He showed his generation and generations of Americans to come the horrors and the true nature of war. By exposing the fears and inner thoughts of Henry Fleming in his new environments, Crane introduced America to the harsh reality that “the blue and the gray honestly don’t ever seem too entirely certain why they’re fighting each other.” These were merely young men killing each other without really understanding the reason.

People during this period lived by similar ethics, and expressed it through a variety of ways, changing their appearances and overall daily life as war progressed and obtaining a different perspective of violence. During the 1960’s, Americans began to see the unfair horrors of war, thus developing a feeling of restlessness toward the government. The Vietnam War (1959-1975) was one of the main contributors to the counterculture. Initially, many thought the war and intervention in Vietnam was necessary, but as it progressed people began to see the inequitable destruction. Due to their change in attitudes regarding the war and violence in general, people held protests and other anti-war movements and took it to further promote peace and love, which lead into other ideas of the counterculture.
There were many reasons for the outbreak of the civil war, a war that fundamentally changed the United States and inspired some of the greatest thinkers to write some inspiring literary works. Many are fascinated by the civil war and want to make sense of what happened. It was a bloody war in which Americans were killing other Americans. The questions and answers brought about during the war would re-shape the American society and provide an answer about the much debated subject of slavery. Each side held a deeply rooted reason for going to war.
Furthermore, wars are necessary once you’ve tried diplomatic solutions and when you are fighting for a moral cause. Madison was justified in changing the United States’ foreign policy from isolationism to intervention because peaceful resolutions have been attempted throughout Adam’s, Jefferson and his presidencies, which have all been unsuccessful, war could solve all of the United State’s problems, and isolationism stopped them from becoming a respected and wealthy nation. The difficult decision Madison made was an important factor in the making of today’s United States: a respected nation willing to stand up for its freedom, and for others.
