P.S.- It irritates me when I call it the Civil War and somebody "corrects" me to call it something else.  I have no desire to be caught up in their "game."

Well said... always remember giving a talk to a batch of school kids and a buckskinner corrected my referring to it as the Civil War.

"You mean the War of Northern Aggression!"

"No, I mean the Civil War; it's what Robert E Lee called it; if it's good enough for him it's good enough for me."
