Fort%20sumter The Beginning Pictures and text reguarding Fort SumterFiring on Fort Sumter The first event that I think has a great influence on Jethro is when Shadrach Yale brings news that there was firing at Fort Sumter and it was a Confederate victory. This influences Jethro because Jethro realizes that his brothers will be going to fight.
This is a powerful event because it is the starting point of the Civil War. This event informs Jethro and his family that it will not be an easy victory for the North.
North%20and%20south%20civil%20war Jethro's Brothers Work on the FarmSplit Families The second event that is an influence to Jethro is when his brothers, Tom and Eb leave work on the farm to fight for the North. This influences Jethro because he will now have to do most of the work around the farm by hiself. Also, he will be left to take good care of his family.
This event is so powerful because it changes the everyday life of Jethro tremendously. This event is also very powerful because it shows how his family is beginning to split up because of the war.
