For the South there were many jobs like carpenters, mechanics, and blacksmiths. These jobs only applied if you weren’t a famer or plantation owner. There were many background jobs of soldiers before the war. There were many soldier casualties in the war on both sides. The casualties mainly are from disease/ infection and battle wounds.
Many woundings would just lead to amputations. Many lives were lost in the Civil war but not many of those lives were lost on the battlefield. The following are examples of the kind of injuries that occurred in this war. Young can pretty much say that the Civil war was a time tragedy. Due to the high amounts of lives lost.
Reading Seymour Hersh 's article, there is a ditch in the village of My Lai. Crowded with dead bodies, dozens of women, old people and children by the American soldiers. Those people fighting in armed conflict. I feel like every war in the past and every war in the future is all the same, but if war resulted in peace now it would be better after hundreds years of death and wars. The crazy part of the war is that people went and made the same mistake over and over again.
Slavery in The Civil War The American civil war from 1861 to 1865 divided many people in the United States, even turning brother against brother. There were also great amounts of bloodshed and was one of the bloodiest wars in the US and left a heritage of brief and bitterness. And the basis of this war, slavery, slavery is usually very cruel and has been around since early man. Their were two sides to this war, the North and the south. The North consisted of 19 free states in which slavery was prohibited and in the South 15 slave states which could own slaves.
I also mentioned that one of the different jobs you can take as a civil war soldier, was what was known as “Guard Duty”. This can be compared to a security guard or police officer. The point of the Guard was to look out for anyone on the opposite side who may attempt to sabotage, or kill any members of the Union Army. In the beginning, before the Union invaded the south, hardly any prisoners were found, but as they grew closer, more and more prisoners were found and caught. The Union didn’t have a very secure way of keeping these prisoners, so inevitably, the prisoners
More people died of flu than war injuries. Caught in a war that was waged primarily in trenches (big ditches that filled with mud, rats, and rainwater), Owen began to find it hard to justify all the suffering and death he witnessed. He was perfectly willing to sacrifice his life for king and country, but, like many other people, he 'd like to make sure that his sacrifice was actually needed.
At the beginning of the war he lost his mom and his sisters. But because his dad stayed by his side almost the whole time Elie stayed strong and lived to tell the tale. In a dystopian society, there are a lot of evil, bad people. Whether it is the people who actually started the dystopian society or like in the book Night, the people who stood by and watched what happened happen. In his dystopian society, everything that happened there became the “norm.” Killing?
Vietnam War was one of the longest war in American history. Many people were fighting in this war and eventually the Americans had to come in and also fight. Many lives were affected either economically and/or physically before and after the war. Like my grandma, Nga Nguyen, her life was affected economically after the war and others were also like her. My grandma and her family lived through the war and had to move eventually and lost many things they owned.
Although Crane and Komunyakaa are both poets, they have their differences. Crane is writing about the civil war while Komunyakaa wrote about his experience of the Vietnam war. Crane’s historical background is inspired by reading about soldiers and their experience first handedly. “The Red Badge of Courage” is more of a psychological portrait of the main character’s perception in a time of war relating to Henry Fleming's experience in combat. Komunyakaa wrote his poem based on his personal experience of actually being there in the vietnam war serving as an information specialist.
