Welcome to The Late Unpleasantness, a genteel but dated euphemism for the American Civil War. A century and a half after the event, the war remains relevent and at times controversial. Surprisingly, there are various aspects of the war which are still little known and many controversies that remain as unresolved as they were immediately after the war.
In the following posts I shall attempt to explore lesser known aspects of the war, as well as the more famous events which we think we know all about–yet around which controversey still swirls.
So, sit back, pour a fresh cup of Java and buckle your seats. It’s going to be a bumpy ride.
