The civil war they say had as many casualties of Americans than all other wars combined. When we fought ourselves, it seemed we were heartless. With so many men gone, if coarse it left many widows and children not only without the bread winner of the family, but most Southern women had no homes. Many were burned, entire towns, farms and buildings. To say America cried would be an understatement. How could we have done that to ourselves?

This is another of my favorite paintings, unsurprisingly by the same artist as "The Accolade". I have a thing for the pre-Raphaelites in general. They like redheads.
