This is the lovely Ohio Historical Society. It was here that I experienced the Civil War from the Union perspective. It wasn’t very interesting. It wasn’t very dramatic. No one reenacted the battle. The North still won. I didn’t recognize any of the generals’ names. There was definitely no mention of Robert E. Lee. The uniforms on display were blue. Someone asked me if we Southerners still referred to “The War” as “The War of Northern Aggression.”

At least I made a friend while I was there!
