The War of Northern Aggression

The Civil War is in the news today, of course, thanks to it being the 150th anniversary since shots were fired at Fort Sumter. 

Is the War of Northern Aggression (as we in the South sometimes call it) still relevant today?  According to a new Pew Research Center poll, yes it is, or at least it's seen as relevant to 56 percent of Americans.  The report does a pretty good job of breaking the findings down by southern versus non-southern attitudes not only about the war but also about the Confederate flag (to the right), the cause of the war (slavery versus states rights) and all the rest.
