After the Civil War ended and the Union claimed its victory, life was different in the South. The best way to describe it in one word would be ¨angry¨. All the South wanted to do was create a nation of their own, but it ended in disaster. Houses and barns were burned, farm animals were nowhere in sight, and no people to be seen in the city. But ultimately, everybody knew that in order for the country to be whole again and on good terms, there needed to be a reconstruction. A reconstruction was necessary not only to repair a broken country, but to create jobs for the 4 million freed slaves who now had no jobs.
Both felt the impact of these losses and were unable to attack in the next few weeks to come. One Union soldier said, “My opinion is that this war will be closed in less than six months from this time.” Then after the battle, the same soldier said, “If my life is spared I will continue in my country’s service until this rebellion is put down should it be ten years” (Dillahunty, pg.1). This particular battle made the North realize the war wasn’t going to be an easy fight, while the Confederates now realized they couldn’t boast about their men’s fighting abilities after such a hard loss. Both sides had many volunteer troops during the battle, which showed how much motivation many of these young men had.
I would hate the South forever.” This quote shows the bondage between a character and there brother. The historical book tells us about what happened, but does not necessary talk about a person’s feelings out that event. Although, both books do talk about the Civil War, and what
Katniss, remember I —’ he says, and they [Peacekeepers] yank us apart and slam the door and I’ll never know what it was he wanted me to remember (Collins 41).” He was just about to say I love you in case she didn’t survive, but he didn’t get the chance. Gale also snaps at Katniss when she says she doesn’t want to have kids and when she doesn’t want to run away with him. “ ‘We could do it, you know,’ Gale says quietly.
a fool’s question. He continues on to explain how he cried too, relating to Joby. The General understands that not everyone is going to make it and war will not be easy. He is hoping that the other side will give up, so they can go home in a few weeks. The General tells Joby the time is going to be crazy with the amount of men on each side of the war.
Whenever war takes place, people are likely to migrate to another place. As a result, the so called “home” no longer exists because of the idea of moving to another place for survival. Notice the way he uses the language of the two lines. While “strolling” has a connotation of being mobile, “boarded-up” is fixed in a place. In other words, while one childhood is unsettling because of war, the other
The primary objective of the Reconstruction was to reunite the North and the South; however the South gave backlash to the integration of African Americans into their society. They viewed it as a compromise of their ideology. The reconstruction failed to reunite the nation because of the nation’s differences in opinion towards integration. This proved to be a large enough obstacle for the Reconstruction to not achieve its goals and be deemed ineffective.

Another principle that went along with this, was the long held belief that black slaves were inherently inferior to whites. Slaves had to be dehumanized for the slaveowners to rationalize what they were doing, and therefore, as is commonly known, slave brutality was severe. The thought of emancipation, that slaves would no longer be suppressed in the South lead to fear for uprising, vengeance, etc. on the then former slave owners. These uprisings had happened before and the southern slave owners were terrified of what would happen if they weren't being suppressed.
In the nineteen-forties there was a terrible war raging on, with many dead, and others wounded. Little did America know, there was another war, a silent war, a war of opportunities and understanding. During the war years, morale was low and Americans were afraid to go to war, however; the Double V campaign encouraged Americans to fight for democracy and victory abroad and at home. Unfortunately, it didn 't include all Americans. African-Americans had been fighting for their own freedom for many years, but now, they wanted to fight for their country and were denied,“For surely those who perpetrate these ugly prejudices here are seeking to destroy our democratic form of government just as surely as the Axis forces.”
Slavery was one of the main factors as to why the states started to secede from the union. As the states started to secede, the complications of the union started. Burn used the context of the cause of the Civil War well. There are many events that led up to the war, Burn
Many things led to the Civil War. Around the mid 1800s there was a conflict between proslavery and antislavery. Southern and Nothern both had their own view on slavery, and their separate views caused contentions between the two. (Thesis) The most significant cause of the Civil War was slavery because Northern states were against slavery and Southern states needed the slaves to do the labor and preserve their way of life.
The south being the main reason why reconstruction was a failure with acts like the KKK, Black Codes, and the thought that blacks couldn’t be elected officials were the main reasons why reconstruction failed the way that it did. The KKK commonly known as the Ku Klux Klan was one of the biggest reasons for the failure of reconstruction. Acts like the killing of “John Stephens, State Senator from Caswell”(Document A) The KKK created lots of violent terrorist like
