Interview with Jeremiah Handley

Interview question 1

Jeremiah, when you chose to _enlist close to home and fight for the union__,
what caused you to make that choice?

I chose to fight for the Union because I felt that the slaves situation was really bad. They were all treated badly by their owners and that is why they ran away. I want to make their bad situation better.

Interview question 2

Jeremiah, looking back what is something in your life that you are proud or
happy about?

I'm proud that I was able to take care of my mother and run the farm successfully even though I needed some help.

Interview question 3

Jeremiah, what is one thing about your life you wish had been different?

I wish that my brother James didn't join the Confederacy. I don't like the idea that I have to fight against my own brother.

Interview question 4 (Look back at the italicized section at your "ending")

Jeremiah, __did you ever find out what happened to your brother____?

Ask a question that makes Jeremiah talk about one of the issues brought

up at the end of the story you chose to create.

I never found out where my brother was even after the end of the war. I looked for him but I found no traces whatsoever. I hope that he survived the war but I don't have any proof of that.

Photo Prompt- Morning

This is how our tents look like after we woke up and made our beds. The sleeping conditions are terrible here!
