NEW YORK, NY - APRIL 09: A statue of a soldier in the American Civil War is viewed at Green-Wood Cemetery in Brooklyn on the 149th anniversary of the ending of the Civil War on April 9, 2014 in New York City. Green-Wood Cemetery holds over 5,000 veterans of the war, including 75 Confederates and women who served as nurses. While New York was not the sight for any Civil War battles, it was home to numerous arms manufacturers, Confederate prisons, tens of thousands of volunteers and was a major center for the financing to the Union Army. The Civil War ran from 1861 to 1865. (Photo by Spencer Platt/Getty Images)
