But the mass murder of civilians was never American policy in Vietnam.
War crimes were the exception, not the rule. And the Winter Soldier tribunal itself — which John Kerry had helped moderate — turned out to be “packed with pretenders and liars. Mostly stonewalling, backtracking, and statements that failed to support the VVAW’s claims Jerome Corsi and Scott Swett.

Between the years and , the United States engaged in a civil war, one of the most significant military confrontations in the young republic’s life. The conflict dramatically altered the course of American society, eradicating the institution of slavery from the land and accelerating a number of social, economic, and political trends originating in other regions of the country.
It also made lasting cultural impressions across imaginative and material American landscapes, including the gradual growth of a complex tourist industry built upon memory, patriotism, and consumerism, and the immediate expression of a deeply rooted, though politically sensitive, religious attachment to a distinctly southern way of life. The Civil War, however, was a major turning point in American history for another reason as well: While antebellum America demonstrated marked preoccupations with the reality of death in literature, material culture, religion, diaries and letters, and early medicine, the war led to the extreme escalation of certain tendencies emerging on the social scene, as well as to the production of entirely new views on death and the dead.
The incredible numbers of young men who died during the war, the problems associated with disposal of their bodies, and the rhetorical and symbolic efforts to make sense of the lives lost had profound consequences for American sensibilities and institutional structures. The Presence of Death During the war years, death was a pervasive element of social life in both the northern and southern sections of the country.
