Abstract:
With the 150th anniversary of the Civil War arriving soon, the effects of the war are still felt in several ways. The way the event is being celebrated angers some, but has changed to include diverse views and be more inclusive than celebrations in the past. However, some groups still celebrate the South as they believe it was and should be through hate groups. Modern connections are also drawn between the exploitation of people and the modern exploitation of the environment. Historians and archivists share their opinions on the effects of the war, what has changed, and what hasn’t.
