Ok, so I was a little bored and did some hunting online and found something I thought was too cool to pass up on posting. It's a shifting map displaying the North and the South's progress throughout the American Civil War, with each second of the video representing one week of real time. It shows the location and dates of many of the most important battles, as well as (gulp) a casualty count.I'm a history buff, so I might be alone in my interest here, but let's give it a shot:

Incredible. And a bit moving to someone like me who's been to many of those famous battlegrounds. Thanks for posting that, Fox.

That's actually really sad. It kind of hurts to watch that for me. I don't know why, but seeing all the progression of the war, and the casualties, and how the battles made the territories go back and forth...it was painful thinking of how much trouble our country was going through.

@Vendetta
Glad you enjoyed it. I've seen numerous of the sites as well, and it's always moving.

@Grenworthshero
I actually agree with you that it's a bit tragic. So many dead....
