We are approaching the 150th anniversary of the Civil War. This blog is intended to chronicle over the next five years the causes, battles, events and effects as we reach the anniversaries. The War Between the States had a great effect on our nation. The interpretation of the Constitution and many other things were completely different afterward. Even the death of over 650,000 men had a great effect. There are many lessons that we can learn from the mistakes of those who came before that are very important to us today. Over the next few months we will look at some of the causes and reasons of the war, and the secession of the various states. Once the war begins we will look at the battles, tactics and men of the bloodiest war in American history.
