    Approx. 20K combatants from both sides together with their horses, killed in a single day's fighting. The Southern reporters said the South won and, of course, those reporters from the North said the opposite.

    One way or another, the numerous citizens gathered on a nearby hillside to observe the battle witnessed a scene they didn't expect. It was an appalling sight even for the war-hardened generals whose job it was to create the war they lead.  

    Many men in my family fought and died in that war. Their widows,orphans and modern day descendants stayed miserably poor well into the 20th century. Anyone who advocates secession is a damn fool. Whaddaya
