The Firing on Fort Sumter--the 150th anniversary

I wanted to post something on this anniversary, and was prompted by this segment of the Rachel Maddow show.

There remain many unhealed wounds of this war. I'm hoping that a reexamination may reopen the dialogue about them again. To that end, I'm planning on reading an interesting blog from the New York Times called Disunion, which chronicles the way it all fell apart.
