as an american i'm very depressed right now.
for my part, i would have carpel tunnel before i could type enough to explain my thoughts on the issue.
it is unique in our country to still debate the war 150 years later when other nations and princepalities of the world have had civil wars that are closed subjects for the most part,.. "this is why, this is how, this is who won"...
its truely american to complicate something so thoroughly that 150 years later we can still argue about it.
in a nut shell,.... the US civil war was brough about by both economic and moral conditions,... economics and morals have seldom if ever meshed well,... thus it was, is and will always be confusing and conveluted.
a lot like america today,... we cannot reconcile our economics with our morals.
