Civil War 2 escalates, NYT recommends Gettyburg

Irony:

The short [tourist] film, “A New Birth of Freedom,” shown in the adjacent theaters every 15 minutes, lays out the origins of the war, the debate over slavery’s expansion to the new territories and the battle’s legacy, immortalized by Lincoln’s Gettysburg Address, as a defense of democratic ideals.

Once the party of Lincoln, now the party of southern white hate and fear.

A tour of Gettysburg was a common public school excursion when I was growing up. It was not particularly thrilling.

However, today it takes on a bit more meaning, and not in a good way, on progress and the ongoing battle plans of the New Confederacy.
