If it weren't for these prejudice thoughts, many people would be together united as one fighting to better one another. As Brent states in “Black Men and Public Space,” “the hatred he feels for blacks makes itself known to him through a variety of avenues - one being his discomfort with that ‘special brand of paranoid touchiness’ to which he says blacks are prone.” (514). Due to this fear of one another, it has brought much tension among many. This discrimination has been going on for many years and is what makes the United States divided. These many examples provided by Brent proved these exact points and showed the belitting of African Americans within Americas society.
Longstreet and Lee definitely do not see eye to eye on a lot of things when it comes to the war. The biggest thing that the two disagree about is the war strategy. Longstreet sees that the war is changing and he understands that if the Confederacy keeps using the same tactics for war that they will not come out on top at the end of this war. Longstreet is a firm believer in trench warfare and waiting for the enemy to come to him. Longstreet says at one point, when John Buford’s Calvary is on its way to sneak up on the Confederates, “Now all we have to do is swing around between him Washington and get astride some nice thick rocks and make him come to us, and we’ve got him in the open.” (p. 83).

Somebody once remarked, “No man is good enough to govern another man without the other's consent” (“Abraham Lincoln Quotes"). At the initial view, the Civil War was going to be won by the South. Nonetheless, all that changed when Abraham Lincoln constructed the Emancipation Proclamation because it did not solely free slaves, it further altered antiquity for the salutary and assisted the North in the war, which led to their triumph. The Emancipation Proclamation was Abraham Lincoln’s greatest achievement as president. The Emancipation Proclamation freed many slaves because Lincoln sent out a preliminary Emancipation Proclamation, it fabricated the thirteenth amendment, and it encouraged other areas to end slavery as well.
Lee shows us that many different people have many different views of success and these views of this success shows them what they must do to achieve it. He also says “Gettysburg is of no importance” (Shaara 145). The Confederate States and the Union states both have the ultimate goal of defeating the other but in the armies of both sides separate officers want to achieve different things. On the subject of his opposing general in the Union forces Lt. General Armstrong of the Confederate states said “That man will fight us every day and every hour till the end of the war”(brotherswar.com). Grant was determined to defeat the Confederate forces completely and set his sights to take Richmond and end the war.

Making its debut in 2000, Remember the Titans is a film about how an African American coach Herman Boone faced with multiple challenges changes the existing ideologies of the whole town through the game of football. A film that is dramatically devastating is characterized by the transforming character dynamics, vintage setting, and compelling dialogue while inconsistent in its authenticity. Director Boaz Yakin is undeviating from this them of change that he portrays through both character development and dialogue. Arguably, coach Boone, starring as the central character in the movie he is unwavering in his position as a roughneck who is strong in his convictions. This is seen by the audience in his numerous collusions with defensive line coach Bill Yoast and players.
Anyone who has been to Gettysburg knows that it is a profound experience to tour the quiet Little Round Top, Cemetery Ridge, Seminary Hill, and other hallowed ground. To fully fathom all the lives lived, the hopes and dreams of those incredibly scared and brave young boys who laid down their lives to save our country and end the injustice of slavery is impossible. Touring that battlefield is a humbling experience, but looking over the now-tranquil fields of Gettysburg made me question whether that sacrifice was worth it, when so much prejudice and hatred still lives on in America. When we came to the spot where President Lincoln delivered the Gettysburg Address, I reflected on the speech that I consider to be one of the most important in American history. It is one of those speeches that has stood the test of time, and is as important today as it was 154 years ago.
In the battle of shiloh Grant was able to fight off the confederate soldiers and hold them off while getting reinforcements and eventually being able to win the battle.

General Grant Despite its disastrous start, Shiloh was a major victory for Grant.

Though he lost many men, his concern was to win the battle, and eventually the war.

If it weren 't for the battle of Ezra, the Confederates would still have plenty of supply lines to prepare for a variety of attacks. When the Confederates got word that the Union was attacking the left, they found that they needed reinforcements. Two groups of men had to back away to prepare for a future attack. This is where strategy comes into play, if they lost the battle, then they can cause all of their men to die and the war might end with just that one move. So
To become a good general he had to overcome a lot like his dad and older sister dying when he was Three years old, his mother dying, or being sent to Jacksons mill because his Step-Dad didn 't like him.

Manziel has it set in his mind that he is the best and nobody can ever overcome him and with that he is become a bust. I know that with our high school football team I don’t want to be remembered as the kid that had it in him, just wouldn’t put in the effort and was focused on the wrong things. Instead, Mariota is the perfect role model for high school athletes because he never stopped his grind, he did what he set out to do and is only getting better. The way I see it is one can do all the talking and get all the attention in the world but if one doesn’t do anything with it then what 's the point? The way I see it is there is always work to be done, just because I might of reached the goals I’m aiming for, doesn’t mean that’s all for me to do, someone else is working for the same goals as me.
