Since the victors of warfare write the histories, one must look long and hard to find recognition of the radical critics of any given war. No matter how substantial or respectable anti-war sentiment may be as a conflict approaches, once the pro-war spirit gets rolling, like a snowball down a mountain, it sweeps aside everything in its path. The War between the States is no exception.
