Ace shows how it's done.

I've got a longer piece I want to do, but it will have to wait. In class today, we were doing Reconstruction, and I put the question to the class what was the argument for voting McClellan in 1864. Lincoln had no plan for Reconstruction, the war was horribly mismanaged, McClellan was a decorated veteran and Lincoln had no real military experience, McClellan was polished and erudite, Lincoln rough and a rube. It produced an interesting discussion, to say the least....

Speaking of Reconstruction, if the founding fathers had been alive during the Civil War, which side would they have been on? Since many had slaves, would they go with the Confederacy, or stick with the Union they had just founded? I've been thinking about this for a few days and I can't decide.
