Colonel Joshua Lawrence Chamberlain provoked a decision for the mutineers that they probably would never have done if they didn’t hear his speech. After Chamberlain’s powerful speech he had convinced all but 6 of 120 men to rejoin the battle and fight alongside Chamberlain himself and help out the North in their battle.

This reveals that all of the mutineers have a purpose no matter where they came from.

The Cherokees suffered illness and the death of their beloved ones, they were tired, but had to keep moving, forced by the soldiers. The act was cruel and inhumane, and the forced movement of the Cherokees was not a correct action taken at that point in history. It was unfair for the Cherokees, because the general was not willing to move. It violated the Cherokee’s rights, caused a great number of casualties, and violated the constitution.
