With the incredible destructive force that war, ESPECIALLY civil war, brings to bear even in a short period, it often overshadows long periods of peace in the history books.

Look at U.S. history books. How much ink is given to the Civil War (four years), compared to the rest of that century? How about the history from Columbus to the run-up to the Revolution, versus the Revolution itself?
