Chapter nine:
Because of this blog, I have spent a lot of time learning about America's Civil War. I think that, at first, the leaders of the Union Army, including President Lincoln, believed that they'd win the war pretty quickly. I mean, the North had more men, more money, more guns and more resources. I think they thought they'd just roll on down and BANG.
That didn't happen.
But not only did that not happen, they started to realize that this was going to take a really long time to hash out. Here's the truth, ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls: War is expensive, and I mean EXPENSIVE.
You ever wonder where paper money came from, at least the paper money we use in the good old U.S. of A.? The Civil War, that's where.
