If you read it and thought it was a Civil War thread, you missed the whole point of the article. The point of history is to study it and apply it to those of us living today. That’s exactly what this article does.
This isn’t the first time that our country was so divided, in fact it was far more divided during the Civil War which should seem obvious. Yet we came back together again and this article tries to examine that. We could apply those lessons today.
