Civil War Then and Now

At 0430 this morning, April 12, 1861 -- 145 years ago -- Confederate General Pierre Beauregard opened fire on Fort Sumter, Charleston, South Carolina, beginning the American Civil War. Just 3 days short of 4 full years -- April 9, 1865 -- Robert E. Lee surrendered at Appomattox Courthouse.

In 339 days, March 17, 2007, U.S. forces will have been in Iraq 3 days short of 4 years. Will they be caught in an Iraqi civil war?
