I wonder how the first American Civil War would be perceived in the ASU's pop culture. On the one hand I could see it as being seen as a proto-revolution or an incomplete revolution with the anti-racist nature of the ASU propping it up as the first fight against the forces of reactionary racism. On the other hand, it could also be seen as the rich fat cats sending poor workers to die fighting a war against what should've been ended after the US gained independence. I could also see figures like Newton knight becoming just as prominent as people like Grant and Sherman. One thing's for sure, the Lost Cause probably won't factor into these movies about the first civil war given its association with Woodrow Wilson and the KKK.
