      When I visit battlefields, I too am saddened by the ways that Americans used to
      regard and treat one another. Specifically, I am saddened how it was once thought
      that it was OK, or normal, or even good, that people of one race could own as
      property the people of another race. I do take some comfort in the fact that the
      mess that the Founding Fathers left was eventually repaired, and their ideals had
      a chance to be realized.

      knowledgeable about the history of the War and that I was alone in my visits.
      Like most any caring and decent person, I was also saddened by the ways that
      Americans used to regard and treat one another, but it did not go beyond the
      normal at the time.
