Are We Still Yammering About Whether the Civil War Was About Slavery? Really?


Are we still arguing about whether the Civil War was really fought over slavery? Seriously? What’s next? The Holocaust was really about Jews overstaying their tourist visas? The Inquisition was a scientific exploration of the limits of the human body? The Romans were genuinely curious about whether a man could kill a hungry lion? The Bataan death march was a controlled trial of different brands of army boots?

WTF?
