6. Robert E. Lee surrendered to General Grant at the Appomattox Court House. They discussed it over some tea and cigars.
7. After Lee left, Grant got blackout drunk on bathtub whiskey. He forgot everything that occurred and tried to attack Lee the next day. After clearing up the confusion, the two hugged it out like men. Then they drank more whiskey.
8. Some people in the south refuse to believe the war is over, as they still fly the Confederate flag on a daily basis. Either that or these states are huge fans of The Dukes of Hazzard.
9. The Civil War is often considered the bloodiest war in the history of the United States. Approximately 620,000 were killed in the Civil War. That's never mentioned in Gone With the Wind.
10. The American Civil War was fought in the United States.
