Chris Bennett: on 'The War of Northern Aggression'
Miss Winston was right, Chris Bennett says. South did almost win.
Comment about: Michigan Marker at Tebbs Bend Cemetery
By Chris Bennett
The reason why Miss Noma Dix Winston taught her classes the South almost won, is because it did. I daresay that if it was not for the persistence of Abraham Lincoln and his promotion of U. S. Grant to Lieutenant General, the South most certainly would have won. Not because it was stronger, it was because the country was so sick of death and war. Our modern unpopular wars like Vietnam and Iraq pale in comparison to the unpopularity of the War between the states during its time.
General Grant understood how to use an army with superior numbers and equipment to destroy an army that was determined to defend its homeland. Basically Grant kept on fighting where as the other northern generals would retreat after a defeat. The real issue and why Lincoln is remembered as being so great is he kept the country from splitting into two halves, "a house divided cannot stand!" < i>- Chris Bennett
