Because We Allowed Hotheads To Call The Tune

John E. McIntyre, writing about why the Civil War WAS IN FACT about slavery:

If we are going to celebrate our past, and we should, let’s acknowledge all of it. We sacrificed the lives of more than half a million young men, maimed tens of thousands others, and devastated an entire region because we could not resolve our political and economic differences peacefully and allowed hotheads to call the tune.
