lindsay m's insight:

This song represents the nervous feelings of soldiers before battle, they did not know if they would cower in fear of rise to the occasion of battle, all soldiers need reassurance, a confidence booster, at one time or another. Their thoughts of death and injury are also described in this song.  This song embodies the terrified feelings of death, injury, killing, and being ready for battle that most soldiers in the civil war faced.

Kentucky Civil War: African Americans: slavery and freedom

kentucky civil war: african americans, slavery and freedom
lindsay m's insight:

African americans during the civil war faced terrible hardships, and most were the separation of their families.  Lewis Clarke was separated from himself form his family in 1841 so that he would not be sold away from his family.  Although he got away safely, he still was without all of his family, in some cases of families being separated, the mothers would kill their children to avoid being separated. Although the slaves provided good work to the white people, they lived hard lives filled with sadness.

Cedar Creek - The Confederate Assault

Cedar Creek - The Confederate Assault | civil war | Scoop.it
The Civil War Trust's downloadable map of the Confederate Army of the Valley's assault on the early morning of October 19, 1864. This attack marked the opening phase of the Battle of Cedar Creek, the climactic battle of the 1864 Shenandoah Valley Campaign.
lindsay m's insight:

The confederate assault on Cedar Creek was another surprise attack that greatly impacted the union. In the beginning of the battle, the union soldiers were struggling to uphold their corps, but they ended up drawing the confederates out of Cedar Creek by launching a counterattack. This battle was a reassuring sign that not matter how difficult the battle may be in the beginning, you have to fight until the end.

Life as a Confederate Soldier - Letters of Eli Landers | GACivilWar.org | civil war | Scoop.it
Eli Pinson Landers was nineteen years old when he left his home in Gwinnett County, GA to join the Confederate Army in August of 1861.
lindsay m's insight:

All soldiers of the civil war faced the sad truth that not all of them would survive the war. Even so, men eagerly went to join the war and fight. Each day they faced terrible injuries and the scarring images of  a field full of corpses.  Eli Pinson Landers, like most soldiers, was excited to join the war; however, as the war raged on he realized the terrible weather and food conditions he had to live with.

The Diary of a Union Soldier (1862)

lindsay m's insight:

The union soldiers in the civil war provided hope for many people, even the african americans. The kind spirits and good will the soldiers had, especially through their faith, made them a stronger body of people.  All of the hard work of the soldiers and knowledge of possible death made them heroes that have changed the lives of all americans for the greater good.

Battle of Shiloh Map - April 6, 1862 10am to Noon | civil war | Scoop.it
Civil War Trust Battle Map showing the Battle of Shiloh on April 6, 1862, from 10:00am to Noon.
lindsay m's insight:

The battle of Shiloh was the "Bloodiest Battle of its Time," the union soldiers were caught by surprise when some confederates emerged from the trees and attacked them.  They fought for two days, but the union outnumbered them. They had over 10,000 more soldiers; therefore, the confederates withdrew, leaving behind 23,000 casualties.  The battle of Shiloh gave hope to the union that even though they were surprised in attack, they still won because they were well trained and outnumbered the confederates.

U.S. Civil War Effects on People: Women and Children at Home

U.S. Civil War Effects on People: Women and Children at Home | civil war | Scoop.it
kentucky civil war: effects on people: women and children at home
lindsay m's insight:

(Look at the second story about Nancy Dowis)

During the war many women had to face the distress of sending their sons into battle. Although the there was the threat of death almost all boys of the right age felt it was their duty to join the war.  Nancy Dowis lost a son when he accidentally shot himself, and had another one join the war later.  Her mother was suffering palsy, and she also lost her husband.  Her story is a good example of the hard lives that women had to live, and how lots of them had to run households because of sickness and death.
