    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.......

    Welcome, mate!
    Meddle not in the affairs of dragons, for you are crunchy and taste good with ketchup.

    Abusing Yellow is meant to be a labor of love, not something you sell to the highest bidder.
