For northern blacks were exposed to the formal segregation of the south when training in rural military camps. All the more when they found that the Army itself was segregated, where they were revoked of the right to fight, often given medial positions as cooks and cleaners. Black soldiers who were allowed to fight were given less training and worse equipment. The treatment of black soldiers lay in the striking contradiction of the freedoms which they were fighting for abroad, yet were unable to enjoy themselves. This continued segregation throughout the war served only to transform black soldier’s attitudes; they would use the ‘Double V’ sign to show they were fighting for two victories: victory overseas and victory over racism at home.
Napoleon was successful for a variety of reasons until 1806. Motivation, Toulon, tactics, subordinates, ambition, meritocracy, Code Napoleon, Austerlitz and the enemy making mistakes were all very influential in his success. Motivation was a significant reason for Napoleon’s success as having a motivated army that fought hard for their leader was very useful in battle. He took time to speak to his soldiers asking them how their families were, he gave them medals if they deserved it, by doing this he gave them motivation and it also meant that others around them wanted to do better to receive praise themselves from Napoleon. He also gave speeches to the army to motivate them, which also developed the feeling of comradery within the ranks.
The Reds Won the Civil War Because They Were More Disciplined Than the Whites. Throughout the War, the contrast in discipline of the two sides stood out, and certainly helped the Reds to win the war; however, there were many other factors that also contributed to the success. The leadership of the Red Army and Government was where the discipline stemmed from, particularly from Vladimir Lenin and Leon Trotsky. In the Army, Trotsky had a strict policy on shooting deserters. Source B supports this, saying that if any unit ‘retreats without orders’ they would be shot’.
"Gettysburg The Movie" History Vs. Facts The epic American Civil War film "Gettysburg" released in 1993 was based upon the book written by author Michael Sharra "The Killer Angels" 1975. The story is told through a few of the major players in the battle, mostly general's Confederate commanding General Robert E. Lee, Con. General James Longstreet and Union Col.

Men and women saw the heroic feats of black soldiers in the war, and noticed that they had the same patriotism and dedication as the white soldiers. In turn, this caused people to become more open to the idea that black people were not subhuman, but equal citizens fighting for their liberty. If a white man was on the pavement and there was only room for one, the black man had to move off the pavement and allow the white pass with ease. Authorities in the south also tended to spend more money on the white Also, 40% of black housing in Washington DC was substandard, whereas only 12% of white housing fell into this category. This indicates the great difference in the wealth of each race, and that African Americans may have been segregated into one area of a city where housing was of lower quality than other areas.
Their regiments should be all Black and they must be commanded by both White and black officers. They were sometimes suffered from the racial behavior of both the members of the U.S army and civilians. But besides all of their problems, they always tried to do their best which caused them participateing not only in Indian Wars but also in a lot of other wars such as Spanish-American War, Philippine-American War and etc. Based on my experience, “Buffalo National Soldiers museum” is one of the best places to be familiar with the history of the African-American. It helps people to know the great roles of the African American soldiers who played huge part in fighting for
The fact that there were enough white men to arrange a northern army without any black people can be irritating but don’t forget that a huge anti-slavery movement already existed. So it’s possible to say that this decision was more a political considerateness than credo. During the war this general opinion changed a lot. Many black soldiers showed what they’re able to do. Supervisor of coloured regiments started to respect the black people.
In The text ‘Remember the titans’ directed by Boas Yakin an important character was Julies. Julies was important in this text because he was the captain of the black football team, he represents the idea that people can change and represents the idea of courage. Julies was a very important character in ‘Remember the titans’, Julies was important because he was the captain of the black football team before they integrated with the white team. When the black and white football team first mixed Julies along with most others had trouble integrating and getting over their racial issues with each other, before they sorted things out they were not working well they were not blocking each other and weren’t working well as a team for example Ray was not blocking Rev so what happened was that Rev broke his wrist and could not play, Because of this at the start Julies told Gerry that he would only look out for himself because the whites would not block for the blacks and the blacks would not block for the whites. This shows that Julies would not put up with Gerry’s players not blocking his players so he did something about it, this also means that Julies is not afraid of conflict and will stand up for what is right.
In Gibson’s book, “Warrior Dreams,” he describes the aftermath of America after the Vietnam War and finds out those American males have been living a war amongst themselves within their own male identity. As Gibson puts it, he “began to dream, to fantasize about powers and features of another kind of man who could retake and reorder the world” (Gibson 504). For instance, there have been a rise of action movies that involve violence and guns as being the answer to solving problems. Many American men are buying guns because they feel that they need to protect their families with it, only thinking that it makes a bigger man out of themselves, like Albright in Devil in a Blue Dress. Also, games like paintball have been created to simulate battles and wars, and to make the average American male as if he can still feel dominate.
African Americans wanted their voting rights, desegregation of schools and employment, and adequate housing. In the beginning, the movement was well organized as most African Americans rallied together in their struggle for those rights that were denied to them simply because of the color of their skin. Consequently, the movement began to falter due to differences of opinions and styles on how to best obtain those rights. In the late 1950’s and early1960’s racial tensions where at an all-time high. African American men were fighting in Vietnam alongside of white Americans, yet returning to a nation that was still treating them as second class citizens.
