During the Civil War in the 19th century, one problem the war solved was to protect and keep the Union together. The war successfully stopped the South from seceding. That was the main purpose of the war before the question of ending slavery was the main goal of the war. Abraham Lincoln voiced that he did not want war when he was first elected, but when the slave states wanted to secede peacefully, Lincoln didn’t take that lightly. He felt that secession in any form is an exercise of power (Hakim 16). Lincoln was trying to get the Confederates to give in to the North by January 1st, 1863 (Lincoln 1862). This was a part of the Emancipation Proclamation and if the Confederates were to surrender, they could keep their slaves, and keep the Union
Prior to reading Elizabeth Keckley’s Behind the Scenes; or, Thirty Years a Slave and Four Years in the White House, I anticipated I would be reading about a woman in slavery with an unhappy past. I did not expect her story to end in a positive way. My expectations were to read of a woman bound in slavery that wrote memoirs of her saddened life and that life would continue until the day she died. I expected her to leave the home of a master and possibly become a maid or cook in the White House. I did not envision her becoming as successful as she did, her story far exceeded my expectations. Elizabeth Keckley's narrative had a positive outcome, once she was able to buy her freedom as well as her son's. She moved North and became popular
Mary’s husband, William John Hays, enlisted as a gunner in the Continental Army. As was common at the time, Mary stayed with her husband throughout the war. She served as a camp follower to her husband’s regiment. Other camp followers enlisted alongside Mary for shelter, work, food, and safety. Women were allowed to join because the army couldn’t afford to lose more soldiers due to family crisis, and with the wives nearby the soldiers would not need to unenlist to help their families in need. Given this extreme reasoning, the camp followers were not always wholly accepted into the group. Some soldiers were embarrassed having to admit they needed the women around, so they excluded the women to make themselves feel more
The common people who struggle, can see clearly. This is shown in literature such as The biography of Frederick Douglas.
A lot of North Carolina women showed uncooperative actions on the disorderliness by participating the protest in order to maintain their communities and social orders. These women would prefer to join the conflict that separated state and community rather than being its victims. Thus, their loyalties to husbands and sons, and strong determination of protecting their own property prompted them to disregard the female’s conventional behaviors. Bynum writes “woman have held their own very well on the “front line” against encroaching militia officers send to disloyal regions of the state to arrest deserters and evaders of the Confederate army.” Bynum emphasized the importance of women’s positions in evading the militia. They’re the visible partner who responsible for their children’s security. So women are the reliable sources that know the whereabouts of their family (husband and son).
