Those lost supplies created a lot of job and economic prosperity for quite a bit.
There were lots of good jobs then if you were exempt from service.

The 58,000 dead were not such a positive aspect.
Niether were the additional hundreds of thousand wounded.

The social turmoil gave us reason to take a harder look at government in general.

We are still working on that one.
