Answer 1:The civil war is considered the modern war because it was the first contemporary war was which was happened after the industrial revolution. This war has the better claim based on the industrialized enlistment, armies etc. After this war, more inventive technology was discovered (Reid, 2014). Besides this, more modern weapons were invented. This war is the main reason for the transformation of the whole country. This war pointed towards the future in multiple ways like the termination of the significance. With this particular war, the prolonged movement interspersed by the series of battle. It leads to the premeditated objective materializes as the prototype of the war which was happened in the twentieth century.

Answer 2:When the U.S. civil war was started medicinal acquaintance was primordial. The doctors of the battlefield were not too much familiar with the infection and diseases. They also did not know about the importance of the surgery. Along with the gunshot wound, the primary killer of the death of the civil war was the severe diseases like pneumonia, diarrhea, malaria, chickenpox etc. The doctors prescribed the quinine or whiskey as the remedy of these kinds of diseases where today’s the doctors give the antibiotics (Humphreys, 2016). The soldiers also often suffer from the poor sanitation and the worst hygiene. The antibiotics were not invented at that time and most of the soldiers died from the chronic diseases and the infection from it. From a general estimation, it can be said that more than 750000 soldiers died in the war and two third of the total dead was caused due to the chronic diseases.

Answer 3:When Amanda was being placed in the hospitals ward the surgeon indicated her and told that she was the one to take the whole responsibility of the ward. The reply to this statement was short and it totally indicated that the presence of women as the nurse was not approved. Basically, in those times, the women were not allowed to take such kind of responsibility. But surprisingly, in the civil war, the women took the responsibility of the ward and the hospital regarding the nursing and the treatment of the people. There were no women in the ward at that time. For this reason, the asymmetric ways of the ward master Jobes were evident on all sides. Overall it can be said that the role of the women is important in the time of civil war including the nurses and surgeons. It brought a great revolution in that time.

Answer 4:In the poem written by Walt Whitman, the poet describes the experience in the civil war. He elaborates the short act of discontinuing inside the hospital and goes more depth than the possible. This poem actually makes me sad. He describes the severe condition in the battle where most of the people died from the chronic diseases and the lack of treatment. Basically, it is a horrendous manifestation which is imagined by the poet himself. He introduces the readers to such a situation where so many soldiers were lost and most of the rest people were trying to be saved from the infection and disease. He illustrates the profligate irregularity of the situation and he represents this condition through the line ‘a sight beyond all the pictures’. In the eighth line of the poem, the poet illustrates a picture of the room where he entered and in this case, he used the word ‘deepest’ twice. It accumulates the sum of what he is actually trying to represent.
