Join The Confederate States

By: Colin Sharpe

The Confederacy

I have joined South Carolina, Mississippi, Florida, Alabama, Georgia, Louisiana, Texas, Virginia, Arkansas, North Carolina, and Tennessee in the Confederate Army. There are around 750,000 to 1.2 Million Soldiers fighting for the Confederacy but we are outnumbered by the Union because they have around 2.6 Million Soldiers fighting for their side. 69% of us are farmers and the Union are mostly factory workers.

The Confederate Beliefs

The Confederacy believed to be their own country and they wanted to secede from the United States. They wanted their own states rights and not to be ruled by a different Government, they wanted to control their own Government.

Important Roles in the Civil War

3 Major Battles

The First Win

The Confederates first win was at Battle Of Bull Run. They attacked the Union's Right flank and the Yankees fell back to Washington. This was an inspiration for the Rebels because they thought the Union was weak at Battle but they had no idea what awaited them.

The War's effect on People

The Civil War not only effected Slavery but it effected the people too. The men who fought, came back traumatised but they sometimes came back without an arm, leg, or they didn't come back at all. Soldiers and Scouts came through people's homes or farms and took cows, horses, food, and men. It wasn't only hard for the soldiers, but it was hard for the people too.
