1.What made the American Civil War the first modern war? 2..How was the North's victory over the South tied to the different ways the market revolution had developed in thetwo regions? 3. Describe how President Lincoln's war aims evolved between 1861 and 1863, changing from simply preserving the Union to also ending slavery. At first, Lincoln thought the war would be short so his only goal was to preserve the Union, especially because Northern textile factories relied on Southern cotton. As the war escalated, it became easier for slaves to run away, and they provided vital information of the Confederate Army's position. It was impossible to preserve slavery in areas where fighting had occurred, and Lincoln found emancipation to be a useful political and military strategy. 4.How did the actions of slaves themselves, as well as northern military strategy and the Emancipation Proclamation, combine to end slavery? 5.What role did blacks play in both winning the Civil War and in defining the war's consequences? 6.How did federal policies undertaken during the Civil War transform the United States into a stronger nation-state economically, politically, and ideologically?
