Seuss used the war as an inspiration for his mind-altering way to bring this issue into the public eye. The book was written near the middle of the war and even though it is Yooks vs Zooks, this rendition still rings true to what happened in the war. The book starts out in the same way that the war did, each population thinking that their way was how it should be; for the Soviet Union and United States, it was Communism vs Anti Communism, but for the Yooks and Zooks, it was butter side up or butter side down. This comparison shows how Dr. Seuss thought the whole idea of the war was unwise enough to parallel it with something as absurd as whether or not to butter your bread on the top or bottom. Dr.Seuss’s use of imagery, symbolism, and allegory really ties the whole story together in a nice bow.

Robert E. Lee’s (1807-1870) contribution to the United States as a war general and commander received positive connotations for his commitment, attitude and inspiration on the battlefield. However, it is debateable about his contributions because of Robert Lee’s association in the Civil War (1861-1865) to the Confederate Army that fought for the Southern States. Robert Lee lead many successful campaigns and battles including the following; helping defeat Mexican armies that lead to U.S land gains and westward expansion, battles against a more powerful army in the Civil War.

The issue was essentially shelved through the balance of political power between the northern and southern states in the post-revolutionary United States. The only cause of the American Civil war was basically slavery.
