I think that they are two very good pieces about the Civil War. They both explain the tragedy most people went through during the war.

These are both great stories that come from the Civil War. These stories I believe that these stories do corespond with eachother, in the events, and what occurs. I really enjoyed these stories.

I think these stories correspond with each other because they both talk about the Civil War, and Willie goes away to war and in an episode of war a soldier gets wounded. Willies girlfriend gets her heart broken, and the wounded sodier gets his leg cut off.

I found both "An Episode of War" and "Willie Has Gone to the War" to be touching and well-written stories. I also found that they do indeed correspond with each other, regardless of the fact that they have different views. "An Episode of War" shows the war to be brutal, but it also expresses the pride and courage of a soldier and patriot. On the other hand, "Willie Has Gone to the War" was about Willie's girlfriend mourning the fact that he is leaving for the war and makes the war itself seem evil and overpowering. In the story, the war is seen as the enemy that is taking Willie away.

I think these stories were very well written and definatly correspond with each other. I think the two stories explain the pain of war and the feelings that go with it.

I think that these sories are alike each other because they noth are about the civil war. And willie goes away from war is just like a episode of wae because in willie goes away from war his mom gets heart broken when he leaves. And in an episode of war the sholdier gets wounded and these are just alike.

i think the stories were very well written. They definately correspond with one another because they both explain the hardships of war.

I think they kind of compare. Yes they both talk about the civil war, but they both have their own little message. "Episode of War" was a story about someone in the war and what happened to him, while "Willie Goes To The War" is a letter about how the writer feels about Willie going. They both are terrific pieces of Civil War literature, but i think that they have their own ways and veiw points. In other words, their own message about the war.

I think these two pieces correspond with each other in the way that they both portray the sad and gloomy side of war. "An Episode of War' showed this by showing the general's struggle with getting his arm amputated. "Willie Has Gone to the War" portrayed this by showing the sadness and depression of the speaker who had witnessed Willie's departure to the war.

Personally i really like the realism writtings. "An Episode of War" was a fake story and at the same time had realthings that happened in the war. For example he deaths through the amputation of limbs. In the Poem "Willie Has Gone to War", it shows how young one and love one wee sent to the war. Give you a taste of how people felt when there loves were being sent to war.

I think both the stories were really good. They both talked a lot about a soldiered getting wounded. In both of the stories one of the main men lose something very important, one man loses his wife and another loses his leg.

I agree with Richie these two stories were well written and also were very good stories to read. I also thought that they caught your attentionn right in the beggining and kept it interesting throughout the whole story aking it even a better read.

I personally loved "Willie Has Gone to War". I thought it was a beautiful way to describe the various emotions that one has for someone when they go off to anywhere, nonetheless war. An Episode of War was a litlle boring to me but I still enjoyed the paragraph of when he was describing the scene on the battle field. Also, who doesn't like hearing about amputating someone.

I think they both do correspind witch each other. One story was an in war piece of literature talking about how brutal and grotesque war is espcially with amputations. Willie has gone to war, didnt have anything to do with the war itself. It mostly had to do with missing someone, especally a child when they go to war. Willie seemed to be a son, and the mother was the narrator of the story. Both show how war is sad and not victorious always because hurts someone literally and figuratevly

I like these two stories. I think that the two did correspond to each other because they all had to deal with the sorrows of war. But one was a story of amputation and the other was a poem.
