Sadra K. TarghiPer.11/08/10Chapter 16 VocabularyMain Idea: In this chapter the author talks about how the Civil war affected the ideas of slavery, how it affected the economy of the south. It also talks about how the union and the confederate soldiers had a huge impact on the outcome of the war, how generals affected the war and how the slaves overall were affected by the Emancipation Proclamation in the 1860s. Rebel-(definition) -Confederate soldier, so called because of opposition to the established government. - (Significance) -Rebels are significant to U.S history because they were the soldiers that were from the confederate states and were the soldiers who were trying to hold their ground because they wanted to stay seceded from the U.S. If it wasn’t for the rebels the Civil War might have never happened or if it did, it wouldn’t have lasted 4 years. This was significant because during the beginning of the war, the U.S was trying to bring back the states to the government itself, but as the war went on, they changed their reason for fighting the war and know wanted to end slavery. So overall, we can conclude that in the 1860s the rebels had ahuge effect on the way the Civil War was going to happen because if they didn’t exist the civil war would have never happened and the U.S wouldn’t become one step closer to ending slavery, so since the rebels existed they kept on fighting the Yankees who were the Union soldier for 4 years which changed the reason of why the U.S was fighting the war from it being to bring the confederate states back into the U.S to ending slavery.-(details)-By the summer of 1861 the confederate army had about 112,000 soldiers, who were called rebels. Yankee-(definition) -Union soldier - (significance) -Yankees are mainly significant to U.S history because they are the soldiers of the U.S themselves also known as the union states. If it wasn’t for them, the confederate states might have won the civil war and the outcome of things
