    Correct Answer
    B. The South's greatest strength was it's military leadership.
    Explanation
    During the Civil War, both the North and the South were aware that the conflict would be protracted. However, the South had a significant advantage in terms of military leadership. The Southern generals, such as Robert E. Lee and Stonewall Jackson, were highly skilled and experienced. They had a deep understanding of military strategy and tactics, which gave the South an edge in battle. In contrast, the North struggled to find capable leaders early in the war, leading to initial setbacks. Therefore, the South's strongest asset was its military leadership, which they believed would ultimately lead them to victory.

    • A.

      All slaves to be forever free.

    • B.

      Slaves in the Union slave states to be free.

    • D.

      Slaves in the U.S. territories to be free.

    Correct Answer
    C. Slaves in the Confederate states to be free.
    Explanation
    The correct answer is that the Emancipation Proclamation declared slaves in the Confederate states to be free. This is because the Emancipation Proclamation was issued by President Abraham Lincoln during the American Civil War in 1862, and it stated that all slaves in Confederate territory would be considered free. This proclamation did not immediately free all slaves in the United States, but it was a significant step towards the abolition of slavery and it paved the way for the eventual passage of the 13th Amendment to the Constitution, which officially abolished slavery in the United States.

    Correct Answer
    D. Lee lost so many troops that he would never again invade the North.
    Explanation
    The correct answer is that Lee lost so many troops that he would never again invade the North. This is because the Battle of Gettysburg was a major turning point in the American Civil War, where the Confederate Army, led by General Robert E. Lee, suffered significant losses. The defeat at Gettysburg crippled the Confederate Army and forced them to retreat back to the South, ending any hopes of a successful invasion of the North.

    Explanation
    The fall of Vicksburg was significant because it allowed Union forces to gain control of the Mississippi River. This was a major strategic victory for the Union as it effectively split the Confederacy in half and cut off important supply lines for the Confederate army. By gaining control of the Mississippi River, the Union was able to control the movement of goods and troops, ultimately weakening the Confederate war effort.

    • B.

      An example of total war.

    • D.

      A turning point in the war.

    Correct Answer
    B. An example of total war.
    Explanation
    General Tecumseh Sherman's march through Georgia was an example of total war. Total war refers to a military strategy in which all resources and civilians are targeted, not just enemy soldiers. Sherman's march was characterized by the destruction of infrastructure, confiscation of supplies, and displacement of civilians. This strategy aimed to break the morale and will of the Confederate forces by targeting their sources of support and demoralizing the civilian population. It was a significant departure from traditional warfare and had a profound impact on the outcome of the war.

By offering terms that would not incite further suffering or hatred, General Grant may have hoped to foster reconciliation and unity between the North and the South.

    Lewis Douglass, one of Frederick Douglass’s two sons in the 54th Massachusetts Infantry, wrote this letter to his fiancée:  My Dear Amelia:  I have been in two fights, and am unhurt. I am about to go in another I believe to-  night. Our men fought well on both occasions. The last was desperate—we charged  that terrible battery on Morris Island known as Fort Wagner…Should I fall in the next  fight killed or wounded I hope to fall with my face to the foe….  This regiment has established its reputation as a fighting regiment, not a man  flinched, though it was a trying time. Men fell all around me. Ashell would explode and clear a space of twenty feet. Our men would close up again, but it was no use—  we had to retreat, which was a very hazardous undertaking. How I got out of the fight  alive I cannot tell, but I am here. My Dear girl I hope again to see you. I must bid  you farewell should I be killed. Remember I die in a good cause. I wish we had a  hundred thousand colored troops—we would put an end to this war. Good Bye to all.  Your own loving Lewis

      This letter was written during the battle of Atietam.

    • B.

      The word battery is used in this passage to mean a set of guns or other heavy artillery.

    • C.

      Douglass hoped for if he died in battle to die attacking, not retreating.

    • D.

      Douglass saw men proving they could fight as the most important result of his regiment's first two fights.

    • E.

    Correct Answer(s)
    B. The word battery is used in this passage to mean a set of guns or other heavy artillery.
    C. Douglass hoped for if he died in battle to die attacking, not retreating.
    D. Douglass saw men proving they could fight as the most important result of his regiment's first two fights.
    Explanation
    The passage states that the word "battery" is used to refer to a set of guns or other heavy artillery. This is evident from the sentence "we charged that terrible battery on Morris Island known as Fort Wagner." Additionally, Douglass expresses his hope to die with his face to the foe if he were to fall in battle, indicating his desire to die attacking rather than retreating. Furthermore, he mentions that the regiment's reputation as a fighting regiment was established, with no man flinching during the trying times. This suggests that Douglass saw men proving their ability to fight as the most important result of their first two fights.
