|I too am impressed with people that like to look at the entire picture. In my work I speak with many people that believe the ACW started on July 1, 1863 and ended on July 3. To some, nothing else matters. I also speak with people that feel if it didn't happen in Virginia, it is not American History. Whether people agree or disagree on how to categorize it, I feel it is important to keep an eye on the big picture. For every action in history, there is a reaction. That is why what-ifs don't particularly interest me.
Now I'm sorry to ramble and stray off topic. Really, I'm interested to learn the stories of atrocities perpetrated against civilians during the CW. I've googled the ones pointed out and look forward to learning more.
