Writers are often inspired by people and the events that they experience in their life by using these experiences as a basis for their voice and identity in writing. The American Civil War that was fought between the Northern United States and the Southern states in 1861 to 1861 was one of these significant moments. The Southern states, also known as the Confederate States of America, fought for the right to form their own independent nation and determine their own destiny (“Civil War”). They mainly did this to keep the US federal government from intervening with African American slavery. After four violent years, the Civil War ended with a Union, also known as the Northern United States, victory in 1865 (“Civil War”).
Fearful of abolitionists seeking to incite a slave insurrection to overthrow the southern society, southerners resorted to mass burnings of mail from northern outlets in an attempt to quell the anti-slavery messages. Further, southerners viewed these efforts as an undermining of their right to property that “God...entrusted to [their] charge” and became further convinced of northern ambitions to eradicate slavery and the slaveholders themselves. Despite the abolitionists consisting of a small number of people, the overarching impact of their propaganda and literature caused southerners to take drastic measures as many in the slave states increasingly felt their livelihoods and safety were under attack by an anti-slavery north. The manifestation of this paranoia in slaveholders would in essence create a connotation of the anti-slavery movement with that of the entirety of the “free” states and northern
Because of session the nation fell apart. (Mrs. Wise) I would say the main cause of the civil war is slavery. North didn't like slavery and the south wanted it. They made the Missouri compromise but north thought slavery should be emitted from America so they were going to have to fight.
The flag of the Confederacy was also another symbol of Southern Nationalism. “The Confederate government quickly became for the South, the successor to the federal government at Washington. A flag, the “ Stars and Bars,” was adopted for the new republic after a study by a committee that concluded that keeping the United States “Stars and Stripes” would be impractical and unpatriotic.” Southerners feared that white supremacy was in danger and feared slave rebellions. This was heightened by national events like John Brown’s Raid. This unified the South against the abolition of slavery
The Civil War was a war between the North and South of the United States. There was many causes of the Civil War.

During the Reconstruction era, the South resisted the North’s help and Reconstruction died. Resistance means to oppose an offer or an offering. Southern resistance killed Reconstruction socially, economically, and politically. The South killed Reconstruction socially in the South by allowing a group called the KKK to take control and harm citizens. The Klu Klux Klan (KKK) was a group of white southerner men who publicly tortured or brutally harmed blacks and republicans for several reasons.
It symbolizes the birthright of a nation, the heritage of liberty purchased with blood and sorrow. The Civil War was fought from 1861 to 1865, it started because of uncompromising differences between the free and slave states over the power of the national government to prohibit

This quote seems conflictive that citizens of a country themselves feel they are exiled by their homeland. If this quote is interpret in another way, it seems that King is warning African Americans that they should stand for their civil rights from now.

The flag represents hate even if you don't like that. And yes some of the Nazis of long ago said that until the day they died..... that the symbol represented a way of life and not hatred.... tell that to all the Jews, gypsies, and prostitutes who were killed. If you still don't agree that we should just take down the flag then the actual the maker, William Thompson, of the "Stainless Banner" (the Confederate flag, set on white) and created in 1863 is quoted as saying: "As a national emblem, it is significant of our higher cause, the cause of a superior race, and a higher civilization contending against ignorance, infidelity, and barbarism. Another merit in the new flag is, that it bears no resemblance to the now infamous banner of the Yankee vandals." The confederate flag is symbolic of discrimination and hate.
This resparked the everlasting debate, is the confederate flag a flag of history or hate. Some believe that it is a flag of hate and want it taken down from the state house but, I believe that the confederacy is a flag of history, symbolizing the many people who died in the civil war and proud southern culture, and should remain flying. The confederate flag is a symbol of the civil
The Civil is a war between two territories or more, the North and South in this case, were the two territories to fight for one goal. North wanted to abolish slavery, and the South wanted to keep it. War didn’t start from one man hitting another, in fact the war had a cause to it. The Southern people were worried about the North establishing a new nation. Meaning to vote for a new president.
This battle is known as the The Battle of Pea Ridge. This key battle of the Civil War was led by General Samuel R. Curtis of the Union and General Earl Van Dorn of the Confederates. To begin with, before the battle of Pea Ridge the Union had a strong defensive position in Arkansas near LIttle Sugar Creek. The Confederate forces had commanded General Van Dorn to destroy the Union’s position at the Pea Ridge in Arkansas. General Van Dorn came up with a plan to attack the Union soldiers by marching around the Unions location and attacking rear sides.
As the Civil War continued many of the decisions made by the leaders led to different events and affected the outcome of the battle and how the Civil War would end. During the Battle of Jonesborough there were two generals that represented the North and South. The leader of the Union throughout the Atlanta campaign was General William T. Sherman. The top-ranked Confederate general during the campaign was Joseph E. Johnston, but was later replaced by General John Bell Hood. General Sherman’s main mission was to destroy the Atlanta railroad lines that Hood was
Hostilities between the Union and the Confederacy prompted The Civil War. At this time in our history the North wanted to abolish slavery, while the South supported slavery. A pivotal point in the Civil War was The Battle of Gettysburg.
