Lincoln had never given up, not without getting what he wanted done in the begginning. For a portion of the Civil War, Lincoln served as a commander in chief and chief of staff. This was because when the Civil War began, the USA was not organized. Lincoln played a huge role us strategic thinking for the nations army, despite his lack of knowledge on most things in the military field. Most people underestimated Lincoln since he had such a kind heart.
Although the civil war was not won that day, it was one of the deciding factors that eventually lead to the union victory and the freeing of the slaves, which would have most likely not have been accomplished if not for the men on that battlefield. The killer angels was an intense and detailed novel about the history of the battle at Gettysburg however, I think that this novel is now a peace of great history
All of his evidence really points to the Indians being good warriors but not getting the appreciation they deserve after the war is over. He does not give much evidence that is against his thesis, everything seems to point back to his thesis. He is very opinionated with the support that he gives for his thesis. Robert S. Allen really uses his evidence very well to support his thesis. He is always giving more evidence stating that the Indians were not being taken care of unless the British needed them for war.
7. The effect of the collapsing time in the final paragraph is that it had really emphasized his terror of remembering the war because even though the war was a huge impact part of his life O’Brien fears the memories of it. The rhetorical effect of this irony is that he spent so much thought over going or not going to war that the memories of the war was given no details whatsoever. It was almost not considered as important as the decision. 8.
We couldn’t help other soldiers who were sick nor give a proper funeral to other soldiers died because of diseases. We count ourselves as lucky to survive in that harsh condition. Even though Washington was a quick tempered man, we (the soldiers) liked him and his ability to hold together the army. He always cared about the soldiers first and asked support from congress even though it was tough because there were threats to his leadership. He also recruit Native Americans to fight against British.
Sadly in the end, he died right beside half of his Regiment, but I’m sure that he also died with pride and dignity. The movie “Glory” taught me that to be a leader, you will have to endure some struggles and make sacrifices; it’s not about you, it’s about your followers and putting them ahead of you. Sometimes this may also involve risks and you may also have to do things that are out of your character. Colonel Shaw had to fight to take care of his Regiment, but he didn’t give up; he stood strong. It was nice to see that with honestly comes respect and with respect comes loyalty.
I felt a bit better when the general Robert Shaw said that if you receive less pay than all of us wont get any money. This made me feel better because even the generals were on the colored peoples side. I can relate the battle with any other battle that happened because all the troops men worked together and showed everyone that they could fight. I felt sad when the other Union generals army marched from war and made fun of the colored men. I felt this way because both the generals’ men were fighting against the Confederates so they should work together.
Andrew J. Hamilton Mrs. Hale AP English 11 24 January 2014 A Great Man during Hard Times A common misconception is that all southerners before and during the civil war were believers of slavery, however Confederate General Robert E. Lee didn’t believe in slavery (Connelly 176). Robert E. Lee lived during one of the roughest times in American history. The Civil War not only pitted brother against brother, but it also forced Robert E. Lee to fight against his former classmates and acquaintances. Robert E. Lee could have been the commanding general of either army but he chose the Confederacy due to his roots in Virginia (Connelly 178). Along with being a brilliant military commander, Lee also wrote a few pieces of literature, which
In this article by Mrs. Deluca she mentioned that combat soldiers are trained to “toughing it out”, whatever the problem is. They are trained not to show any signs of “weakness” because in some cases it is frowned upon. Combat war veterans at times will tend to judge themselves as being weak because the condition makes them feel weak. Mrs. Deluca also explains that to tough it out is a skill that is necessary when it comes to a combat situation. The reason is because soldiers see it as skills that work and that have made it possible for them to come home alive from war.
By defeating the northern army on their own grounds, he hoped to bring the population of the north into a panic and settle for peace. He hoped this would convince them to allow the south their own country. General James Longstreet was General Lees second in command of the Northern Virginian Army. Historian Jeffery Welt wrote that General Longstreet was the finest corp commander in the army of Virginia. He also stated that Longstreet was the best corp commander in the civil war conflict on either
