Transcript: Civil War Literature Background The war began as the result of a dispute between certain southern states and certain northern slates regarding slavery and the taxation of cotton exports. The Civil War made a tremendous impact. Numerous authors have written about the events and background both from a literary and historical perspective. One of the most famous works of literature related to the Civil War is The Red Badge of Courage, by Stephen Crane (which we do not read) What, if anything, did the Civil War accomplish? First of all, America's slaves were immediately set free. Secondly, the cotton farmers of New England were required to pay a twelve percent duty on all exported cotton balls, swabs, and dungarees. Family Life during the Civil War The Civil War split families and friends. Brothers fought brothers on the battlefield. Three brothers of Mrs. Abraham Lincoln died fighting for the South. As men left for war, women had to step in to fill their place. Women took up roles as factory workers, clerks and school teachers. As the number of sick and wounded increased, women also took on the role as nurses. WHAT ARE WE READING?
