I forgot to mention that civil wars as with any other kind have a tendency to involve millions of citizens who were, like myself, reluctant to be involved in actually killing anyone. When it stops being a continuation of diplomacy by other means it usually requires that people suddenly take sides. I'm not kidding myself into believing it couldn't result in my own involvement in killing human beings, only that my personal morals are opposed to it.
The little I've read of the framer's words did seem to show me that they also were greatly reluctant to engage in carnage, and were likewise forced into it by circumstances.
