The Civil War

 “War means fighting, and fighting means killing.” —Nathan Bedford Forrest
 

The Civil War


Think you know all you need to know about the Civil War?  It remains our most defining national drama, and yet 150 years after its conclusion we continue to debate the truth about its conduct, its legacy, and its leading players—with Abraham Lincoln at the center of it all. Somehow, we keep finding fascinating new perspectives that challenge our previous assumptions. 
 
History has always been one of our favorite subjects here at Daedalus, and we couldn't resist assembling noteworthy and even controversial Civil War–related items here to celebrate its sesquicentennial anniversary.
