Imagine that you are living in one of the border states at the beginning of the Civil War. Write a letter to a relative explaining why you plan to join either the Union or Confederate army. Include in your letter specific reasons for your decision. Also discuss any fears you might have about fighting in the war.
Do not plagiarize, my teacher uses tools to check all work. If you are using sources, please cite in MLA and cite properly. This is a letter to a relative, which means use first person.
This letter should be at least 400 words in length.
