This picture looks like it could have been taken recently. The houses don't look much different than modern houses.

No power lines. No paved streets. No cars. No cell towers. Doesn’t look modern at all.

only difference is that they are built much better back then than the crap they build today and they did things by hand back then not all of this modern tools they have today.

Wasn’t a “Civil” War, it was the “War of Northern Aggression”!

“Wasn’t a “Civil” War, it was the “War of Northern Aggression”!”

Yes..it..is. And we are just waiting for the next one. This time, the lib states will fold faster than France in 1940.

The title made me think of “The Civil War, Part 2”, as in where Obama might lead us. I hope and pray that he will step back from his overreach and avoid that catastrophe.

Great post. The next Civil War will be the Union AND Confederates fighting against the marxist evil ones.

500,000 (or so) white people died to secure freedom for black people in the United States..

AND most all those black people could care less and hated and still hate white people.. for it.. Considering most all white people could not afford to own a slave anyway.. and didn’t..

America has been pretty much brain washed about American slavery.. Few can comprehend what happened.. American democrats have re-written history.. And republicans could care less or are complicit in it.. The Confederate Army was manned mostly by people that never owned or wanted to own a slave.. they fought for States Rights.. not slavery most of them..

I had three great-grandfathers in this conflict. One fought for the South (dirt poor famer, did not own slaves), the other two for the North.

Look at the eroded masonry work on the building in the foreground. That doesn’t look so wonderful. I guess government contractors have screwed the government forever. I don’t think they had unions back then or that could explain it.

Can anyone explain this to me? If they were laying siege to Vicksburg at Johnsonville, Tenn., they had a serious logistical problem.
