And it accurately describes what the war was really about. The Confederacy's fight was a noble one against overwhelming odds.... a second American revolution where southerners were fighting for their rights and freedom against an oppressive federal government. If only Gettysburg had turned out differently. Who knows... What if.... I would've proudly fought in the Army of Northern Virginia! Not all soldiers get to fight for a just cause they truly believe in.
