I have another Civil War question. How did the war split families and divide friends? My answer--
It pitted brother against brother, parents against their children, and neighbor against neighbor. For example, John Crittenden had two sons who were generals in the war - one for the Confederacy and one for the Union.

Do you think this is too long or what my teacher might be looking for??

    It's not too long, and I think it's what your teacher expects. Families and friends lived on both sides. It wasn't unusual for brothers and cousins to fight on opposite sides.
