ch.20: War Aims
• Where to fight the war: what geographical areas should you focus upon and why?
• How to fight the war: offensive, defensive, or some other strategic plan?
• How long to fight.
• Overall war aims: what exactly does your side wish to achieve? (really think about this one)
• Will you draft soldiers or depend on volunteers? If you do institute a draft, how will it be done?
• Slavery? What will your policies be regarding slavery?
• Finances and taxes: how will you fund the war?
• Foreign diplomacy: what strategies will be used in dealing with the European powers?
Your distinguished group should devise a preliminary list of recommendations and be able to discuss them with the class.
