The colorization...

Our goal is to become the leading resource for every researcher seeking historical information and opinions relating to the American Civil War.

The American Civil War

The American Civil War, arguably the most traumatic event in the history of the United States, was fought from 1861 to 1865, and was the culmination of sectional issues which deeply divided the country between a pro-Federal government North and a pro-states rights, in the pro-slavery South, whose eleven states formed a breakaway government called the Confederate States of America. The costliest war in terms of human lives, the American Civil War claimed in excess of 620,000 battle or disease-related deaths - roughly two percent of the country's total population, and nearly more deaths than all other American wars combined.

PS: The same bite referred to in my last message is also the main cause why Confederate rebels lost their fight by Civil War before it ever began for all practical intents or purposes. Why else does everyone else who's alive and rational today openly say with no shame whatsoever that Black Dispatches were THE single most valuable source of Union intelligence during the war.
I want to create a forum. how do I do that? If anyone can help, Thanks!!
