What Soldiers Fought For: The Complexities of the Civil War
Many people think the Civil war was about slavery and freedom for slaves. While this is certainly true, this does not explain the complexities of the war, or why it was necessary. There are several reasons why soldiers fought, including democratization and freedom for slaves. This article will look at what soldiers fought for, and what they did for the home front. It will also provide some information about Confederate soldiers, who fought for slavery.
Confederate soldiers fought for democratization
Some historians have argued that Confederate soldiers fought for democratization, and others have argued that they fought for the sake of the Anglo Saxon race. The bottom rail was on top of the ladder in the Southern states, and the Anglo Saxon race is a rare strain found in just thirteen Southern States. Regardless of the motives of the soldiers, it's hard to deny that many soldiers were patriotic.
Union soldiers fought for freedom
The Civil War saw nearly 200,000 African American men serve in the Union army and navy. Their contributions made the war a true struggle for freedom. Freedom by the Sword tells the story of these black Union soldiers. It includes an interpretive essay, an image portfolio, fifty documents, and suggestions for further reading. It also examines the lives of African American soldiers during the war. In addition, it offers an insightful look into the culture and social history of the time.
Confederate soldiers fought for slavery
A lot of people wonder whether Confederate soldiers fought for slavery or not. In fact, the Conscription Act of 1863 required all males to serve in the military, including slaves. During the Civil War, most Confederate soldiers served their three-year terms in the military and only knew what they were told. Moreover, they were not aware of the true motives behind their actions. However, they still fought for their country, faith, family, and freedom. And they fought in the Confederate Army for nearly three years.
Soldiers fought for home front
The home front effort during the Second World War was far more organized than the home front during the First World War. The government established the Wartime Prices and Trade Board in 1939, which implemented sweeping Wage and Price Controls to reduce costs and stabilize incomes. The board's decisions were controversial, but they were ultimately seen as a fair and efficient use of the nation's labour. The home front effort is often credited with helping to empower American soldiers, who were able to fight for the cause and leave their enemy dumbfounded.
Soldiers fought for each other
Soldiers fought for each other during the actual fighting, but it was their brothers who gave the ultimate sacrifice. The escapades they endured were fueled by abstract notions of patriotism and duty, but the world has moved on. In an increasingly global community, soldiers are fighting for the rights of their fellow citizens and the rights of their country. If this is true, then the global village isn't the right place for our troops.
