The commander thinks that it would be better to turn tail for both of the armies, Union and Confederates, and train for months. He describes how men actually died in war, you have to make one Army from all the of the men, and in order to do that, he needed Joby. Joby is the heart of the army, he controls the fingers which are the soldiers. If he beats his drum slowly, the next day the soldiers will lie upon the fields, their hearts slowed. They would be brought down by enemy fire.
A Rumor of War by Philip Caputo shows the hard work and difficult tasks the men had to go through to prove themselves and protect their country. The war will change the men’s attitudes and the way they do everything. Men made sacrifices in the Vietnam War most people would never make in a lifetime, they will not just sacrifice but push themselves physically harder than most any other men. The men will also emotionally change from constantly watching other men die, or killing other men. The mens first kill was always the hardest for them, mentally they had so many thoughts of the other mans close ones back home and what they would go through and how it would be all their fault.
This is shown by the dialogue of coach Boone saying "if we don't come together, right now, on this hallowed ground, then we too will be destroyed". This is saying that like the confederate army, if they do not accept all races than they will be destroyed and will not achieve anything during the season. This speaks to the boys as the camera zooms to show their faces and that they are determined. They are determined to win, and are realizing that winning is more important than any prejudice they may have. This shows that the run to Gettysburg is a turning point, as they are beginning to overcome adversity.

The first stanza opens in the middle of a battle with “Charge for the guns!” and where it takes place. The no agency of the man who gives the order to attack underlines that the important figures of the poem are the six hundred men of the Light Brigade. The fearlessness of the soldiers appears represented in the second, third and fourth stanzas of the poem, together with the description of the events which took place. The rhetorical question of the second stanza presents the six hundred soldiers as being confident and brave, since any of them “dismay’d", despite knowing they were charging towards their deaths. “Boldly they rode and well” injects another value of the soldiers of the light brigade: valour.
He remained headstrong, stubborn and selfish in his actions, even warranting rebuke from the men on certain occasions. This is seen in the very first conflict that is witnessed on the pages of The Iliad. Agamemnon is faced with the request to give up his war prize, and immediately and indignantly decides against all the council of the army in order to keep his prize of a woman (28). With this decision, he sought his own desires selfishly and disconnected himself from the men he was meant to lead. Granted, he possessed a strong will, a thing very necessary for good leadership.
In times of war, soldiers must surpass obstacles and be ready to face challenges. Witnessing the valiant efforts of these men that throw their lives on the line instills an insurmountable sense of pride in the hearts of spectators. Both Lord Alfred Tennyson’s poem and Richard Caton Woodville Jr.’s illustration entitled “The Charge of the Light Brigade” incorporate literary terms to express their feeling of pride towards the Light Brigade. Tennyson exhibits this by using repetition to signify the danger of fighting in battle, in addition to imagery to help the reader imagine how terrifying war is, while setting a respectful tone. Woodville shows a feeling of pride through the setting, symbolism, and powerful imagery.

On page 79 it states, “ Then the Fuhrer handed Dieter the medal.” Another symbol was Spencer’s heart. Spencer’s heart was the thing that made him join the army but also made him lose his life because he felt like he had to save the boy on the hill ( Dieter ). On page 22 it states, “ I think that you want to prove something to LuAnn Crow-ther.” In Solider Boys, two significant characters are Dieter and Spencer. First, Dieter is a 10 year old boy who is a member of the German “ Young People”. Dieter knows all about the last war and wants to fight and bring pride to his family.
there were two really important generals for the Confederates one of the generals, General Robert E.Lee. The general for the Union is, General George B. Mcclellan. The two Generals had been a very big threat since they had been good in school and also on the field. The Union had 75,300 soldiers and the Confederate had 52,000 soldiers. no2 one really won this war because they both retreated at the same time since so many people had died, and all around it was brutal and horrifying and a war we would surely never forget.
