The Civil War started this date (April 13), 150 years ago. If you took the 650,000 dead from that war and laid them end to end, the line would stretch from Washington, DC to Richmond, Virginia (100 miles) not once, but almost seven times. The bloodiest battle in US history, on OR off American soil, had 23,000 casualties.
