Prologue

This song is by The Charlie Daniels Band.

On the twelfth of April, 1861, Confederate guns opened fire on Fort Sumter in Charleston Harbor, thus beginning the bloodiest conflict in American History--620,000 dead---more than all other American wars combined.
The Civil War remains this nation's single most defining experience, ultimately giving new meaning to the word Freedom.
Walt Whitman, a young newspaperman destined to become America's greatest poet wrote : "Future years will never know the seething hell and the black infernal background of this war -- and it is best they should not -- the real war will never get in the books."
