How the Civil War Changed Your Life
AARP ^ | April 12, 2011 | Betsy Towner

Posted on 04/27/2013 3:45:10 AM PDT by daniel1212

8 things to think about as we mark the conflict's 150th anniversary.

Some ring strong: of course the end of slavery, perhaps the worst disgrace in the nation's history. And the 620,000 ancestors lost. Other vestiges have weakened with the passage of time but are no less legacies of the four horrific, heroic years that shaped us as one nation.

Here are eight ways the Civil War indelibly changed us and how we live:

1. We have ambulances and hospitals.

The Civil War began during medieval medicine's last gasp and ended at the dawn of modern medicine. Each side entered the war with puny squads of physicians trained by textbook, if at all. Four years later, legions of field-tested doctors, well-versed in anatomy, anesthesia and surgical practice, were poised to make great medical leaps.

The nation's first ambulance corps, organized to rush wounded soldiers to battlefront hospitals and using wagons developed and deployed for that purpose, was created during the Civil War. The idea was to collect wounded soldiers from the field, take them to a dressing station and then transport them to the field hospital.

Doctors laid out the hospitals as camps divided into well-defined wards for specific activities such as surgery and convalescence. Women flocked to serve these hospitals as nurses.

Before the war, most people received health care at home. After the war, hospitals adapted from the battlefront model cropped up all over the country. The ambulance and nurses' corps became fixtures, with the Civil War's most famous nurse, Clara Barton, going on to establish the American Red Cross. Today's modern hospital is a direct descendant of these first medical centers.

I was interested in the content but dubious of the web source and it turns out I was right. It’s a scam for page views with the article being broken up across 8 web pages just chock full of ads of every stripe. Glad I keep tossing those AARP mailers in the trash...

#8 We’re all Americans. I disagree. The government goes to enormous lengths to make certain immigrants don’t lose their ethnicity. They teach them in their own language. I spoke with a man born in California to El Salvdoran parents. He spent his first 16 years in California public school. He said, “I quit. I hardly spoke a word of English. I was taught English by a Cuban worker. They were holding me down.”

Before 1861, the United States were loosely tied entities and always described as a plural noun, as in, "The United States are in trade with France."

This is commonly believed but actually not true.

The United States was used as both a singular and plural noun almost from the beginning, with a gradual shift from singular to plural in frequency.

The biggest jump in the shift came during and after the War of 1812, with another during the Civil War. The process was pretty much complete by 1900.

I grew up in Appomattox, VA - about 3 miles from the National Park. Our house and my father’s Texaco were on the road to Richmond (now US-24), so we dug up lots of minnie balls, pieces of uniform with buttons, 3 cannon shells (sombody with a metal detector found them in a field next to the Texaco), and a bayonet (my brother hung his rake on this one in our front yard). Next to the surrender grounds is the home of Joe Sweeney (5-string banjo).

you are correct. When all government and most businesses say press 1 for English, 2 for Spanish, they completely remove any incentive to immerse in the American culture. Same goes for written information and documents from the government and business.

Go to France and see if they have have the same system. I guarantee they won’t for English but might for Arabic.

Very poorly written. The end of slavery was not a disgrace, it was a triumph.

It is also odd to assign disgrace for the temporary continuation of a universal practice, rather than kudos for the nation (or part of it) being willing to pay the enormous price to end it.

The United States of America didn't invent slavery, nor did we introduce it to the shores of America.

When the Nation was founded and the Constitution written, the founders had to deal with the reality that half of the Country used slave labor and would have fought with England if they couldn't continue to do so.

There would have been no United States of America because much of the money and military talent came from Virginia...a slave state.

Slavery was only legal in the USA for 78 years, not the 400 years that all the race pimps whine about, before the American revolution, this was a British Nation.

Why aren't the black race baiters pissed at England and happy with the USA for ending slavery?

Well stated.

“perhaps the worst disgrace in the nation’s history.”

I too took issue with that particular statement, as well as a couple of others:

1. As the name of their party suggests, these activists believed that the republic’s interests should take precedence over the states’

2. Before the Civil War, the concept of liberty and justice for all meant little unless you were white and male.

Both of the above statements, show a bit of bias all neatly wrapped in the history package, much of which might sound good but is revionist to a degree.

I used to work with a woman from Puerto Rico. I knew her husband was a teacher in a local school. When I met him I was shocked to see that he could barely speak English.

Buts strictly speaking he didn’t need to. The school system had a huge Spanish speaking population that he was serving, and his wife took care of the English needs.

Strange world.

What I don’t understand is how people today can talk about slavery with anything but disdain.

If it were legal for a single day it would be a disgrace.

And it doesn’t matter whether it was common or not. They buying and selling of people is just wrong.

The buying and selling of people is wrong today although it continues in some parts of the world such as parts of africa and asia

People willingly sold themselves into slavery at many times in many cultures. Greek teachers sold themselves to Roman masters to teach children for example.

Thomas Sowell’s Culture Series of three books takes a definitive look at slavery. Good to have a world wide persective rather than a limited leftist US perspective.

Good morning.

I grew up in Appomattox, VA

How long ago did you leave?

For about 20 yrs (79-99), I would go to Appomattox almost every weekend between the third week in November to the first week in Jan. We hunted Cumberland county. Only decent place to eat was in Appomattox.

Was stationed at Ft. Lee (78-79), and we would run the Petersburg National Battlefield at least twice a week. Find minnie balls, pieces of clothing, parts of canteens, etc. all the time.

The whole area is a history lesson.

I am sure they meant slavery was a disgrace, but was poorly written, while slavery in the South was not that of the regulated Biblical form , which ameliorated an established institution. And the outworking of its Christian ethos supported and enabled it to be dispensed with when spiritual and political conditions enabled.

Christianity is an overcoming faith, one that places the priority on having victorious faith despite circumstances, while as Paul advised, "Art thou called being a servant? care not for it: but if thou mayest be made free, use it rather." (1 Corinthians 7:21) And which liberty he supported in requiring an escaped and converted slaves to be received back as a brother, even as Paul himself. (Philemon)

Note that under the law there was no national debt, and no interest for citizens, with land being given to all and returned after 50 years in case they may have sold it.

Thieves worked to pay for what they stole, and Israelites who went into debt could sell themselves into servitude, but were offered freedom after 6 years, with generous "severance pay." Non Israelites could even own Israelis servants, and sell their own kin into slavery to Israelites, but which was for life and them and for offspring (in a superior nation), unless the owner knocked out a tooth, or likely something similar, while escaped slaves were not to be returned.

Now how would such things as the Madoff investment scandal fit here?

Slavery was a universal but not monolithic institution in the ANE, and one must understand that context of those societies, and not suppose it all fits the image we have of slavery in the antebellum South. See http://www.christian-thinktank.com/qnoslave.html and http://www.astorehouseofknowledge.info/w/Slavery

Working as a servant to pay off debts, or gaining income by selling ones offspring into slavery or having assurance of food and care for life and perpetuation in an age when this was a very changeable situation was a strong attraction. And freedom being given in case of severe injury by an owner (even a tooth lost) and prohibition against returning an escaped slave, as well as equal pay and forbidding threatening as ones that will be judged by God, (Eph. 6:9) worked toward superior treatment than slavery in other places, as God worked toward the ideal seen to a strong degree in in the organic NT church (Acts 2,4,5) in which there was no slavery. See post 31

Meanwhile, the “slavery” that replaced slavery has placed multitudes in bondage to a victim entitlement mentality, with its bitterness, lack of respect, theft, sexual immortality, and drugs and depression, and in which you do not merit or work for what you gain, but gain it by making noise about imagined or exaggerated injustices. Which lying drugs help you to do.

Me, I don’t have any beef with people who work for a living, look after their kids, etc. don’t much care where they’re from if they’re sharing in the same struggles as the rest of us.

Unfortunately a huge population of layabouts dominates several cities here, and they give a bad rap to their brethren who are doing right.

On a separate note, I met Somalis when I was in Chicago. They each, independently of each other, talked about their surprise at being preyed upon when they got here by who they expected to be their African brothers. They all aspired to make their nut in the city and move to the ‘burbs as soon as they old.

Interesting.

Another critique states,

Please remember why this amendment was a necessity to the U.S. Constitution and for what reasons it needed to be clarified from the original writing just shy of 100 years earlier.

Senator Jacob Howard of Ohio was the author of the ‘Citizenship Clause’ and defended the new language against the charge that it would make Indians citizens of the United States. Senator Howard assured skeptics that “Indians born within the limits of the United States, and who maintain their tribal relations, are not, in the sense of this Amendment, born subject to the jurisdiction of the United States.” (As a sidebar: Why would people from Middle or South America be construed as any different?) http://onemorecup.wordpress.com/2011/07/06/revisit-the-fourteenth-amendment-in-content-and-context/

I am not educated enough in all the aspects this relates to and am recovering from sickness, but maybe someone else has a comment.

It is true that not all races, cultures and thus not all immigrants are the same. WW2 made that manifest.

Among those in major influx groups i have known or observed, the Chinese, Greeks, and Cambodians and are among the most industrious, but i suspect the latter may have lost more offspring to the welfare culture.

The Algerian Muslims work and want to get along, and seem to want freedom from fundamental Islam, and i see nothing suspicious, and have many happy friendly (more modestly dressed) children.

The Cape Verdeans also have large families, but like most others, they lose more to cultural immorality.

Among the Latins, most men also seem to work (how many pay taxes i know not), but there is an very high rate of unwed mothers. It almost seems to be a rite of passage to get pregnant and thus get into the extensive fed and state welfare support system, which gets “better” if one of the children is diagnosed as special needs (14% are). It seems this is more prevalent among Puerto Ricans (who play the loudest music even late at night) though i think that may be matched in many black communities. Fathers are sometimes around, but many, perhaps most, are not married, which the gov. has mode economically detrimental. But which gets pols elected who support the system.

Yet i want to help them all, most importantly to turn to Christ from sin and receive and follow Him who died for them and rose again!
