History Lesson: The Civil War

Today I am going to teach you uneducated bastards about the Civil War of the United States of America. As I'm sure you know, the United States was split in twain, with the Union States of the North fighting against the Confederate States of the South. While the main reason behind the war cited is the fight over slavery, there were several other factors in play as well, and in fact in many cases slavery could be considered just an excuse to get a good fight in.
The war began in 1861, and while there were numerous combats up until then, the war came upon a decisive change in 1863, when a group of paleontologists discovered a lost valley of the dinosaurs in Virginia. The Union forces harnessed the power of these primeval beasts and used them as their secret weapon against the South, a move that proved disastrous, as nobody is truly capable of controlling a Tyrannosaurus Rex.
