We, as a country, are not meant To agree. To belong in one room, repeating the same thing. We will change the words. Say them in a different order. And men will die because of those words. Those exact thought patterns. Rights and laws are perceived In different ways, As well as morality.

Railroads were destroyed, towns were raided, and Rebels were pushed east. They had lost.
