When we were in Atlanta a couple of weeks ago, we went to the GA historical museum and spent almost all our time in the Civil War exhibit. I'd never before seen so clearly just how passive the South was in its conduct of the war. Almost all of the South's strategy was defensive. Of course I knew that the incursion into PA at Gettysburg was the only time that the South had come into northern territory, but I'd not really realized that for the most part the South defended rather than attacked. That's why it's "the war of northern aggression," I guess--although given the secession, I don't see the aggression so much as I do the desire to keep the Union whole. Anyway, I really enjoyed the visit to the museum--and was ashamed by some of the commentary written by northerners into the guest book. Some really deep a-holes in there.
