15. Of Rape? Of being burned alive? Lynching? Starvation?

 

These military statistics, however, tell only a part of the story. The war also killed a significant number of civilians; battles raged across farm and field, encampments of troops spread epidemic disease, guerrillas ensnared women and children in violence and reprisals, draft rioters targeted innocent citizens, and shortages of food in parts of the South brought starvation.
.......................................................

The distinguished Civil War historian James McPherson has estimated that there were 50,000 civilian deaths during the war, and has concluded that the overall mortality rate for the South exceeded that of any country in World War I and all but the region between the Rhine and the Volga in World War II.

White men were making all the decisions about who would live, who would die, and to whom would go the spoils. They were the ones in power, and it was started on behalf of preserving White Supremacy.

You really think that White Men won't be calling the shots in any similar "revolution" here in the US?
If I were to vote in a presidential
primary today, I would vote for:
Joe Biden
