|I have a suspicion that rather than spending a lot of time recognizing the 150th anniversary of the CW, most agencies will do little. In an effort to be politically correct, I'm not sure if the bigwigs at the NPS, among others, will want to pick at the countries scabs. I'm sure it makes sense to error on the side of caution and not offend anybody than recognize the incredible heroics, both north and south. They may prefer to gloss over it and hope everybody would rather celebrate waterfalls and such with an anniversary of the NPS coming up.
Much like the 200th anniversary of Lewis and Clark came and went with no fanfare, I'm thinking that most people prefer not to think about history. Probably too much thinking involved and not enough instant gratification that so many are used to these days.
