Abraham Lincoln addressed in the speech about the inequalities and injustice presented by whites over the minorities. Country can never achieve development in true manner until it makes contributions towards the minorities living in the country. Resources when not distributed equally then situations like southerners are observed that provokes people and they come up with a revolution. Contributions of many people especially southerners was commendable as they chose not to remain neutral (Scruggs, 22). These contributions were commendable as most of people in the revolution were fighting against a mindset that was present at that time. Indians served as strategists during the war and gave military assistance during the war. All of these groups felt the need of an independent America that was better after the Civil war. This revolution was about the idea of fairness and justice to most groups present in the country. People who participated in the revolution were not only soldiers or military people but other people like writers and poets also contributed in the revolution by using their pen as a symbol of peace and prosperity. Contribution of women can be highlighted because without their contributions in the war it world have impossible for the soldiers to serve in the military and at the same time cook and do other chores that are important.
Importance of women in home or in war is important and this could be viewed by the contributions given by women. Africans gave the major contribution because most of them were giving voluntary services in the war and most of them were slaves and prisoners. They felt the need of a country where justice and equality would be present (Scruggs, 89).They felt the need that change is necessary and important and only we can change our situation. United we stand can be stated after looking at the contributions of minorities in civil war. Today the situation is reversed and people have easily forgotten the contributions of these individuals. It is high time that Americans unite and fight for the cause of terrorism and other issues that are present. It is important that all of the communities and minorities in the country unite against discrimination and inequality.
