|It has been said that if you don't want to start an argument, don't bring up religion or politics. I think that if you don't want to start an argument concerning the Civil War, it is not a good idea to bring up whether you like or dislike certain personalities.
With a Mount Rushmore type theme, I think the four most polarizing characters of the Civil War era would be John Brown, Nathan Bedford Forrest, William T. Sherman, and probably Abraham Lincoln. These people are either loved or loathed. Are there other people that you would replace any of these people with - or maybe just like to add to the list?
