David and Jeanne Heidler, Old Hickory’s War Andrew Jackson and the Quest for Empire, goes in depth with the unpleasant encounters, disloyalties, and misunderstanding that provides a clear story during this time in History.

My intention with this essay is to give a wider understanding on why the speech happened and just what impact it has had on the country.

The Civil War has had a significant impact in history for the nation today. It reconstructed our ideas about our freedom and equality. The Civil war was a very devastating time during the mid 1800’s. Things such as slavery, racism,and segregation took over. People had sacrificed their lives to devote freedom for our soon to come nation.

They believed that they should be forced to continue working on plantations, which is Johnson enacted the Black Codes, which were meant to force former slaves to work back on plantations.
Radical Reconstruction took place in 1865, and ended in 1877. Reconstruction started when Abraham Lincoln became president in 1861. When Lincoln was elected president, he put our country to war the north against the south to abolish slavery. This war was the Civil War. The Civil War lasted from 1861 to 1865.

This two day battle was an advantage for the Union, but still suffered many losses. The Union lost over 100 soldiers and had many casualties. General Sherman was able to achieve his mission, which was to destroy the Atlanta railroad lines and because of this the industrial city was vulnerable.

Lee had the intention of drawing the Union’s men out into the open, and having his army attack them right then and there. As Lee and his army approached Gettysburg, Lee became aware that there was a shoe factory nearby, and that most of his army did not have shoes, so they started heading to the shoe factory.

In this short paper I will go over my thoughts on this week’s required reading. This week we read Chapter One of the FTA 215 text. In the beginning of chapter one we were introduced the AR-15 platform. The author stated that “A great deal of confusion and misunderstanding surround this firearm.
