  18. HOW DID THE CIVIL WAR AFFECT AMERICAS FUTURE • In one way the civil war affected America is that it did away with slavery. My personal look on things is that the civil war shouldn’t have happened. Because the government should have offered to buy the slaves, or something like that. I think that the civil war was a great learning experience for America, I just wish that so many men didn’t have to give there lives for use to learn. Present day Gettysburg. http://www.mountain-fall-foliage-vacations.com/image-files/pennsylvania-gettysburg-battlefield-fall-foliage-625w-t-pa03-0624.jpg

  19. END OF THE CIVIL WAR • After General E Lee’s surrender there were several minor battles. In the end the confederates were not charged with treason, all they had to do was turn over there major artillery. To me in the endthings worked out pretty sweet for the confederates. http://cache.daylife.com/imageserve/0dzX3ZadZVd7Y/610x.jpg

  20. THE CIVIL WARS AFFECTS ON AMERICA • To me and many other Americans the biggest difference is that by the confederates loosing the civil war it did away with slavery. Also it made the government have more power.
