Pershing described the American forces at San Juan as being made up of men "of North and South." Why did he choose this way of describing the military?
In the 1860s, what was going on in the US regarding the military??
the spanish american war
The Civil War in the US preceded that, and animosities were still high, no doubt. Why do you think he would feel the need to emphasize North AND South?
huh? im only in the 8th grade can you make that answer easier to comprehend please :)
