For my US history class, we were split up into two groups: the Union and the Confederacy. Each member of each group was assigned four questions, and will go up against whoever on the other team has the same question and go through a debate on it. I was assigned to three questions, (and I'm on team Confederacy) and a statement to either agree with or disagree with. Here they are: Grant was an American Hero deserving of admiration and respect. Which side had the greater incentive to win the war? Which side held the initial advantage at the start of the war? Was Lincoln and abolitionist? I would like you monkeys to help me out with them. I have some basics covered, but would really like that extra push to do well in this. Extra points for tiny anecdotes and telling statistics that make the Confederacy look like they were sucker punched and the victim. EDIT: I've been trying for about an hour to get this curious george to work but it just won't without the URL filled in, so sorry about the link.
