Abstract:

When thinking about war , it is critically important to understand lessons learned of the past, and how post conflict changes influence doctrine and thinking on waging the next conflict . Examining the American Civil War, it is easy to ask why the armies engaged in such outdated tactics in the face of advanced weaponry . What questions should have been examined during the pre-war period to understand the changes in warfare What changes should occur as a result of what is understood How are the lessons learned by the soldiers on the battlefield to be taken into account These questions as well as many others should be examine d, debated and addressed . At the very least , the questions should drive a reevaluation of tactical employment of units.
