This was vicissitude on the Confederacy, and it made them realize they had little prospect for the rest of the war. This pessimistic mindset added to the significance of this Civil War turning point. Another reason the Battle of Gettysburg was a turning point of the Civil War was how much hardship set in. According to Document C, many generals were killed. In the letters between Robert E. Lee and Jefferson Davis, it was mentioned that General Barksdale was killed, some generals were missing, and others were severely wounded.
The American Civil War was one of the most violent times in American history. Americans were fighting against each other, the North against the South. Many people disagree about what transpired on April 12, 1864 at Fort Pillow. According to Wyeth, General Nathan Bedford Forrest captured Fort Pillow with approximately 1500 men and claimed numerous lives of Union soldiers (250). This became a huge issue of propaganda for the Union.
The aftermath of the war was a complete an utter devastation when it came to casualties. The Civil War was documented as the deadliest in American History it caused about 620,000 soldiers death and an undetermined amount of civilian causalities; it ended slavery, restored the Union, and strengthened the role of the federal government. General Grant and General Lee were both graduates of West Point. General Lee graduated from West Point in 1829 second in his class and General Grant graduated in 1843 twenty-first in his class. While both great generals started, their military careers the same way the rest of their careers were very different.
Northern will held throughout the long bloody war. The fall of the Confederacy was well described by Alan Farmer when he said “A people whose armies are beaten, railways wrecked, cities burned, countryside occupies, and crops laid waste, lose their will-and ability-to continue fighting (2005, para. 26).

There is nothing good about war, especially for soldiers, civilians and families. People feel the effects long after the war is over, because of the traumatic experiences. The worst acts of dehumanization during wars are the ill-treatment of the soldiers in World War One, the Holocaust in World War Two and the child soldiers of today. World War One was the deadliest conflict in human history with over 35 million military and civilian casualties. The soldiers bared the worst suffering through their experiences living in the trenches.
The three things that affected North Vietnamese, hating Americans, living in harsh conditions and receiving severe injuries were all things they had to deal with during and after the war. They hated the Americans for causing deaths and poisoning land that will now cause problems for North Vietnamese today. The harsh conditions led to injuries which also made them hate Americans. As much as they hated them at that time, they now forgive and try to move forward from what happened. The Vietnam War definitely affected them in a bad way but at least they look into the future and not think of the past.

The loss reflected through the American nation, thus a "republic of suffering" according to Frederick Law Olmsted. The numbers of fatalities accumulated with the arrival of Union hospital ships. The government developed national cemeteries and the Civil

More than 300,000 American troops had been killed or wounded in the overseas battle ("the claim"). The country had plummeted into debt to cover its own military costs and then, post-war, was forced to forgive other countries their debts to the United States. This unloaded a tremendous burden of debt onto America and thus sent the country into the Great
