So I don't see how a war-gaming site would help you understand what most of us frankly don't give a shit about.

That made me Lol.

But, to be fair, it is a widely held belief here, most of the people in my Government class had no idea that the war wasn't about slavery, despite the fact that they had all gone through the same US History class with a teacher who explained it to them over the course of a month.

I personally have no problem with it unless they fly it as a "take that" to blacks out of the mistaken belief that that is what the Confederacy, and the American Civil War, was about.
