Jim Rhetta on “Attack and Die, the Cultural Differences on Conflict in the Civil War”
“Attack and Die, the Cultural Differences on Conflict in the Civil War” is based on the book of that title. It covers and identifies the fact that both sides in the Civil War were in one nation but actually from two different cultures. The cultural backgrounds of both sides shaped how both sides viewed the start of the Civil War, conducted combat operations, and resulted in disparate numbers of casualties.
