Generals and Gentlemen - The Faces of War
Ultimately it was these individuals that drove the machine of war for both sides of the conflict.
As with any war before it or since, the bloody American Civil War relied on a cast of hundreds of prominent and not-so-prominent people. While there proved the legendary names such as Lincoln, Grant and Lee, there were more persons operating in various theaters of the long-running conflict between the states. By the end, over 600,000 souls would be committed to the afterlife. Those that remained, were forced to live through the turbulent times of Reconstruction as the rebellious South was integrated back into the fold of what was - once again - the United States of America.
