The American Civil War. Does anyone really win a civil war?
See my infographic a few days ago. Sobering and sad.
More lives lost than any other American war, including WWII, the Vietnam war, the Korean War, Iraq/Afghanistan, and of course, 1812, when the British set fire to the White House! The latter isn't even mentioned in most histories, at least not accurately.

Very smart and risky, winner takes all. It's said the brutal Russian winter defeated Napoleon.
