Love the site. Very helpful as I am getting into reenactments. Would it be possible for you to add onto here what accessories a confederate woman may have carried with her on a daily basis? thanks!

The proper word is secession, not succession.

Your site is interesting, but there is quite a bit of misinformation on various topics. Including primary sources might be wise. Thanks for your efforts.

I read the Lincoln page. Of course the saying goes the victors write the history books, so much about the civil war and reason for succession as well as the legal implication of the civil war is never discussed. Anti-slavery was an emotional force but certainly a distortion of the reasons for the civil war. Whether states could legally succeed is a good question. I believe so but whether it was ultimately in everyones best interest is debatable. What concerns me the most is how the relationship between states and the federal government changed forever, for the worst. The problems we have today stem directly from the civil war. I am not convinced that the US can legally exist after the the south seceded, nor any of the constitutional changes enacted are legal. But of course nobody questions that.

Hi, my grandson noticed an error. Clara Barton did not die on the same day that the Titanic sank. She was deceased on 4/12/1912 and the Titanic sank on 9/15/1912. I was disappointed as I was going to use it as a Civil war Trivia question.
