Quote for this sesquicentennial of the War of the Rebellion

Future years will never know the seething hell, the black infernal background of the countless minor scenes and interiors … of the Secession War, and it is best they should not. The real war will never get in the books.

-- Walt Whitman on the Civil War, which began 150 years ago today
