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. The North has been known for having a larger amount of soldiers then the south (Confederates). So far this has been the most bloodiest most terrifying battle of all because yesterday was the most Americans that have died in two battles combined. We will always and forever remember this day as the worst day in the history. Although almost a year part these two battles are both equally bad and very devastating to people all around the world and family and friends.
This is likely the reason why our bullet mould ended up there. Soldiers used the bullet mould whenever they went to war. The bullet mould and it’s gun revolutionized warfare. English developed longbows which massacred from a distance, and then guns were invented which eliminated any point in bringing swordsmen into a battle because they would be slaughtered. The bullet mould and gun certainly didn’t change warfare in a year; rather several centuries.
Ulysses S. Grant, The commander in chief had a unique way of fight wars. His way was to relentlessly chance his opponent. Although this way of fighting coasted many deaths to his own army it also caused many more for General Robert E. Lee. Because of these great loses of men it brought Lee to do something that he would rather “die a thousand deaths” than do. This was to surrender to Grant.
The Cold War lasted from 1947 to 1991 and was the outcome of political tension left over by World War Two (WWII). The war officially ended in 1991 with the collapse of communism, but the past forty-four years had brought major technological advances. These advances were made through the Arms Race and Space Race, which were both part of the United States and Union of Soviet Socialist Republics’ (USSR) intense rivalry. The steps that both countries took would be revered worldwide, and although they do not get a lot of attention, are important historical events. While historians have mixed opinions on the impact of the Space Race and Arms Race on the Cold War, it is undeniable that their legacy still impacts modern life.
“War is hell”, said General William Sherman, where young men have to kill others in order to survive. War is a concept known throughout the ages, transitioning from sword fighting in the Iliad, to modern warfare in Iraq. War is destroyer of normalcy, ruining families and cities. Kevin Power’s main character in The Yellow Birds, Private Bartle, would certainly agree with the sentiment, having experienced the war in Iraq. However, Hector from the Iliad would argue that war offered a way for someone to forge their legacy.
This tradition is gruesome and made me uncomfortable that this could be normal to anyone, fictional or real. These people were killed with stones. The author said, "Bobby Martin had already stuffed his pockets full of stones..." (291). This quote really gave the element of death to the story. Bobby Martin and the rest of the characters in this book saw this, gathering stones and having a normal person be stoned to death, as a normal tradition.
Later on, Charley and his battalion, led by Lieutenant Thomas, decided to head to Somme where the bulk of the chaos takes place in the comic. During the battle, Charley went out of his way to save a soldier who was struck by a sniper fire. The sniper decided to take aim on Charley himself, but the bold Sergeant Tozer tries his best to save Charley from the crossfire. Charley managed to find cover, but the soldier that he previously saved was mortally wounded and later died. This angered the young protagonist and he swore that he will avenge his death by killing the German who shot him.
The struggles the narrator experiences were all attempts of putting the narrator the misery and eventually executing him. This theme is seen commonly in twentieth century wars such as World War I, World War II, and the Vietnam War. It was common for an army to capture, torture and kill soldiers from the opposing army. Occasionally, they would do this to gain knowledge of their enemies and other times they would do this as punishment for crimes like in “The Pit and the Pendulum”. The story the portrays the theme of the doom of man through the torture and torment of the narrator which foreshadows the popular act performed during wars in the twentieth
It shows how horrific the war might was because of how the young soldier died. The war destroys his life, so it destroys everyone 's lives.

War has been a problem since human was created on this planet. War is a part of history and it is still going on. World War I and II, Cold War, Civil War in Somalia, Afghanistan, many wars has happen and still going on. And all the war expect cold war involves death.
If it weren 't for the battle of Ezra, the Confederates would still have plenty of supply lines to prepare for a variety of attacks. When the Confederates got word that the Union was attacking the left, they found that they needed reinforcements. Two groups of men had to back away to prepare for a future attack. This is where strategy comes into play, if they lost the battle, then they can cause all of their men to die and the war might end with just that one move.
Also they bombed cities because of factories; you can destroy a factory and rebuild it but when you have no one to rebuild it its shut down for good. The allies wanted to causes issues behind the front lines. They wanted to reduce the number of possible troops for the Germans. They also wanted to kill the family members of the soldiers fighting on the front lines because, if the soldiers weren’t thinking right they couldn’t fight right. Mass bombings of civilians were later outlawed because they were inhumane. The United States recently used this tactic only it was called shock and awe
“I thought the Vietnam war was an utter, unmitigated disaster, so it was very hard for me to say anything good about it” - George McGovern. There are numerous controversial topics dispersed among the subject of American history due to the amount of unethical decisions that have been made in order to improve the lives of the people or keep America out of the clutches of war. Throughout American history, historians have debated the ethical impact that the Vietnam war had on the United States. Although some people may believe that the Vietnam War achieved the goal of avoiding communism and protecting the people, the overarching idea is that it was an unjust war because of the countless lives that were lost from the participating countries, the
The Arms Race was one of the greatests events that happened in history, it also shaped history as it is today. I will take you through the Arms Race and what happened.

The Manhattan Project was a great moment in U.S. history. It demonstrates how history is always changing and adapting. In addition to this, it also shows how multi sided and important history can be. In my opinion, the Manhattan Project exemplifies all of these traits, even though the project occurred years ago. Today I will be supporting all three of the points I have listed above with concrete evidence.
