Epically when compared to the confederates weapons, soldiers and such to the northern. The union won the civil war do to their high-tech weapons that beat the confederates own weapons. The union had the numbers, with twenty-one million people in their twenty-three states. The confederate only had nine million and an additional three point five million slaves in their eleven confederate states. The union was one of the largest in the industrial
On July 1st - 3rd of 1863 approximately 160,000 men were involved in the largest battle of the Civil War and the largest battle ever fought in North America in a small town in Pennsylvania, Gettysburg. Of the 160,000 men the 85,000 northerners outnumbered the 75,000 strong southerners. The battle is considered the most important engagement of the American Civil War and a turning point in favor of the north. After the fighting had ended, the Union in total had 23,049 casualties and the Confederacy had 28,063, a great Union victory. The Confederate Army of Northern Virginia, under the command of Gen. Robert E. Lee, invaded the north for the second time where they laid assault after assault against the Union’s line.
Barbarossa, the Holy Roman Emperor raised 100,000 knights and infantry by himself, Philip II gathered 2,000 troops and from Richard I 6,000 .The fact that these monarchs individually raised such extensive numbers supports Tyerman’s observation that it was indeed the “leadership of monarchs” that strengthened the crusading forces. However, there were monarchs in the previous Crusades who succeeded in creating vast forces, this illustrates that this could be down to the evolution of crusading that encouraged more people to take up the cross, rather than fall of Jerusalem being a ‘turning point’. Furthermore, leadership continued to develop after the fall of Jerusalem signifying that Jerusalem itself was not a key turning point to the nature of crusading. This can be shown with the Fourth Crusade which had appointed a leader before they got to the Holy Land, this is different when comparing Raymond and Bohemund who arrived at the Levant who then assumed control, this is further illustrated with Richard in the Third Crusade. This eradicated the threat of a lack of control over the Crusaders and added to the competence of the
On May 5, 1862, the Mexican army engaged battle with the French in the Battle of Puebla. This was an incredible feat, considering the differences between the armies. Back then, the French army was considered one of the strongest in the world. In the Battle of Puebla, there were about 2,000 Mexican soldiers and 6,500 French soldiers. The French soldiers were far better equipped, too.
I will give reasons why I think they aren 't the most effective ruler and why Alexander the great is, in my opinion. Alexander is more effective than Qin and Augustus/Octavian. Alexander the Great is the most effective Leader. According to the people from History, in 15 years of conquest Alexander never lost a battle and he named more than 70 cities after himself and one after his horse. First of all, that shows that Alexander has been in power for 15 or more years and in those years he never lost a battle.
Some soldiers say that it was the greatest armored conflict of the entire war. Our Panzer III and Tiger tankers rivaled Soviet T-34 tanks. The Red Army had double our numbers in men and tanks. I will never forget the day
The Aztec people are one of the largest and most superior Indian nations to have ever existed on earth. almost every part of the Aztec life was proceed to such a state that at that time in the world the Aztec people were living better lives than many of the European nations. The Aztec nation is like nothing else in the world in its history, process of people making, selling, and buying things, surrounding conditions, and way of life than any other nation at that time. The Aztec city restricted about 15 million people who lived in approximately 500 towns and cities across what we know today as new day Mexico. Its main capital city, Tenochtitlan, was built in the Valley of Mexico, on islands in Lake Texcoco, the same place where Mexico City,
All of this was paid for with taxes. Indeed, support of the military was the single greatest expenditure of the Roman state. The payment of taxes, however, was the extent to which most Roman citizens contributed or (if they were lucky) interacted with the military. The cultural and social divide between soldier and civilian that had begun even before Augustus’ professionalization of military service had grown wider over the centuries. In the fourth and early fifth centuries ordinary citizens of the great metropolitan centers of the Empire—Rome, Alexandria, Constantinople—and
A left tackle in the 1970’s was earning nearly $100,000 a year. “By 2004, the five most highly paid NFL left tackles were earning nearly $3 million a year more than five most highly paid right tackles...”. (Lewis 32). Michael Oher is the perfect example of a new generation left tackle. His story was so devastating but inspiring, that it had to be told the right way.
The time period between 1861-1865 is called one of the bloodiest times of American history. Approximately 620,000 men lost their lives during those four years, which was around 2% of the population of The United States at the time. The Civil War didn’t start as a war over slavery, but eventually progressed into one that would decide the future of four million people: the slaves living in the United States at the time. The stories told about the Civil War mostly focus on the men on the front, people in the North who supported President Lincoln, and slaves who were freed after the Emancipation Proclamation and the events that followed the Civil War. The story of Gone With The Wind, written as a book by Margaret Mitchell, and produced into film by David Selznick, is all about the women, the people who stayed home, the people on the losing side of the war.
Robert E. Lee is the most prominent Confederate general in the civil war history of the United States. Scholars are divided about the brilliance of Robert E. Lee as a military leader because he has a mixed legacy of success and failure. He is a controversial figure because suffered earth shuttering losses and he also won inspirational victories (Arnold 6). General Robert Edward Lee displayed military leadership in the American Civil war because he mastered the art of pitch battles (Carmichael 50). Historically, his greatest asset was his reputation because it provided him with respect and the loyalty of Confederate soldiers.
In total they lost over forty-four thousand men in just one battle. Another reason was all the hand-to-hand combat. They did a lot more hand-to-hand combat than any other battle in the whole Civil War. Both the South and the North kept sending in troops for reinforcements. The Battle of Gettysburg is the bloodiest battle in the Civil
Colin received 49% of the vote, falling by a few thousand votes. Colin received the highest percentage and highest vote total for a Republican challenger in Delaware in almost a quarter century. (He even received 24,000 more votes than the winning candidate in 2014). Impressive results especially considering the difficult context of the Republican “top of the ticket” in Delaware in 2010 (Delaware was the only State which elected new Democrat US Senate and Democrat Congressional candidates in 2010). Colin out-performed the Republican ticket dramatically and energized the electorate up and down Delaware with his dynamic grass-roots
