On the other hand, Thoreau is not entirely hateful towards the wealthy. He explains that “the best thing a man can do for his culture when he is rich is to endeavor to carry out those schemes which he entertained when he was poor” (Thoreau 10).

In the second verse Hill says “Phony nationalism”. This is speaking on how America is seen as such a great country even though America has been the cause of genocides, discrimination, slavery, and racism. We can 't just forget the injustices past citizens and ancestors have faced just because the world we are living in today is safer than it was then.

The South was already in a weaker position in the industrial strength of its geographical coalition that it was amazing that they were as close to actually succeeding in their mission. They lacked the ability to replenish their troops with guns and ammunition and in many cases had to gather this gear from failed Confederate and Union soldiers.
