“I was just going to not post but I did want to reply. Yes we lost but at the end there were twice as many dead Yankees as Rebels”.

The South didn’t lose the war, they just ran out of men to fight it.
They lost the war, in part because of 40 regiments of southern men who fought for the US government against the insurrection.
