Why the confusing double listings?

Other then that , find it well done and interesting. Although slightly biased toward the union point of view. That can be expected this day and age.

“Biased towards the Union view”? (Critique of a critique ; )

Just read another review, with above title, and what a disturbing take. Yes, their is an inherent bias towards “the Union side these days” because that was and remains the United States of America and the position of equality and freedom. Which of those 3 do you not support, “Cleve55”?

The opening

I fast forward the first 10 minutes in order to enjoy the interview.
