Imagine the complexities of the U.S. Civil War. Not simply the manpower and the production of weapons and the casualties caused by them. Imagine instead the individuals whose sacrifices were often seen as meaningless, the outcome of the war - for mosst - was not a secret. It was the conflict between Conviction; the sense of right over wrong and the emancipation of all of the American States and its collective citizens, and the Convention of what was held an almost sacred belief in the econmics of a slave-driven Southern region whose ignorance and defiance of humanity coupled with the imagination of industry led to this terrible conflict and its ultimate and ignominious ending. The end, however, is yet to be resolved as we view American politics today. The story of this book is a view of history seen through the eyes, and through the passages of hopeful and yearning letters to loved ones and, in many respects, to those whose future generations may read the conflict brought upon through ignornace, intollerance and a bitter disregard for life. Both fought in the name of God yet ignored the tenants of His sacred word: Thou Shalt Not Kill. The question no longer remains that all men are created equal - the question remains to we as a nation hold true this fact or do we refuse still to accept it wholly and without reservation? This is the essence of this work, the sacrifices and beliefs of the men and women who gave their all to stand on the correct side of history. Is this still true today?
