The Lingering War 

Want to end the Civil War?

Want to end the Civil War? Write a headline, “North Capitulates, South Wins War.”

Union Gen. Ulysses S. Grant said: “No more. We have lost too many men to Southern sharpshooters.”

The South creates a 12th-century medieval society that only South Carolina, Georgia, Mississippi, Alabama and Louisiana enjoy. Years later, the rest of the states want back in.

They are refused.

Anyway, history is changed. We lose the Indian Wars, Spanish-American War and World War I and World War II. We now all speak German, Japanese and Spanish.
