  •  Our Country was bloodied like the brave French.... (0+ / 0-)

    ....in the American Civil War.  Fought between Americans (north and south) on our own soil.  Sadly, trench warfare, machine guns, heavy mortars, repeating rifles, and many tactics from the American Civil War found their way into World War I.

    Fortunately, America didn't have another war 20 years later on her own soil like France.

    The first episode of the Award Winning "World At War" series produced in conjunction with the Imperial War Museum in Britan gives a chilling account of a town in France left in ruins, and not rebuilt, intentionally so that the unbelievable brutality the French suffered would be remembered.  This was for World War II, but the idea is the same.
