“The turning point of the war. After his successes at Fredericksburg and Chancellorsville Lee invaded the North again. After trying to break the Union lines for two days he tries a frontal assault on the entrenched Union forces. “Pickett’s Charge” as this is known fails and Lee retreats back to Virginia. Never again would the South have a chance to win the war or threaten the North” (http://www.iss.k12.nc.us).
(American Eras 3) The population did help win the war for the North, but the South would not make the fight easy. Heavy losses recorded on both sides throughout the war caused sadness. Stephen Crane accurately uses Civil War medical practices, field conditions, and new weapons to show one can overcome loneliness and fear in The Red Badge of Courage. Stephen Crane was influenced by his surroundings to write about the Civil War.
However, the tank was without a doubt the best technological advancement during World War I because without it trench warfare would have become a never ending nuisance for soldiers of both opposing forces and the casualties by the end of the war would most likely have doubled. The invention of the tank changed the very nature of World War I and completely altered how future wars would be
Craters that were filled with rain and mud slowed the allied troops down leading to the Germans killing more allied soldiers, making the battle much more difficult and brutal. This resulted in the Battle of Passchendaele being one of the worst battles to participate in because the soldiers’ odds of injury or death were much higher than other battles fought during World War I. Although The Battle of Passchendaele was one of the most costly battles fought during the First World War it was not as significant as other battles fought during World War I. In mid-November the allies captured the ridge and gained only seven or eight kilometers of the town, the Germans would later recapture the town of Passchendaele. This reveals that the Battle of Passchendaele was the least significant battle to participate in because it wasn 't recognized the same way as other battles during First World War.
Effects from the Great War In the early 20th century during the Great War many problems occurred among the soldiers and civilians. Going into WW1, people really didn’t apprehend the severity and impact that the war would have on society and the soldiers, both mentally and physically. When the soldiers would return home from duty, it was hard for them to go back to their “everyday” lives especially if they came back wounded or mentally unstable. Life would become more of a coexistence rather than life, as they knew it before.
In the revolutionary war some rebels wished for a country where they could speak freely, have any religion, make their own rules, and determine their own taxes. (11) I think our founding fathers would be amazed to see that we are still alive, but then again maybe not because they know how much people will risk if they truly believe in something. (10) This is the war which America suffered its worst defeat because we were fighting ourselves.
Here at Gettysburg in Southern Pennsylvania after the three day battle and the win for the Union Gettysburg was brewed after the attack on Ft. Sumter. The Union won with a tactic! The tactic was to barricade and surround the town of Gettysburg on July 1-3 1863 and the Confederates were running low on supplies and the Confederates had no way to get their supplies because the Union was blocking the trade routes and the paths. We have word that 165,000 troops clashed on the Gettysburg fighting ground in the three day battle Abraham Lincoln made a code and the code’s name is the Gettysburg Address!
The cultural clash of ideologies is not only horizontal. The conflict in America also reaches vertically, similarly to the situation in Bury the Dead. In clarification, the goals of the mass population is unaligned with the goals of, to use a Victorian concept, the ruling class. In Shaw’s Bury the Dead, the Generals are human representations of this ruling class. They display the apathy, ignorance, recklessness and equal hopelessness in the face of war that an anti-war writer would testify is fundamentally characteristic, at least from the view of the mass population.
I must be a printer, I think confusedly, be a printer” (225). Here Remarque cautions the audience as to the terrible personal consequences killing entails, despite it being in self defence. He is so overwhelmed with grief that he believes that he must take the man 's place in life. The importance of this scene within a trauma narrative can be precisely explained by the article, “Representing Trauma”. Here, it is argued that “Trauma narritives engage readers in a number of important social and psychological issues” (Vickroy, 2).
Experiencing things such as the loss of comrades; the will to fight; mental fortitude; and the will to live. War may bring solution to a problem and bring about peace, but war is always a losing battle in which

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. By the end of the battle, both nations lost many troops. There was a total of 3,149 casualties.
Between American soldiers and civilians, the estimated death toll during World War 2 (WWII) reaches an outstanding 418,500 ("By the Numbers: World-Wide Deaths"). The success of American Soldiers on the battlefront required the efforts of each citizen back on American soil. In order to supply war efforts, the United States government began to place restrictions on items that were in high demand on the battlefront. This practice became known as rationing, and soon Americans knew all too well the sacrifices that came with surviving a war. How did rationing affect everyday life of those on the home front during WWII?
This battle of Gettysburg was deemed to be the most important battle in the civil war as it took a major turn. The confederates were able to fight back and become victorious over the Union in a very important two day battle. The Gettysburg address took place in order to dedicate a cemetery in Gettysburg for the fallen soldiers. Lincoln’s speech changed the entire mindset of the nation from believe that the states are all individuals fight against each other.
Total casualties at Antietam numbered 12,410 of some 69,000 troops on the Union side, and 13,724 of around 52,000 for the Confederates. The Union victory at Antietam would prove decisive, as it halted the Confederate advance in Maryland and forced Lee to retreat into Virginia. Still, McClellan’s failure to pursue his advantage earned him the scorn of Lincoln and Halleck, who removed him from command in favor of Ambrose E. Burnside. Burnside’s assault on Lee’s troops near Fredericksburg on December 13 ended in heavy Union casualties and a Confederate victory; he was promptly replaced by Joseph “Fighting Joe” Hooker, and both armies settled into winter quarters across the Rappahannock River from each other. ””Lee then moved his troops northwards and split his men, sending Jackson to meet Pope’s forces near Manassas, while Lee himself moved separately with the second half of the army.
