I have long been bothered by the belief that anyone who maintains that the South's defeat was inevitable as long as the Union retained the will to fight is a  "Lost Causer!"

I think this is an utterly realistic assessment of the 'correlation of forces' and a great example of why the South was nuts to risk war.

What am I not getting?
26ª11'56"N   81ª48'19W"
Which is about as far south as one can get
