The Battle of Gettysburg happened from July 1st to 3rd, 1863, at Gettysburg, Pennsylvania. During those days, the major defeat of the Confederates was documented by Northern reporters present at Gettysburg. The Confederates’ defeat was expressed in many articles and editorials, further disheartening the South. The Battle of Gettysburg was the major turning point of the Civil War. This decisive battle determined whether the Union or the Confederates win the Civil War.
Slave owning and slavery in general had a lasting impression on the way the South functions. The validity of the statement completely falls through; the statement makes a false argument on how slavery affected the United States. Slavery in the Antebellum South led to not only an extremely successful growth in economics, but also enhanced the social diversity and community developments between whites and blacks. The economic structure in the Antebellum South, truly improved with the influx of slavery.
James M. McPherson’s book, “Abraham Lincoln and the Second American Revolution,” is a truly informative and exciting book, which explores this simple, yet difficult question. Through his own documented lectures and published papers, the author defends the idea that the Civil War was indeed a second revolution by exploring various definitions of the word “revolution” and investigating data related to the wages of African-Americans, employment, property ownership, education, etc., in antebellum and postwar America. McPherson describes how the Civil War changed over time, and how Abraham Lincoln changed with the war. He also suggested that Lincoln could be viewed as a “conservative revolutionary,” and proposed that there were three main ways in which Lincoln as
In the mid-19th Century Europe, between 1750 and 1850, consisted of instability in families, due to the transition of the industry, therefore, emerged society to adapt. This industrial era impacted the lives in society, however, it all seemed normal. Although it appeared to be normal, it examined the differences in genders and their social classes. In addition, the importance of the industrial era allowed society to experience a unique way of living. The insecurity of this industrial age ultimately led insecurity discrepancies in families.
The reading this week brought to my attention that historic events have a way of repeating themselves. In Folklore of the Freeway, Eric Avila explains that during the “Freeway Revolt” there were different ways that communities organized and the types of issues they were fighting against. These issues and organization structures mirror current day protests. Likewise, the connections between how women were treated with respect to protests during the “Freeway Revolt” and the recent Women's match are astounding. In the context of these two events, white women are seen as saints for fighting a fight that doesn’t affect them, while women of color as ridiculed for making a big deal out of nothing.
Would it be good to have a country split without any arguments or a country as a whole full of arguments? In the beginning of 1860, The South wanted to secede from the Union, but the Union didn’t like that idea. Months later, they began a war. There were many reasons why the South wanted to secede but the main reasons were because of slavery disagreements, sectionalism, and political arguments. The southern states seceded from the Union because of sectionalism, political differences, and slavery disagreements.
Blood, death, tears, and shouts, that was life in the Civil War for a soldier. In 1861, the Civil War begun and the states that had once been united were now turning against each other. Texas fought for the South and was the 7th state to join the Confederacy. Texas had a military with about 65,000 Texan soldiers within it and almost a fifth of these fighters perished. Men of all ages were marching off to war in different states, and women and children were left waiting anxiously for their return.
The Industrial Revolution caused tension between the North and the South. The north mostly concentrated on manufacturing products and south grew the raw materials used to make those products. Since the north concentrated on manufacturing, there wasn’t a high demand for slaves. Meanwhile, the south grew for example cotton, and many other raw materials so there was a high demand for slavery since white people did not want to do low-paying, unskilled and hard labor. On January 1808, the north and a few southern congressmen, voted to abolish the slave trade.
Slavery became a key issue in the arguments of the north and the south. The south was very agricultural while the north was industrial. The south feared the declaration of freedom for the slaves by government leaders in the north. Government officials at the time were not interested in ending Slavery in the slave states, but instead in keeping newly admitted states from becoming slave states. The first official disagreement of this came in 1820.
As the antebellum Americans made several advancements in technological innovations, this helped the North overcome the South agriculturally. With the new inventions such as the cotton gin, the reaper, the steel tipped plow, and new ways to revive unfertile soil, the North had many advantages to aid them while they were gone to war. As these new inventions were created each had an impact on how and why the differences between the North and South came to be. Although the creation of the cotton gin by Eli Whitney improved the South’s economy it also made the South more dependent on slaves.
.
