However, he also wished that it end peacefully. He wished that once the fighting had ceased and the war was declared over, that the North and South care for each other as they do their own people. But, a peace would be very difficult to achieve due to how long this war had been going on and how many lives were lost in this conflict. By this quote from the final lines of the Second Inaugural Address by Lincoln, “With malice toward none; with charity for all; with firmness in the right, as God gave us to see the right, let us strive on to finish the work we are in; to bind up the nation’s wounds; to care for him who shall have borne the battle, and for his widow, and his orphan - to do all which may achieve and cherish a just and lasting peace among ourselves, and with all nations,” Lincoln showed his true emotion and feelings about the war.

So, we have to start out with the main story and why everyone is arguing. Antigone's brother Polyneices has died and they are trying to decide on how to bury his body. Antigone finds her uncle Creon’s laws unjust and wants to have her brother buried because she believes in the laws of God. Creon strongly believes in the political and social order of things.
Four people try to convince Creon of the errors of his actions. Antigone’s justification for burying her brother’s body is to honor and respect him, thus following the gods’ law and proving loyalty to her brother and respect for the gods. Haemon’s appeal voices the peoples’ support, Antigone’s righteous behavior, and confesses his love for her. Teiresias’ prophecy foreshadows Creon’s punishment, or two debts, if he disobeys the laws of the

In Martin Luther King Jr.’s “Eulogy for the Martyred Children”, and in Eugene Patterson’s “A Flower for the Graves”, both men use their passages to lay blame upon the people. King uses blame to implant the idea of change, that the death of these girls is the time to go and redeem their mistakes. He blames the politicians who “fed his constituents with the stale bread of hatred and the spoiled meat of racism”. Martin Luther King knew of his impact on the community, he knew that many people would know his speech than the people that were gathered for the funeral, so he blamed the politicians, because he knew they would read the eulogy, and he wanted them to know that they held some of the blame for the deaths of the girls. Eugene Patterson also does something similar, except instead of blaming the politicians, he blamed the white south as a whole for electing them.

By analyzing John White 's watercolor replicas of engravings by Theodore De Bry we can tell how John White 's journey to establish a colony in Raleigh 's charter territory, Virginia, in 1587 affected his few of the Native Americans. Even though this journey ended in bad blood between the two very different people, a look into their life gave John White greater respect for their passion for family, friends, and religion.
