Confederate History and How it links to today

Gillian Crawford wrote about the impact of the pardoning of confederate generals after the Civil War. The political climate we have today can be linked back to these events. She does a good job of providing examples to link back to her main ideas. The writer’s opinions do come about, but they do not overshadow the point she is trying to get across. The author does not use any vulgar language, which helps her be level-headed and rational. In a formal piece like the Arak journal, it is important to come across like a professional and present a reasonable argument. She does a good job of doing this. Crawford provides many examples of Confederate events by including exact dates and quotes from those mentioned. This helps to boost her credibility and convince her audience she is right. Overall this was a well written piece. If just one discussion comes out of this, then the author has done her job.
