There I was right behind enemy lines, the files were right there. I made a dash for the files, swiftly and quietly. Out the door I sprinted, I desperately looking for an airplane. There one is I said with some relief. Once I started the airplane my cover was blow! I pulled up and barely got off the ground. I The germans started firing at me. I took evasive maneuvers dodging anti aircraft fire. I just barely flew out of their reach and from there, it would be a short flight from germany to france. I could imagine all the praise, thanks, and rewards I would get when I get home. I couldn’t exactly remember why the files are important but it was something about a classified german weapon. When I got home I was immediately arrested for …show more content…
After a day of planning it was night time. We got into the detective's car and drove around the outer parts of the city, since that's where all gothic churches were. It was dark and cold but definitely not stormy. Soon some fog rolled in it felt like we had been driving in circles. I could see how everyone thought the detective was mad he had what felt like split personalities. Of course I couldn’t question that now he was going to save my life but something was off. By the time I was done wondering we found the church. Careful not to make a sound we passed 2 guards on the outside. The church was on the verge of collapsing but yet it still stood, tall and old. As we entered it felt dark and grim like that feeling that something was wrong, like when you wake up from a nightmare and are paranoid from every little detail. Every time I turned a corner it felt like something was going to hop out at me. The wood boards creaked and the wind howeld. Hay haven't we passed this banner before, yah and that was the one we saw earlier too just around the corner. I was going insane, around every corner it was the same thing as the last. Until we finally saw something,.. Daylight! We ran as quickly as we could out until we were finally outside. There the car is we said with relief. Something about that place was weird something mystical like some ghostly being was watching us. We drove for a while and this time it was the real church we were sure of it. It was

The name Civil War is misleading because the war was not a class struggle, but a sectional combat, having its roots in political, economic, social, and psychological elements. It has been characterized, in the words of William H. Seward, as the “irrepressible conflict.” In another judgment the Civil War was viewed as criminally stupid, an unnecessary bloodletting brought on by arrogant extremists and blundering politicians. Both views accept the fact that in 1861 there existed a situation that, rightly or wrongly, had come to be regarded as insoluble by peaceful means.
The little children are freezing to death. My people, some of them, have run away to the hills, and have no blankets, no food. No one knows where they are -- perhaps freezing to death. I want to have time to look for my children, and see how many of them I can find. Maybe I shall find them among the dead. Hear me, my chiefs! I am tired. My heart is sick and sad. From where the sun now stands I will fight no more forever."
In 1850, a document called the Fugitive Slave Act was passed. Primarily, this document dealt with the reclaiming of runaway slaves. This law allowed southerners to call upon the federal government to capture runaway slaves who had fled the South and may be living in the North. The Fugitive Slave Act and the laws that went with it only caused controversy in the North. This split the North and South. In reaction to this, some northern states passed laws forbidding state officials to enforce the Fugitive Slave Law, which only angered the southern states. Northerners had become aware of the hypocrisy of slavery and became resolved to end slavery. Many abolitionists started to take action to help slaves escape. This major controversy over the
The American Civil War In 1860, arguably the world's greatest nation was locked in Civil War. The war divided the country between the North (Union) and South (Confederate). The war lasted five years and by 1865 the Confederate forces were truly beaten. Out of this horrendous war though, where some 600,000 men died grew a greater sense of nationalism than is today, unrivalled around the world.
In the 1850’s the United States was not so United. There had been many internal problems, that were tearing the entire country apart. Issues such as slavery, and power of the states were coming between the country. The south and north had been arguing about the issue of slavery for a very long time. The North was against it. They had set out to abolish it. But the south was growing very rich off it. It was cheap labor. Al the slave owners had to pay for was room and board, which was cheaper then paying salaries. Since the industrial revolution and the invention of things like the Cotton Gin the south had become a large producer of all things cotton.
In 1861, the American Civil War commenced after many years of tension building between the Northern and Southern states. The main reason of the tension was said to be the debate of slavery between the North and South, and although some documents support this claim, it is false. The war had been brewing since 1607, before slavery was even introduced to the colonies that would become the United States of America. The debate of slavery did play a major part in the civil war; however it did so in supporting the true cause of the civil war. The main cause of the American Civil War was not the debate of slavery, but rather Europe’s role in the American economy.
Many developments in social life and the constitution amounted to a revolution between 1860 and 1877. Some of the major events that took place during this time period were the secession of the southern states, Civil War, Thirteenth, Fourteenth, and Fifteenth amendment, and reconstruction.
The American Civil War, which began in 1861 to 1865, has gone down in history as the one of the most significant events to have ever occurred in the United States of America, thus far. At that time, questions had arose wondering how the United States ever got so close to hitting rock bottom, especially being that it was a conflict within the country itself. Hostility steadily grew through the years dividing the nation further and further, and finally leading to the twelfth day in April 1861 in Fort Sumter, North Carolina. The American Civil War was an irrepressible battle and aside from the obvious physical effects of the war, the disagreement over states rights, the act of slavery, and the raising of tariffs played crucial roles in the
The Civil War was an internal conflict between the South and the North in the United States. In 1860, the first shots were fired, and the war would go on for 4 years. There were many events that led up to this war, including the many differences between the North and South. They had differences in their ideas of slavery, tariffs, state rights, and trade. These differences would all contribute to the start of the American Civil War.
At the front gate, there were weeds all over what used to be a garden. The door suddenly swung on its creaky hinges. Pitch black. You couldn’t see a thing in the cabin. Every couple of minutes shingles would fall off the roof. I was scared. Terrified. Then I heard creaking floorboards.
In the Civil War the North had many advantages over the South. The South was outnumbered, out supplied, and pushed into a corner using military tactics. Many things changed because of the Civil War. The military tactics used by the North changed how war was fought from then on. Many changes were made politically; some were only temporary, while others were permanent. After the war was over, the country was reunited and the image of the soul and duty of our country redefined.
During both the civil war and civil war reconstruction time periods, there were many changes going on in the Union. The Emancipation Proclamation, as well as legislation such as the thirteenth, fourteenth and fifteenth amendments, was causing a new awakening of democracy; while the renouncing of secession by the South marked a definite triumph for Nationalism. As well, the government was involved in altercations of its own. During reconstruction, the legislative and executive branches eventually came to blows over the use of power. The nation was being altered by forces which caused, and later repaired, a broken Union.
One of the most difficult times in the history of the United States was the Civil War. The Civil War is often remembered as the war to end slavery. While that did play a part of the Civil War the larger issue at hand was the annihilation of the United States of America. The Confederate States of America wanted to break away from the United States and form their own country.
The War of Succession, universally known as the Civil War, was a war unlike any other. According to the Civil War Trust, “ it was the most immensely colossal and most destructive conflict in the Western world between the cessation of the Napoleonic Wars in 1815 and the onset of World War I in 1914.” It commenced when the Confederate army assailed Fort Sumter on April 12, 1861. The Civil War was a rigorously catastrophic event for both the North and the South. About 360,000 of the Union’s men were killed ( Some passed later on because of their fatal wounds or diseases.), the rest of the casualties were on the Confederate side. That makes 600,000 men killed in this war. It was not easy but, after four years, the war ended on April 9, 1865.
