    Lest we forget....

    Amazing to think, in retrospect, thet The South was winning The War Between the States until Gettysburg - and had thet incredibly costly battle been won by the South, the war-weary North may well have granted the South independence -and out great nation would likely be a group of independent countries, much like Europe is, today. ( It would not have remained jest the US and Confederate States - most likely more successions would have followed, and Texas would be an independent nation, as would California, etc....)

    Mind blowing to think about today. But, I understand, boring when taught in history classes in high school, LOL....
