Analysis of The Birth of a Nation , 1915 The Birth of a Nation is a film from the “silent era” that depicts the lives of two families, the Stonemans from the north, and the Camerons from the south. All was peaceful until the new administration took over and the South threatened to secede from the Union. Once the threat was received, the Civil War broke out and forced the two families to join military forces and rival against one another. Not long after the war had started, each family got news that their youngest sons had been killed. Meanwhile, Elsie Stoneman decides to become a volunteer nurse for the Union army. Little did she know that she would end up taking care of Ben Cameron, her brother’s pal from the Southern Confederacy. Ben is very much in love with a picture of Elsie and is certain that she is the girl of his dreams, and he shows her the picture that he has been carrying for quite a long time.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
