Civil War in Four Minutes

Posted by Warren Peterson on March 28, 2010

Thanks to George S. For sending the You Tube link called “The US Civil War in 4 Minutes”. In four minutes one sees a war costing over 900,000 dead and wounded in a nation (North and South) of only 34,000,000 people. In the age of high tech warfare, a casualty rate of 2.6% of the population, double if one considers only the male population, seems inconceivable. This is truly a nation purchased with blood.
