The telling emotions expressed in Patrick Gilmore's song, “When Johnny Comes Marching Home Again,” stand out to provide an important insight into the ending of the Civil War.

By hoping for their friend or relative to return, the people want to end the war.

We decided to hot seat Owen, a soldier who had been writing to his fiancée, and ask him questions to extend our understanding of his feelings. We asked him things about how it felt to be away from his fiancée – horrible and he missed her very much – and why he decided to join the army – to continue his father’s legacy and make him proud. This helped us recognize his character’s feelings and motives better than we would have had we not hot seated him. We also used thought tracking to see what the characters were thinking at certain points. An example of this would be just before the soldiers were about to attack, we paused it and Miss asked us to say out loud what we believed our character would be thinking at that moment in time.

In the spoken strategy there is especially an imbalance between the ends, ways and means to the desired end of a unified and free Europe. The ways in the strategy is only directed towards the city of Berlin.
William Lloyd Garrison was a white abolitionist in colonial America, and whose most well known exploit was running the abolitionist newspaper The Liberator. He was also one of the founders of the American Anti-Slavery Society.
