Going with your comment about what if Lee and the ANV had lost. During one of my visits to Antietam, looking over the sunken road I thought what would have happened to the south/nation had Mcclellen attacked the next day and possbly dealt Lee and his army the defining defeat. How many potential lives would have been saved? Would the direction of the country, reconstruction be changed? What effect would Lincoln have if he had survived? One question I have for myself is why does the civil war/military history intrique me so much since I'm a pacifist at heart. Go figure. Maybe it has to do with my birthdate, December 7th.
