Military Tactics and Technology Military Tactics, and Technology changed the way of how wars were fought. Instead of marching in crowds, soldiers covered behind walls or hid in trenches. The more accurate rifles replaced the old muskets. The cannon was useful for taking out large crowds of people. Pointed bullets replaced the old big round musket balls.
Combat Conditions Civil war combat was a nightmare of horrors to all the soldiers. Many soldiers were scared of getting shot, and catching diseases around them. A lot of soldiers didnt want to join the army Some joined the war to fight for their country, and loved ones.
Medical Care During the Civil War, medical care was very poor. Some soldiers died cause doctors didnt know how to heal soldiers. The doctors sometimes gave soldiers the wrong kind of medicine, and some even died from the wrong medication. Soldiers got infection from the dirty environment or the doctors never washed their medical tools.
Food and Drink In the Civil War, a lot of soldiers hated the food. They ate pickled meat that was preserved in salt. Union soldiers ate a cracker bread called Hardtack which was filled with worms and weevils. (a type of beetle). The Confederacy ate a boiled root called Chicory..
Conditions On the Home Front On the home front, there was a severe argument on the drafts. For people to escape the drafts, they were able to pay a fine of $300. Draft Rioters broke out, and burned down the drafts office, and killed many innocent African Americans. More than 100 people died in this little act.
From Gettysburg to Appomattox General Grants plan was to attack the South from two sides. General Grant got a lot of his men killed, and some people even called General Grant a butcher. His attempt did successfully work, and the Union won the war. Before the Union won the war, the Confederacy predicted that they would lose the war, and fortunately they were right.
conclusion After the civil war, many bodies lay dead on the battlefield. some were lucky and only survived with minor injuries. some soldiers survived, but were sadly paralyzed. Soldiers that survived were sad to lose friends that fought with them through the whole thing. The civil war was truly a very tragic war.
