Movie’s and Violence The “Gone with the Wind” movie was made in 1939 as a forensic evaluation of the largest ever American Civil War, capturing the start of the war in 1861 and ending 1865.1 “The American Civil War only having a handful, prior and after, smaller civil wars or general interstate resolutions; that gave similar or no anguish to the American hearts within 1861 to 1865 and their 34 to 36 states of USA such as possibly: (1-The Toledo War 1830 [Michigan v. Ohio], 2-The Walton War 1787 [North Carolina v. Georgia], 3-The Red River Bridge War 1920 [Texas v. Oklahoma], 4-The Utah War 1850 [The United States v. Utah] and 5-The Honey War 1800 [Iowa v. Missouri] [...85...449...].”4 The movie’s primary romance theme was narrated with the American civil war as nostalgia, producing secondary strong jarring interactions within the plot for the audience. The movie substantiated grand and noble romance flirting with love affairs; where the ladies are strictly beautiful shining stars (twenty four seven 24/7 from birth till death). The movie with its romance produced lots of serious genuine male competition for these beautiful ladies to be their bride.1 “The American civil war made up of seven states (including this movies home state Georgia) expanding to eleven states in the south (all called the Confederates were: South Carolina, Mississippi, Florida, Alabama, Georgia, Louisiana, and Texas plus Arkansas, Tennessee, North Carolina and Virginia) for representing slavery, led by their pretend president (Jefferson Davis). The Confederates refuting, rebutting and counter arguing the other 23 states of the north (all called the Union were; California, Connecticut, Delaware, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Kentucky, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, Ohio, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Vermont and Wisconsin) for representing liberty, led by the legitimate and first president ever in their American history (Abraham Lincoln) [...118...449...].”6 The romance in the movie was always fluctuating till the very end with the; leading role of the most beautiful lady being Scarlett O'Hara played by Vivien Leigh and the leading roles of the two most beautiful gentlemen being Rhett Butler played by Clark Gable and Ashley Wilkes played by Leslie Howard.1 “The American civil war also had many nick names; (War to Preserve the Union by the Northerners), (War of the Southern Rebellion), (War Between the States or War of Northern Aggression) also the “War to Make Men Free”, “the Late Unpleasantness”, “Mr. Lincoln’s War” and “Mr. Davis’s War”. The Troop Strength and Casualties between April 1861 and April 1865, an estimated 1.5 million troops joined the war on the side of the Union and approximately 1.2 million went into Confederate service. An estimated total of 600,000 were killed in action or died of disease. More than twice that number was wounded in-conjunction with an untold number of civilians who perished, primarily from disease as entire towns became hospitals [...119...449...].”6 Scarlett O’Hara lives in Tara at her family's cotton plantation in Georgia with her parents and two sisters. Scarlett learns that Ashley Wilkes whom she secretly loves, is to be married to his cousin Melanie Hamilton with the engagement to be announced the next day at a barbecue at Ashley's home, the nearby plantation Twelve Oaks. The barbecue is disrupted by the declaration of war and the men rush to enlist, as Scarlett watches Ashley kiss Melanie goodbye from the upstairs window. Melanie's shy younger brother Charles approaches Scarlett and asks for her hand in marriage before he goes. Though she does not love him, Scarlett consents, and they are married before he leaves to fight. Scarlett is quickly widowed when Charles dies from a bout of pneumonia and measles while serving in the Confederate Army.1 “The American Civil War ending with President Lincoln assassinated on the night of April 14;…
emphasizes a reasoned “analysis of issues rather than personalities.” His poetic gifts as a writer, shaped by a lifetime of avid reading, are matched by a lawyer’s appreciation of precision; his writings project “a persona of dignified but amiable authenticity,” and do so with a “concision of phrasing and logical tightness.” In his run for office he is criticized for being too inexperienced to be president and for failing to support the troops, because he’d questioned an American invasion of a country…
The movie takes place in January 1865, shortly after President Lincoln’s second term in office, when he prognosticated the North victory of the Civil War. The real battle for him now is the fight against slavery. Three commissioners from the Confederacy head up to Washington City, and Lincoln is confident that he could have their surrender within a couple of weeks. But before that can happen, he is driven to pass the 13th Amendment, which would abolish slavery. The Democrats hate the amendment…
detail about their experience through the Civil War was fascinating to me. It made me really think about what I was learning. I really would like to know where they got all the information they presented because they did go into great detail. The woman spinning the wheel with the wool was quite the talker. I loved standing there listening to her talk about different ways that her hobby is unique. You could tell that the woman was very educated on the Civil War topic. Lastly, I enjoyed when the guy gave…
The American Civil war
This is what I think of the battle of Gettysburg is that it was a great turning point of the war and vengeance that the union army took from what had happened at the battle of Fredericksburg the blood, body covered field from that day. The confederate army led by General Robert E. Lee and Longstreet had a plan to completely destroy the union army defensive line.
This may be the greatest turning point of the civil war, these are the steps on how the…
The American Civil War was a major turning point in the history of the United States. The war between the North and South forged the blueprint for what would become the society we live in today. Arguably, slavery may be the biggest cause for civil war between the North and Southern states. But, there were other fairy large contributing factors to the Civil War.
The Missouri Compromise although its subject was slavery forged a larger divide within the states and sparked the beginnings of…
rights to make decisions. This is what the Abraham Lincoln wishes. This movie is set in the American Civil War. It shows how the president Lincoln pushes the Emancipation Proclamation into practice. Although it is tough, the great president lives up to his dream.
At the beginning of the movie, I doubt about the reason why Lincoln wants to liberate the slaves. It seems that it is a political strategy which is used to win the war. However, when I continue to watch the development of the plot, I find…

The Emancipation Proclamation was an executive order issued by President Abraham Lincoln on January 1, 1863, as a war measure during the American Civil War, to all segments of the Executive branch (including the Army and Navy) of the United States. It proclaimed the freedom of slaves in the ten states that were still in rebellion, thus applying to 3.1 million of the 4 million slaves in the U.S. at the time. The Proclamation was based on the president's constitutional authority…
