Hiding in basements for what seems forever and hearing to the grenades flying over the house and exploding nearby is one example of the war.A grenade exploding in your friend's bedroom in the middle of the night and blowing him and his sister into thousands of pieces is just one small result of the war.Migrating from a country where you grew up and starting a new life somewhere else is an example of the life after war.Why can't a world realize what war brings, and for that reason why can't we stay out of wars?Most people can define a war, but everybody can't tell why a war takes place.
A war is not a place where one goes on the vacation, nor a place where one goes to have fun.A war is not where one goes to become famous.A war is not where one goes to make money.The war is not a magic word, nor a place where only lucky people get a chance to go.A war is not for educated people only, nor for the adults only.A war means everyone and everything.A war means death.A war also means hatred.It means competition.And a lot of times it means gaining a control of another country.
There has always been a war in the world, but it has not always been a war with force. Hundreds of years ago, wars were fought by words between the groups of people who were feared and dangerous so others would stay away from them.Later, the wars were fought with rocks or wooden objects when some group attacked people or other groups.And then the knives and swords were found and were used between countries such as England, Scotland, Ireland, and other European countries. When artillery was found, such as guns, bombs, missiles, and other deadly weapons, the real wars began.Few of those wars include World War I and II, Vietnam War, and the Gulf War.

The South, being predominantly agricultural, needed these slaves as workers in the fields of their plantations.
The North, on the other hand, was heading more and more towards manufacturing.They were less dependent on slavery as many of the workers in the factories were immigrants.Because of the factory atmosphere, many of the immigrants settled in the large cities on the North where jobs were easier to find.
Citizens of the South believed that slaves were better off than the immigrants because their owner took care of their basic needs.Southerners often tried to show the plantation life of a slave as a family atmosphere.They said that “Immigrants were underpaid and over worked” and “often working conditions were unsafe and unhealthy.”
States rights also played a role in the start of the Civil War.Thefirst state to secede from the Union was South Carolina.In their declaration of secession they stated that they were leaving the Union on two defining factors:”the right of a State to govern itself; and the right of a people to abolish a Government when it becomes destructive of the ends for which it was instituted.”Southerners believed that it should be up to the state to become a free or slave state and that the federal government should make no bill having to do with slavery.South Carolina is quoted as saying …
