Lead:  One hundred and fifty years ago the Republic was facing its greatest crisis. This continuing series examines the American Civil War. It is A House Divided.

Intro.: A Moment in Time with Dan Roberts.

Content: It is hard to believe but even as late as the beginning of 1862, Union and Confederate leaders were anticipating that the war was going to be short-lived. We look back and see the terrible multi-year struggle and with the benefit of hindsight find it difficult to understand the absence of strategy and planning. Yet, this kind of war, with enormous resources and entire populations marshaled in the pursuit of absolute victory, was unknown on this continent.
