The question

How could the experience and conditions of the militia’s lifestyle impact the way they battled?

Topics

1. Physically

2. Mentally

3. Emotionally

Physically

1. It can physically affect the soldiers because what if the war gave the soldiers lots of pain and would disable them to do certain things. They did not have the same amount of medical attention as today. This makes it a lot harder for the soldiers to live a healthy life and fight their hardest to save their country.

Mentally

2. The war can mentally affect the soldiers as well. Some might be paranoid after seeing things or will be constantly getting scared of what might happen next. Others might get over confident and do things out of the ordinary.

Emotionally

3. It can emotionally impact a soldier because if they witness something sad or gruesome like their best friend or sibling getting shot, that memory will follow them everywhere, especially on the battle field.
