  • Essay By Richard Current
    866 words
    Since the end of the American Civil War, historians have theorized and argued why the Confederacy did not become victorious, or maybe why the Union did. Three such examples are the essays of Richard N. Current, David Donald and James McPherson.

  • Terrible Side Of War
    506 words
    Tejas Dalal 10/25/95 Critique of Nevins Thesis Nevins thesis about the portrayal of the glorious and terrible sides of the Civil War is excellent.

By using quotes from literary sources, statistics, and des...

    401 words

I would cut this statement completely out of the list and replace it by stating that a war can only be declared if national security is being threatened or that a race or population is being annihilated. Moving on, I...

    April 7th, 1943 Dear Editor, Well done to your last informative and detailed article about the role of women during the World War 2 period. I am happily writing to you that you had wrote some points in the article that are misleading and should be corrected. I say this because I had just returned from a bloody, terrible and painful war and as I am a woman myself, I feel that I should correct some points as the role of women during World War 2 at war and role of women outside war. Also I would li...
