Reviewing the Civil War

I just heard breaking news that CNN is revisiting the outcome of the American Civil War. It appears that it was too close to call and the South may still have a chance.

Documents were found that support the fact that some people joined the wrong side; apparently they weren't aware that their states were part of the South and they were fighting for the North. The line between the North and South was "just too confusing" for some.

Additionally some unused Confederate uniforms were found that could have been used by soldiers otherwise not given the chance to fight.

A recount of all the battles is being simulated with new populations via computer to see who would have actually won. Right now it's just too close to call.
