    I've studied the Civil War mainly from the Southern perspective. First because I'm Southern. But also because of how they accomplished so much with so little (militarily). Also, I believe that the outcome was almost pre-determined. Shelby Foote was once asked if he thought that the war was inevitable. He replied that it wasn't so much inevitable, but it was necessary.......

    I see you got here. Welcome mate. Nice to see another friendly face. With you here & Shek back from his trip to the Middle East the Civil War threads might warm up again. Have fun on WAB (oh, and check out the 'unofficial survival guide', it helps).

    Welcome, mate!

    Welcome to the WAB Memphis. There is nothing on the ACW that is not known here on the Site. I'm sure some of the experts have been re-born as they are almost there in body and soul when they speak of it.
