I think he was trying to make the point, that the North wasn't fighting for a cause anymore than the South.
It was aimless slaughter.
Northerners didn't treat blacks much better than Southerners.

It was about money, essentially. Winners always rewrite History so they look like the good guys.

 :-[Well, the North were the " good guys" compared to the Confederacy who seceded to preserve and expand slavery.

Check out LINCOLN.

He had complete sympathy with the confederate cause.

Lots of romantic shots of the saltire in the background.


If those quotes are accurate, Leone was not well versed in the issues surrounding the Civil War.
I believe he wanted to make an anti- war statement and picks and chooses from various historical events- including WWI and WWII
