What an overblown uber-opinionated hateful piece of dung this article is. To think that farm boys from Wisconsin clamored to the cities in droves to go fight Johhny Reb because some wealthy landowners in the South wanted to own some slaves is absolute liberal revisionist hogwash! Similarly, to think that farm boys from Louisiana clamored to the cities in droves to go fight Billy Yank because some wild-eyed abolitionists in the North wanted to set the slaves free is complete and utter revisionist horse-puckey! My ancestors certainly didn't fight to keep slaves, they didn't own any. They cared not that others owned them, nor did they care to set them free. It simply was NOT the issue, or an issue at all to them. Period. Tom Danehy suffers from a severe case of "presentism" combined with a mighty good touch of liberalism... The prognosis isn't good!
