"Two percent of the population—more than 620,000—died in it.
• In two days at Shiloh on the banks of the Tennessee River, more Americans fell than in all previous American wars combined.
• During the Battle of Antietam, 12,401 Union men were killed, missing or wounded; double the casualties of D-Day, 82 years later. With a total of 23,000 casualties on both sides, it was the bloodiest single day of the Civil War. (Historians believe that if McClellan had advanced on Lee one day sooner the war would have been over.)
• At Cold Harbor, Va., 7,000 Americans fell in 20 minutes."

War is a great way to experience separation. What it means and how it feels to be separate. Losing someone you love is the most emotional thing we have to experience. Nothing else comes close and since there is a connection between emotion and memory the more emotional the experience the more powerful and long lasting the memory it creates.

Another words it happens on purpose. There are no coincidences and everything happens for a reason.
