Slavery and Its Impact
Slavery has been recently debated heavily. Here are some views. This quote is from an abolitionist.“Slavery should not even be a word. The thing that which it describes should not have been conceived. Yet it was carried out. It its impact is, so big that now that word is used often. The word will not go away. It is in print. Slavery can go away with the help of many. It must be abolished.” This quote is from a southern farmer: “ My crops pay for my food and clothing. My crops pay for more slaves. The slaves pick the cotton of the crops.” The southern farmer is lazy and unwilling to change his ways. The debates of slavery can be heard on every street corner on the abolitionist newspapers and on the mouths of the good. And for the corners which lack this, from their own doings or other means, will not grow. Such evils must be stopped. I think you know the side to choose. It is amazingly obvious. Do not be something that is even close to a fool, let alone being proud to be one. How have such evils managed to be persistent? It is time for slavery to meet its end. The war will make sure of it.

A biography of Stonewall Jackson
Stonewall Jackson was born in 1824. He is famous for civil war battles. His real name is Thomas Jonathan Jackson. He died just months ago. This biography is more about his life before the war. He was a teacher. He had some problems. He suffered from hyporchorida. He would stand often, and put one arm in the air as he taught. He had a sad and hard life. His dad and sister died of typhoid fever when he was 2. His wife died while giving birth, his son was a stillborn. When he later remarried his daughter died when she was less than a month old. They later had another daughter. He was known to not back down during battles. This is why his nickname is Stonewall Jackson. About two years ago at Bull Run Jackson got this nickname. He was standing like a stonewall with his men. At one point he raised his hand and got shot in the finger. He did not have it amputated. He died when he was shot in the arm by friendly fire.
Why is Robert E Lee fighting?
Robert E. Lee who fights for the Confederate army: why is he fighting? Recent reports say that he is opposed to slavery and secession. He must know what the war is about, but what is it about to him? His state? His way of life? His government? These are questions.
Robert E. Lee fought in the American army before. He wanted to fight for his state. This makes me curious because how much does his state really mean to him? I know it meant a lot to him, but why would he take, so many peoples lives, for his state, which is not even doing what he wants it to do? He also fought in the US army a lot before, so he probably is fighting against people he fought along side with. I think that you really got to know what you are fighting for, when you are fighting for it. I guess he likes his state a lot. Because he killed a lot of people for it, and possibly for whatever else he was fighting for, which by my knowledge may or may not be existent. His dear alley Stonewall Jackson died on May 10th this year. Here is some things about his life. Robert E Lee was born in 1807 in Virginia.

Quote from the video.
Our president Abe Lincoln got his picture taken this year.
Will he abolish slavery?
The Copperheads still don’t want to fight this war.
The battle of Bull Run was a very serious battle. Many were killed and many were injured. Sadly a huge amount of soldiers were captured. The prison camps were awful. Many people starved to death and died of the conditions. I had not been reminded of what the phrase “walking skeletons” means for a long time. I did not like being reminded. One older lady who was in her home got shot. She died later that day. Over 400 union soldiers were killed. Over 300 confederate troops were killed. The confederates won the battle, but not morally. They even fought on what the name of the battle should be. The Union forces and confederate forces wanted to name most of the battles different things. If they had a battle over it, what would the battle be called? The people captured faced the worst torture. The starvation and terrible conditions at the prison camps. Because of this I see it as clear that this battle was devastating. I view it as the most significant. Although I will say that I don't know. I was not fighting the battles. I was not observing the battles as they happened like some. My presence on the battlefield against the enemies was not evident. How can I know which battle holds the most significance? I cannot know. The battles ring bells, but the scenes of agony are ones which I have not witnessed. Maybe the battle that seems to hold the least holds the most. The ending battle may appear to be the most important, but perhaps the battles leading up to it are the only reason they reached the point they reached. The Battle of Bull Run was important none the less, and perhaps not the least.
