Wonderful history in a poem. And for me, a little sad, as my great grandfather died in that battle.

|"...mattered not who was from North or South..." but for the politicians back on DC that never fired a shot or went near harm's way, but that thought that it was OK for a million men to die if it would secure their reelection. The slaves? they didn't cared.

|It was a bloody battle, at the end almost 10,000 lay dead.
Our history so very often is such a very sad song, and you tell this one extremely well, La Belle.

|Boy, what vivid images you portray in this passionate poem. Well done. My heart aches though for the loss of so many young men both north and south. The North thought they were fighting to for the slaves and the South fought to defend their rights and their life style. A humongous tragedy all 'round.|

|Bloody right. It was a bloody battle.
Like how it is in first narrative.
Time for the south to rise again. Or at least Rhett with Scarlet.
