Banshee Coulter: Most U.S. Military Bases Named after 'Confederate' Officers, Like 'Eisenhower, Nimitz'

Conservative pundit and banshee Ann Coulter claims in this "debate" broadcast on Fox News' Hannity & Colmes that most U.S. military bases are named after "Confederate officers." She uses two examples, President/General Dwight D. Eisenhower and Admiral Chester W. Nimitz. Both were born after the end of the American Civil War and served in World War II, not the Civil War. This statement occurs around the 4:50 mark.

Around the 1:30 mark she claims that the "brilliant" thing about our Civil War was that "it ended," unlike civil wars in the Balkans and Iraq. Although sectarian tensions still exist in the Balkans, the last time I checked the wars had ended in the 1990s. As for Iraq, its civil war has been fully waged since February 2006. The American Civil War lasted from 1861-1865 and ended after the deaths of 620,000-700,000 soldiers on both sides.
