Prompt
In a discussion post of 1-2 paragraphs, reflect on the information in the video. Share how you think it might have impacted Americans (on a personal level) to reckon with the death experienced in the Civil War. This should involve a sense of how it might have hit different people in unique ways (i.e. a southern mother, an Irish immigrant, a veteran, etc.). Feel free to be creative here and offer your own reflection on the information in the video: what stood out? What did it make you think of? How do you feel that this history impacts our lives today?
