The Civil War was a bloody, well fought war that lasted 4 years between the Union (the Northern States) and the Confederacy (the Southern states.) This war would determine what type of nation it would become. Would the Union be split instead of preserved? Would the Union be free while the Confederate states had slaves? The bloody, gruesome war lasted four years and involved many men, women and children. Photographers captured the truth about the war. Matthew Brady, a famous photographer, took many photos that had a lasting impact on people’s perceptions of the war.. The photos of the Civil War affected the American people as a whole. The publication of Civil War battle photos affected the opinions of the
The actions of the “Sons of Liberty” maintained their effect similarly in the war, Revere as one of the greatest contributors. His original craft of engraving and printing introduced the printing of bills used to fund the war:“One of the first acts of the second Continental Congress, which met in Philadelphia May 10, 1775, was to authorize the issue of a sum not exceeding two millions of Spanish milled dollar bills of credit ‘for the defence of America’.

Deep bruises, sprained and broken bones, torn muscles, and strained tendons are some of the injuries that Brett Favre, one of the most famous and successful football quarterbacks of all time, has endured throughout his career. But the most dangerous and life-impacting injuries he has had were concussions. Because of this, Favre is now a leader for safer play and new technology for football and other sports leagues. The NFL and other leagues have made some changes to try to diagnose concussions but not really to prevent them. Professional and college sports leagues must do more to prevent concussions because new research shows there are long-term complications from having multiple concussions, players
Campanella: Roy Campanella was the Brooklyn Dodgers all-star catcher from 1948 until 1957. Campanella’s baseball career ended early due to a car accident in 1958. His car skidded on a wet spot on the road, crashed into a telephone pole, and his car was overturned, fracturing two of his vertebrae. He survived, but was paralyzed from the shoulders down and never played baseball again, causing the Dodgers to lose their all-star catcher. Campanella had four other siblings and had four jobs by age nine in order to pay for family needs. The accident shows how anything can happen at any time and could cause profound effects on society which still happens even today. (BC)
“I don’t know how old my phone is, but it was $10” - Andrew Luck. This is very ironic because Andrew Luck is one of the best quarterbacks in the NFL and he just signed the most expensive contract with the Indianapolis Colts in NFL history worth $122 million over 5 years plus a $32 million signing bonus. If he has a $10 cell phone then that leaves a lot of money to donate or do whatever he wants. But he also risks his life every time he goes out on the field because it is a known fact that concussions kill people. Plus he already acquired a couple injuries in the past and he just turned 27 on September 12th. Him, and all the other NFL athletes deserves the pay they earn now, if not more, because they risk their bodies/lives just for our
