History is written by the winners so it makes sense that 150 years have to pass before the losers get a voice. I had no clue Gen. Sherman was such a hateful bigot and Lincoln was aware of his atrocities. I also didn't realize gang rape was so prevalent in this war. The most insightful point I read was that slavery has been stopped in other western countries without the need of war. Could a large part of this war, the death, and destruction, been avoided?
