agree there is a "feeling" ~ was talking to a yankee friend of mine who described the subtle anti-Southern culture up north as well.

but i think people have largely forgotten what that feeling is about, what the whole war was about and it's been so reduced to a footnote about abe lincoln and harriet tubman in the history books in public schools (and for many this is their only exposure to that legacy).

i am always amazed at the ignorant statements people will spout off about the war ~ and also the disinterest in it (history is boring, etc.)

so i think there are a number of factor that contribute to the glossying of the conflict and the ambiguous feelings people have about it today.
