by the title im referring to the american civil war, from what i understand seems to be one of the most memorab;e wars in american history.
but reading a historical novel from the side of the confederates, ive begun to realise that the events leading to the civil war bear a striking resemblence to some in todays political climate, and that the issue of slavery being merely a tiny wedge in what were already splitting relations beween the north and the south, areas of the latter seem coincidently to match the areas of what people now call the bible belt. food for thought in my opinion.
And now today we have another boiling pot of an issue this time, the unofficial emergence of 'jesusland' with the threat of biblical creationists trying to break down the seperation between church and state
so? if things exploded, what would you be, a billy yank? or johnny reb?
