Approximately 620,000 Lives

Approximately 620,000 American servicemen lost their lives in the line of duty during the American Civil War.

They died from combat, accident, starvation, and disease. This death total is more than the combined losses of the Revolutionary Way, the War of 1812, the Mexican American War, the Spanish-American War, World War I, World War II, and the Korean War. Combined!

Dang, what a horrific price to pay to give up a vile cultural system. I hear someone saying, “The Civil War was fought because of economics, not slavery. Folks did not care about slavery enough to go to war.” Dang, what a horrific price to pay to give up a simply vile economic system.

It is just unbelievably wonderful that Caucasian Americans marched to war in order to free my people! Such love, such compassion, such sacrifice! Nobody ever thanks them for their sacrifice for democracy. I want to say thank you right now. I just screamed it, and my thank you is completely sincere.

I also sincerely apologize for those who believe that all white Americans are vile white supremacists; forgive them for they know not what they do. They are simply confused because they don’t see more white people standing up for them.
