The Civil War is far from over. It gets re-enacted in grand style every 4 years, with a secondary re-enactment at 2 year intervals for Congressional elections.
The issues have changed somewhat, but the conflict is as nasty and unforgiving as ever.
It rages daily on Mudcat too, on such glorious threads as "bushwhacked" and "conservative cavalry".
A souse divided against himself cannot stand.
It will only end when the cones take over, I'm afraid.
