My grandson is studying the Civil War in his new school up north in “Yankee Country” where the slant on that war is definitely different than what is taught here in the South. Fortunately, there he will get a truer picture of the causes of the conflict. Rather outrageous that our academic history books vary from region to region in the United States, don’t you think? We can’t even agree on historical facts!
