From Civil War to Culture War

Why it seems like we’re fighting the Civil War again.

The surrender of General Lee to General Grant at Appomattox Court House, Virginia, 9 April 1865. Reproduction of a painting by Thomas Nast, which was completed thirty years after the surrender.

Did the Union win the Civil War?

I’d like to think so. I mean, that’s what I learned in school. I’m pretty sure I’m a free person and not a slave. I never heard anything about the Confederacy winning at Gettysburg.
