Awesome!! History teaches us things and this is one lesson I hope we never repeat in our nation
Pretty amazing...in less than four minutes...wow!
Idk tengauge, if the SEC keeps it up...
Saw this at the Lincoln Library in Springfield. Pretty cool
1.2 MILLION casualties. think about that.
To this day, the Battle of Antietam is still the single-bloodiest day in American history.
Twenty Three Thousand Casualties. In one day.
There were roughly 600k dead in a population of 30M. That means 2% of the overall population was killed (or died from a resulting infection/disease) during the Civil If you extrapolate that out to today's population of 300M, it would mean 6 MILLION dead. It's not even a number you can comprehend. "Amazing" is such an overused word that it's almost lost its meaning, but it's truly amazing that the country came through the Civil War.
Consider the Battle of Gettysburg had 46K casulties in 3 days while the US lost 55K in over 20 years in Viet Nam.
Yah, if these loses were to occur today, the results would be catastrophic. Sort of crazy. I was just in Atlanta and visited a few Cival War sites, the historic nature of some of these events are just over welming at times.
Even battles such as Chancellorsville had a combined 24,000 in casualties, Chickamauga had 34,000, Spotsylvania another 30,000, Battle of the Wilderness 25,000, Shiloh and Stones River both had 23,500, and then you also had absolute slaughters like Cold Harbor where Grant ran right at Lee's fortifications and lost another 13,000 in men comparison to Lee's 4,000.
The coolest thing in Atlanta is out at Stone Mountain, where one of the battles of Atlanta took place (the second the south lost) and a skirmish from the first battle took place. It's usually called a followup of Kennesaw, but it's actually part of the same long campaign to take Atlanta before Sherman's march to the sea. I forget what they called it, but they had a huge painting on a circular frame, and rotated the audience (movies before movies). It dated back to the late 1860s or early 1870s, and was just impressive. It showed all the stages of the second battle for Atlanta, and you could look at it and just see where the Gone with the Wind's set decorators got some of their ideas. Really cool thing to see. My uncle (from near Atlanta) still refers to the Civil War as the War of Northern Agression. That must be why the SEC has to cheat to win. :)
