To do this, they would need more workers to plant, harvest, and care for the plants. This led to the Southern economy depending on both the cotton and African Americans who were enslaved to farm it. On the other hand, the North did not have the geography in which farming could support the economy. Instead it had many rivers and streams. So, the Northerners depended on factories.
In the text, Bradbury states, “Forty thousand men, exhausted by nervous expectation. Unable to sleep for romantic dreams of battles un fought, lay crazily askew in their uniforms” ( Bradbury 168). This means the men were scared or had fear from the Battle of Shiloh by saying how they are unable to sleep and having dreams about the battles to come thinking if the still would live through them. The author also states, “More than 23,000 soldiers died during those two days at The Battle of Shiloh, At the time it was the bloodiest battle in American history” (Background 167). This shows the men feared the battle because they could be one more of the men adding into those 23,000 others.
However, both the North and South had the same aspirations for development in the West as new opportunities became available. As the railroad connected the two allowing for travel to large cities, giving those who lived in small towns or rural areas a desire to marvel at the innovative technologies and luxuries to purchase. The advancement of the railroad into the West brought new lands to settle for former slaves seeking to escape the racial discrimination in the South and the Mormons who faced persecution in the North. Discrimination and persecution were present in both the North and the South as the regions struggled to redefine their culture in the aftermath of the Civil
Between the Confederate Generals there was a lot of confusion, as Huger received conflicting orders, and then spent most of the day marching back and forth, while Magruder was unsure whether or not the Union army would attack. Despite the initial confusion, Magruder eventually made an attack on the Union rear guard at Savage’s Station, where McClellan had planned to locate as a base. One of the Union generals left behind another in order to retreat, even though their combined forces would have been enough to resist Magruder’s assault. The Confederates succeeded in this battle, while McClellan and his men continued their retreat to James River, followed by the Union rear
The Drummer Boy of Shiloh is a historical fiction novel.The author is the late Ray Bradbury.Ray is known as a science fiction writer and he is also known for writing mysteries,etc.The Battle of Shiloh lasted for 2 days and it was one of the bloodiest battles in American history.My thesis is that there will be another battle and there will be a drummer boy.There are uses of symbols in the novel. It includes leaves,the drum,and the peach. Ray uses the leaves to represent fire.And fire represents light and heat which symbolizes the soldiers huddling together.It says,“I see the hands stirring the leaves and opened his mouth to say something,but did not say it(Pg.170).This means they were starting up a fire and it matters that they have fire so they don’t die before the war.The boy was scared to say something because he didnt want to get caught.Now I will talk about a different symbol.
One of the most striking differences between the North and the South was the climate and geography. In the North, there were multiple rivers and streams. In “Discovering Our Past The American Journey” chapter 8, section one “Economic Growth,” it states “These provided the waterpower necessary to run the machinery in the new factories.” This was clearly a big helped since the rivers and streams were what kept the factories moving. Also, the North was filled with ports. In chapter 8, section one “Economic Growth” it states “Through these ports passed the cotton shipped from Southern states to New England factories, as well as the finished cloth produced in the North and bound for markets throughout the nation.” These
However, the North was based on manufacturing. The North would benefit indirectly from slavery because the cotton used to produce their textiles would be from the South. However, the North did not depend on slavery because they had other resources to help flourish their
The North used trains. That was kind of it. I mean they used ships, but there was barely anywhere to use them other than the ocean. This did make transportation of troops and other supplies from the North to the South during the civil war faster. The south definitely used boats.
Their resolution to the current situation was conducted on the basis of three main reasons: Japanese barbarism and resolve, ending the war in a swift manner, and making sure the Manhattan project did not go to waste. First off, it was obvious that Japan was on its way out as most of its allies had been either wiped out or conquered. Despite Japan appearing to be already beaten, Emperor Hirohito’s soldiers were too honorable for an unconditional surrender. As stated by Tom Nichols, on an article regarding the decision, “Japan was not preparing to surrender; it was preparing to fight to the death” (“No Other Choice”). This statement affirms the fact that even if the atomic bombs were not dropped, and a land invasion had taken place instead, the battle would not have been easily fought.
The U.S needed to project their fleet around the world and use their new battleships efficiently. The only way to achieve this sea power was to have bases around the world that their fleets could restock and refuel at and get back out on operations without having to travel far off course. This acquirement of sea bases came when America began to build naval bases in the pacific during the early 20th century. After concerns of a growing Japanese navy the U.S began establishing naval bases such in places such as the Philippines and Hawaii. This would allow their fleets and battleships to move and combat the potential Japanese threat without having to return home.
