WOW!!....What a question!!

From a Southern soldier stanpoint, theire homes, in their opnion, were invaded. I won't quote a source, as I feel any basic research would show this. Hence, their ferocity in defense. Although, the Wester soldiers had the opinion that the war was lost long before the Eastern soldier held that opinion (which is justified by the success/failiures of the respective armies)..Additonally, there were more per capita casualties as technolgy, strategy, etc seprated this type of warefare from that of subsequant wars......For example, we've lost more lives at Gettysburg than we have in 9 years of war in Afghanistan and Iraq......Why??.....Difference in terain, strategy, technogy, etc. The same can be said for the Civil War vs WWI, WWII, Korea, Viet Nam.......
