Southern soldiers viewed the confederacy as their country and were compelled to fight for the safety of it. Confederate soldiers enlisted to protecting their native lands from what they understood as invaders. The Confederacy sentiments of the Union was they were imposing upon the southern way of life. For instance, a young soldier from Kentucky wrote “sink or swim, survive or perish” (McPherson 11). The average Confederate soldier felt that they the Union was trying to destroy the legacy of the founder fathers by enslaving them and reversing the actions of the American Revolution.
In the news today, a continual debate can be found about the significance of Confederate monuments and if they should remain or be removed. Confederate monuments that have been erected throughout the U.S. should be kept because of the preservation of America’s history. For instance, in the article, The Unbearable Lightness of Confederate-Statue Removal, the author lists how slaveholder monuments aren’t the only statues being vandalized, but the Lincoln Memorial and Mount Rushmore are other symbols of U.S. history that some believe need to “blow up” (Murdock). Every historical symbol can have both people who appreciate it and who oppose it. That doesn’t mean that we should tear down all symbols, but symbols in appropriate context lead to better
Owen was taken out of the war where he began writing poems. He wrote his poems to show both his anger at the cruelty and waste of war. (BBC) Owen used this poem to show the misconception that war is. While people outside of the war thought it was honorable, soldiers like Owen himself, know how cruel and it really is. Through the use of imagery, figurative language, and tone, Owen is able to portray the misconception and cruelty of war.
He appeals to the audiences emotions in this speech by paying homage for the soldiers in the civil war, implying “that from these honored dead we take increased devotion … that we here highly resolve that these dead shall not have died in vain” (Lincoln, 1863). Lincoln does this to emphasize the greatness of these soldiers, dying so that everyone can be equal, ending slavery and uniting the country. By saying this, it hit the audiences emotionally, making them feel mournful and sympathy towards the soldiers, especially those who had a family member fighting in that war. Moving to the last sentence in the last paragraph, Lincoln’s tone changes from a mournful tone to a more enthusiastic and hopeful tone suggesting, “that this nation, under God, shall have a new birth of freedom and that government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth.” (Lincoln, 1863). Lincoln has used anaphora in the phrase “government of the people, by the people, for the people” to give the audience a sense of hope and victory.
Uncle Tom 's Cabin, written by Harriet Breecher Stowe, is still critically acclaimed and recognized today for its prolific affects towards the abolition of slavery in the United States. It opened the eyes of Northerner 's and Southerners alike to the horrors of slavery and its degradation of another human being. Challenging the notion at that time, that slaves were property and not "human", Stowe 's work asserts that slaves too were thinking, feeling, and valuable human beings. Through her writings, Stowe presented the reader another view about the "peculiar institution"; that slavery was not only morally offensive, but a reflection of the base rational held by those who supported the act. In her novel, Stowe primarily focuses on how the treatment of slaves reflects the real attitude amongst citizens towards slavery.
But Stowe defended herself with A Key to Uncle Tom 's Cabin: Presenting the Original Facts and Documents upon which the story is founded (Crowfield 535). A Key to Uncle Tom 's Cabin: Presenting the Original Facts and Documents upon which the story is founded is to show what she used to write the original Uncle Tom’s Cabin. Uncle Tom’s Cabin then started a heated debate over slavery where she was praised in the north by some, “but criticized by abolitionists for being too lenient; In the south she was reviled” (Crowfield 535). Southerners and pro slavery writers “believed that Stowe exaggerated the condition of slaves in the south” (Cumberland 312). Stowe was not the first to create anti-slavery works,
When Franz Ferdinand announced that he will be leaving to Sarajevo to greet the townspeople on June 28, 1914, a terrorist organization called the ‘Black Hand’ had meticulously arranged an attack against Franz Ferdinand. Due to unfortunate circumstances, one of the assassins had the opportunity to shoot the Archduke since the driver had turned on the wrong road. Due to these nationalistic feelings between certain countries, World War I occurred since the collective consciousness among a nation’s people deeply impacted the rest of the world with its rebellion against a country. World War I was inevitable to occur since these people had seriously rebelled against a more powerful country and remained obstinate to continue their fight until they had achieved their desires. Eventually, other countries joined the conflict to side with either Austria-Hungary or the
This applies to Hitler because he was both feared and loved by many. Germany was not in good shape after WWI and when Hitler came and assured the people recovery, they could not refuse. In the end Hitler brought down the unemployment in Germany from 7 million to only 1 million in 12 months. Hitler knew how he could maintain his leadership, because one thing he knew was that he was feared by his enemies/opponents. Because of the great power that Hitler had, plenty of his political opponents would be commanded to be scared away or executed.
Thomas Nast, 1840-1902, was a political cartoonist who is known by some historians as “the father of modern political American political cartooning” (Simpson, ANBO). This is due in part because Nast was the person who created the donkey symbol to represent the Democratic Party and elephant symbol to represent the Republican Party. Moreover, Nast earned this title because he changed the way cartoonists delivered their context. Before the Civil War cartoonist relied on dialogue rather than images to get the message across, however; Nast used the image to convey the message of his cartoons (Simpson, ANBO). Subsequently, Nast reached the illiterate community more effectively than other cartoonists of his time.
However the revolution still held devastating effects. The murals created during the revolution would be at fault for the development of depression for many people. Yet putting those two things aside the bigger picture appears. Nationalism was at its peak for the country. These people believed that their leader was abusing his power, and they fought back.
Johnson had once talked tough against southern farmers, he allied himself with ex-Confederate leaders, and he forgave them when they appealed for pardons. This delighted southerners, of course,
Hostilities between the Union and the Confederacy prompted The Civil War. At this time in our history the North wanted to abolish slavery, while the South supported slavery.

The Gettysburg National Military Park captures life in the midst of war, where the soldiers lived in camps as they were subjected to demanding conditions. During this time, Abraham Lincoln honored the heroic soldiers with The Gettysburg Address.

As seen from articles from Confederate Veteran Magazine, the Confederate spirit was upheld throughout the years, mostly by women who felt the need to avenge husbands, brothers, and fathers ' deaths . They did things like erect monuments and statues in honor of heroic Confederate leaders, and taught their version of Civil War history in their schools. Together, many ex Confederates and their supporters formed the southern democratic political party, that upheld the Confederates beliefs and ways of life. Their opposers, the southern republicans, were mercilessly attacked repeatedly by the democrats, in an attempt the avenge the Confederacy. The lost cause split the south
The 1950s harbored one of the largest witch hunts in world history, the second Red Scare. This brutal political movement targeted Communists, Socialists, and members of subversive groups, physically and socially maiming those citizens. Led by Joseph McCarthy, innocent members of society were figuratively “burned at the stake” in public trials and accused them of Communism and espionage. McCarthy’s ruthless tactics sparked the development of “McCarthyism,” which today refers to any unfounded accusation of a person with immaterial evidence. The second Red Scare is comparable to Salem Village, Massachusetts where the original witch hunt began, based off of mass hysteria, just like the Red Scare.
