The three texts, “The Drummer Boy of Shiloh” by Ray Bradbury, Soldier’s Heart by Gary Paulsen and Civil War Journal by Louisa May Alcott share the common theme of importance of an individual’s contribution during the Civil War. The main character, Joby, from “The Drummer Boy of Shiloh’ contributed to the Civil War by leading the whole army of soldiers into battle. Charley from Soldier’s Heart contributed during the Civil War by volunteering to fight in the war, as a soldier. Louisa May Alcott, the main character and author of Civil War Journal aided the wounded soldiers, as a nurse. Therefore, these three stories all bring the significance of an independent’s Civil War contribution to life.
Sending someone back to their family alive was probably the greatest action they could’ve done. Nurses accomplished astonishing acts of kindness by helping a wounded victim every day they were on duty. Although nurses frequently saw soldiers distraught by war, they still cherished being able to assist in treatment of the soldiers’ injuries. Nurses coming home from their precarious days in Vietnam felt strong resentment towards the war and some even joined anti-war campaigns. Women felt stressed and out of place, but
The union who was of the north was for abolishing slavery which many felt were wrong even though they still didn’t consider them equal. The south was comprised of the confederacy which was a bunch of plantation owners who owned many slaves that tilled their fields. The north was losing at first two years after the start of the war the union allowed for runaway slaves and freed slaves to join its ranks. This was a major turning point now since white men fought alongside black men they were equal on the battlefield but not in pay. The union used the railway system they had to transport troops and food a lot easier than the south was able to.
Major changes have begun to take started occurring during Civil War period, making the United States the leading and most successful industrial power in the world. Although that does not suggest that the United States as a whole cooperated with one another as a nation at peace. The North and the South’s way of life differ significantly from each other. While the North continued to grow industrially, economically, and in population, the South resisted to follow the same path as the North. Slavery survived the years during the Revolution, but major changes in the economy made any chance of unity between the slave-free North and the slave-driving South nearly impossible.
The Union, that was under Abraham Lincoln, keep the Northern states together and able to operate better. They were able to function as a whole unit rather than separate states like the south had done. By having this, they were able to keep their government together and on the same page. The South wasn’t able to function as a
From the dawn of the United States, there were clear sectional differences in the county. The South had slaves and the North did not. The North had mercantilism and the South had agriculture. The founding fathers had the chance to vastly change these differences by abolishing slavery in the Constitution, but they feared the Constitution not being ratified by the Southern states. These differences, while at the time, may have seemed small, gave our country two unique economies.
Uncompromising differences between the South (Confederacy) and the North (Union) created a civil war that lasted five years. During this war, Abraham Lincoln was president. His election led to the secession of many Southern states. After refusing to recognize the Confederacy as its own nation, the American Civil War commenced in 1861. The three main causes of the Civil War between the North and the South were industrial and agricultural economies, politics, and slavery.
A nurse's journal, a drummer boys story and volunteering soldier's story all have a similar theme to show how different parts of the army help keep everything together and not all over the place. In the story “The Drummer Boy of Shiloh” it stated, “You are the heart of the army.” This shows that drummer boys are very important because they keep the “heart “ beating. In Louisa's Civil War Journal it stated “Cutting up food for helpless “boys”...” This proves that if there was no nurse than the soldiers with no arms would not be able to eat.
The American Civil War changed Americans and their ideals about freedom in many ways. Northern and Southern United states began to have simmering tensions for the states’ rights versus federal authority, plus westward expansion, and slavery had huge effects on the states. An election which made anti-slavery Republican Abraham Lincoln the president of the United States of America in 1860, caused seven of the southern states to concede from the Union to make The Confederate States Of America soon after four more joined afterwards. It changed Americans in many ways as neighbors fought each other through the 4 gruesome years of the war. Conflict between the sides were like fights between brother and brother instead with many deaths.
“A house divided against itself cannot stand -- I believe this government cannot endure permanently half slave and half free” (Riggs 1). In the 1850’s the North’s economy and the South’s economy were very different from each other. The North relied on industries and had no need for slavery. While the South mostly relied on agriculture and slavery. After many disagreements over slavery it led to the Civil War.
35- “Civil War Journal” in StudySync Booklet)”. Although Alcott is homesick and weary, she finds strength and nourishment in helping others through an obstreperous era. Trials can create a positive outcome. The realities about Alcott’s character are that she must face what she used to think about war and that it was exhilarating in an adventurous and entertaining way, but she soon discovers war is all about survival once she begins nursing. She must also face her patient’s needs and orders to keep them alive for as soon as possible, but to also take care of them cautiously.
Louisa May Alcott’s gothic horror story “A whisper in the dark” is a short story that is brought together by certain scenes that relate to the whole story and bring it to complete disclosure. Guy, Sybil’s cousin and husband-to-be walks in on a scene where he discovers his father proposing marriage and embracing his soon to be fiancé. He comes to the wrong conclusion that Sybil had said yes and leaves without looking back. This turn of events leaves Sybil in a heart broken state and she is finally able to deny her uncle of the proposal that he offered. This scene brings the whole story to the terrifying and saddening ending that it has.
“The emerging woman… will be strong-minded, strong-hearted, strong-souled, and strong-bodied… strength and beauty must go together.” Introduced to the novel of Little Women at the age of 11, I quickly fell under the trance of Louisa May Alcott’s astounding writing.
Once, in a North/South House divided speech, Lincoln announced prophetically, the potential for slavery to divide the nation. The election of Lincoln as President in 1861, sparked the South to separate from the North. The idea of splitting up had been growing for many years in the South and the election of a president opposed to slavery was the final straw. However, Lincoln strongly opposed the breakaway of the South and so this led to the American civil war. He oversaw many of the military aspects of the war and promoted the general Ulysses S Grant to oversee the northern forces.
