It really says something that the two most traumatic events in US history are Pearl Harbor and 9/11- both events had less than 10,000 casualties; Churchill's line about more British civilians being killed by the Germans every day than American civilians died in Pearl Harbor comes to mind. Washington blows Pearl and 9/11 put together out of the water. I might be optimistic here, but I think that the mutual rage white and black Americans feel towards the CSA ttl might genuinely be a huge help for race relations. Consider the impact that war against the racism of the Third Reich had on US race relations, and that was without the Wehrmacht committing atrocities against White American civilians.In terms of bloodlust, the Sack of Washington probably turns it up to 11. I'm not honestly sure iOTL what the single military event in the history of the US that led to the most American women being raped. My *guesses* are either the Fall of the Philippines *or* some battle with Native Americans (and no, I don't know if that would be by US Army soldiers on Native American Women or by a group of Native American men on White women, my guess is the first). I'm not sure any of these are anywhere near the Sack of Washington.
