2History Review Week 10Read:●Chapter 14 Troubled Times: the Tumultuous 1850s●Chapter 15 through Section 15.1 The Origins and Outbreak of the Civil WarTopic 10 DT 1Both the Union and the Confederacy suspended civil liberties during the conflict. In your opinion, did the stakes of the war justify such measures? Explain your answer.AnswerIn my opinion, the stakes had nothing to justify their actions; the constitution does not change when there is war. Everyone has a right to expression, and therefore the decision of the Union and Confederacy to arrest any person who talked against the war was against the law. People have the right to know what is happening in their country, and therefore, they were not supposed not to allow the media people to write about the war. Civil rights should not be suspended at any time, like arresting people without any mistake; this is like suspending the country's constitution.Topic 10 DT 2What were the military merits of Sherman's "hard war" in Georgia and South Carolina? Do you think the nature of the conflict warrant such a course of action?Answer
3The military was many and organized, and they listened to their commander Sherman, who led them during the war. Sherman is considered a ruthless soldier who led the military to destroy the crops on the fields like the acres of cotton burnt. Some say that Sherman was tired of fightingand wanted to speed the war's ending by making the Union win. I don't think that there is any justification for Sherman's action of burning the houses and crops. The action taken was very severe and cruel, and it affected the people very much; innocent people were caught in between, which was not supposed to happen. Sherman could have involved the military of the opponent.
