Historians and authors discuss ongoing legacies of the U.S. Civil War for today. I find it fascinating that in part the political divide between Democrats and Republicans is similar geographically to the division of the Union and the Confederacy. Of course a reckoning America today would be incomplete without acknowledging the last 400 years of American slavery and racism.
