  back to top is one site working the issue but they are trying to be the "good cop" and use friendly persuasion to get the mining company to listen to reason.  If you want to help the "bad cop" go after the mining company, send money to the Austin Civil War Roundtable:

Indicate you want the money to go toward the efforts to stop the mining at Mansfield.


The world powers ignored the what might bes at the end of WW1 and now we have the mess in the Middle East to contend with as a result.  But if you want to talk only the what happened, Texas was spared the ravages of the war and basically jump started the southern economy via cattle and agriculture, then oil and finally high tech after the war.  The influx of people to Texas from the north and south because Texas was spared was tremendous and caused this boom.  Now for the might have been, if Banks wins at Mansfield he is pulling his own March to the Sea along with Sherman destroying east and central Texas, so it is no longer an economic Mecca after the war.  Hopefully that is not too Newt Gingrich.
