However this new tactic would not stop the assault of the American
The French additionally needed the English out of "their" domain, so they collected a gathering to oppose the approaching English, made up of thirty-five French armed force men, and twelve native fighters. In this way, on the twenty-eighth of May in 1754, Washington and his men had an arrangement to sneak into the French camp and take the land for themselves and for the British, yet the one of the French men spotted them and afterward shots rang out loud all around. This was the principal fight that lighted the French and Indian War.

A year after the Overland Campaign was completed, and after months of desperately defending Richmond, the Confederates surrendered in April 1865, ending the Civil War.

The commander thinks that it would be better to turn tail for both of the armies, Union and Confederates, and train for months.

The battlefield of Austerlitz was the site of Napoleon’s great victory over the Russian, Austrian and Holy Roman Empire in 1805. (Wikipedia: Battle of Austerlitz). Conversely, is Napoleon’s defeat at Waterloo in 1815 by Britain and Prussia. (Wikipedia: Battle of Waterloo) As a result, this juxtaposition creates a tension in the verse at the very beginning of the poem, making the intention clear that this poem is about both the horror of war, and the battles being mere markers in the passage of time. Gettysburg is the only battlefield referenced not located in Europe and since Sandburg was American one can assume he was writing for what was largely an American audience.

Further, it must have come into his mind that his force was only operating at 70% strength from the outset with the removal of Benteen’s battalion (Neuman, 2001). Whatever his mitigations may have been, it is clear that the risk he took turned out to be imprudent, and the risk he accepted led to his battalion being isolated from the rest of his command where it was summarily encircled and annihilated (Collins,
