2Civil War PaperWhen they say that to understand this nation we have to understand the Civil War, I think what Shelby Foote was talking about looking at who we are. Even though we had the North and the South with different opinions they were still fighting for what they thought the right thing was to do. When we look at our nation today we see those things that were so huge back then andhow they have come so far today. Things like slavery for instance our forefathers before us couldnever have imagined that there could not be slavery. Which the South fought for it and the North was very against it. There were many other topics that we fought over in our nation’s history and like it or not they really were for the same reason. I think the North and the South wanted the same things they just wanted to be the one that said they came up with the right answer. We are still acting that way today.
