Civil War Weapons With Dick Stilling-- Part 2: Junk in a Trunk

According to Mr. Stilling, there were between 620,000-630,000 battlefield deaths and many more horrific wounds.  The state of Alabama spent its entire state budget for prostheses in 1866, that many limbs had been lost in the war.

Then, there was something called the Posse Comitas Act which says the president can't use federal troops to put down an uprising.

Then, Winston Churchill said, "Those that fail to learn from history are doomed to repeat it.

He had a large collection of weapons from the Gettysburg battlefield.
