The Civil War is at its
most brutal stage and you are a Union General. If you would be
asked to surrender, would you? Would you surrender to save the
lives of your soldiers or would you continue to fight for what
you believe in? You will share your thoughts in a letter you write
to a family member or friend.
Some questions to ask yourself as you write your letter are as follows. Why are you fighting for the North? What are your views on slavery? What kind of warfare do you and your army use? Describe one of your victorious battles. Do you have any regrets with your orders for battle, etc?
|You will need to use lots of adjectives. By reading your letter, family and friends should be able to understand the enormous hardships you encounter as a Union General.|
