Can someone please help me with this question?
What is at least two experiences about the differences of the Union Home Front and the Confederate Home Front?
What is at least two experiences about the similarities of the Union Home Front and the Confederate Home Front?
I have at least one difference for each but I'm having trouble with finding another difference as well as the similarities.
Here is what I have for the differences between the Union and Confederate Home Front:
The Union Home Front when it came to differences was: more factories, people used factories to produce the products needed for war. Another difference was: primarily anti-slavery.
The Confederate Home Front when it came to differences was: less factories, people mostly home-made the stuff that was needed for war. They produced cotton to trade with European nations for the products that they could not make at home. Also strongly pro slavery.
Another idea would be "where" most of the Civil War was fought. Which side lost more homes, source of income, because of battles being fought in their fields and towns?
