The American Civil War began in 1861 and it came to an end on 13th May 1865, with a victory for the North. However, in the past the South had won earlier battles of the war, at first they appeared to have strong military leadership. There were many reasons why the South did not win the war, other than their poor strategy within the military generals. Economic, social, political and military were one of the major factors. The North was better economically than the South, and this enabled the North to buy more guns, supplies, and equipment for the war.
This meant that “civilians in the south suffered the same hardships as the army” (Stoff 508). Another way he helped the outcome of the war is by winning at Vicksburg and Petersburg. One confederate leader was General George Pickett. He helped the course of the war by leading “15,000 men in a daring charge against the center of the union line” (Stoff 506). This was known as Pickett’s charge but it was an easy win for the union.
Comparing the fighting tactics used by the Union and the Confederacy, it is obviously prominent why the Union won the war.

Grant wanted to use two main military strategies to win the war. First, he wanted to combine military efforts.

In the end, we see that through Thomas’s leadership skills on the battlefield of Chickamauga and the determination to never give up would inspire the Union after their defeat. Thomas’s brilliant stand would allow the Union Army to escape and regroup in Chattanooga which would lead to a victory and the tare of the Confederacy’s communication lines dividing the South. This would give the Union the upper hand to successfully pursue the Confederacy and ultimately lead to the great defeat of the South. Thus General Thomas and Chickamauga would be a great catalyst to the Civil War that would be often overlooked by many historians of our time. Thomas would not stop here he would continue to be a great impact on the Union by having a hand in the victory
Since the election of 1864, soldiers recognized Lincoln’s greatness in strategic leadership. So, they ended up voting for Lincoln and their vote helped Lincoln to defeat George B. McClellan.

“During this time his drinking increased. He was an alcoholic, but he wrote sober.” ("F.Scott Fitzgerald Centenary."). which is highly relatable to Gatsby’s non-drinking habit at his parties. “It’s a great advantage not to drink among hard drinking people.” I guess you could say he was at work when he threw his parties, because his long-term goal was Daisy. However, Gatsby’s non-drinking lifestyle is completely opposite from Fitzgerald’s rarely being sober, alcohol did play a huge factor in Gatsby’s overall life and it is no surprise that Fitzgerald would imply it in Gatsby.

The Civil War, a cause not only for the end of slavery, but to bring back the Confederacy as well. Many thought that simply because the North had a clear advantage over the South, such as population or weaponry, the war would end quickly, people picnicked on the first battles of war, watching the battles, but they didn’t fully realize how deadly new weapons had evolved. A single shot could easily kill anyone within range. People soon found how effective technology had become, and how well the South could fight back. Throughout the earlier years of the war the Confederates won nearly all their major battles, such as the very first battle at Fort Sumter, or the following one at Bull Run.

Although, it may seem as if Torre likes to travel, according to Will, Torre hates planes and traveling. “Torre always kept it cool despite the outcome of the match”, according to Will, “but it was funny how excited Torre got after a goal or win”. Torre is a laid back, down to earth person. Will said “you wouldn’t think it off the field that he’s actually pretty competitive.” “He was independent and not necessarily a vocal leader, but led by his positive attitude and by always having fun while playing.” After high school, Torre decided to continue his passion for playing at the University of Mary Washington.
Battlefield morale is very important. An army with high morale is more likely to be victorious than one with low morale because it will fight harder. While there are factors to consider such as munition, size and maneuverability, no-one will deny the importance of battlefield morale. The effect of adding possibly thousands of soldiers forcibly would have a greatly detrimental effect upon the morale of the troops. In addition to this since these troops would be fighting amongst volunteer soldiers, they could potentially threaten the lives of other soldiers as well.
