Civil War Haiku

One of the most interesting things about the H. W. Brands lecture posted below is his mention of composing American history in haiku.  So, dear readers, here’s a chance to employ your creativity.  What haiku would you compose about the American Civil War?  Remember: a haiku has three lines, with five, seven, and five syllables in order.  So, for example, “Black Confederates” is a line in and of itself; so is “Ulysses S. Grant.”

Get to work.
