really didn't pay much attention or celebrated it.
Now that i live in the southern state ,I see Confederate flags and see many reenactments about the war.
i also sense a mistrust of northerners in many places I go.
