Hi, I need help with essay on N analysis of any assigned primary source document from the book Major Problems in American History Volume II. Paper must be at least 1250 words. Please, no plagiarized work!
In the eighth stanza, Randolph laments that he cannot take up the musket and fight anymore.1 The word “anymore” illustrates that he probably took part in the recently ended war. The conflict was bitter and quite biased against the North, so he views the Republic and the constitution as mere instruments from the latter region. His biases have thus caused him to speak against critical principles of the US like freedom.
Southerners were regarded as masters by their slaves. not only were they going to lose this status, but they now had to submit to the North. The hatred and bitterness should not come as a surprise as the defeat had adverse consequences. It is these sentiments that informed the writer of the song. He probably detested the fact that he now had to play to demands from the ‘Yankees’. He has a rebellious character in the song because he lost so much. It is for this reason that he does not care for their pardons. he boldly claims that he wishes he could kill some more Northerners, but the law does not allow him.
