Sixty thousand loyalists became refugees. “The dislocated proportion of the American population exceeded that of the French in their revolution,” Alan Taylor tells us in “American Revolutions: A Continental History.” The economic decline “lasted for 15 years in a crisis unmatched until the Great Depression.”

More complicated question. Let me just say that I have a lot of sympathy for Robert Lee's dilemma.

So did Lincoln and the bulk of the Union government, which is why Lee wasn't tried for anything substantial, why Grant let him walk away from Appomattox with his personal arms, etc.
