Today is July 2, 1863. Today it is estimated that there were 20,000 casualties at the Battle of Gettysburg. Was "the cause" worth the cost?

What do you mean by "the cause"? Do you mean from the southern or the northern point of view?

I came to ask that very same question! You're too fast!
Is "the cause" is something we should or might recognize as pertaining to one side or another? -or- Is it to be assumed, "the cause" automatically pertains to the "winning" side ie the North

20,000 lost. That's in fathomable. Non of us can imagine a battle of that size. What brave souls.

Yo! UNfathomable one word. Incapable of being understood.

Yo to me! In fathomable is also correct! I've never used or heard it that way! Spell-Check, who knew? I sit corrected.
