Marshall implicitly argues that nineteenth century Americans did not perceive the military death toll of the U.S. Civil War as a catastrophe. On what grounds does he make this assertion?

If you choose this option, provide your prompt at the top.)
Add one question about something that confused you in the readings, or one they left unanswered that you’re curious about, or one you’d like to hear others’ opinions on.
