  • The Seven Deadly Sins, also known as the Capital Vices or Cardinal Sins, is a classification of the most objectionable vices which has been used since early Catholic times to educate and instruct followers concerning (immoral) fallen man's tendency to sin. The final version of the list consists of wrath, greed, sloth, pride, lust, envy, and gluttony.

  • Today, I chose to introduce a comic about the Secession War in connection with what we are doing at school.

    This series of comics tells the adventures of two Yankee soldiers of the cavalry, the Sergeant Chesterfield and the Corporal Blutch.

    This volume,the second of this series, called "Du Nord Au Sud", tells us a very violent battle between the Yankees ans the Rebels.

    The war is just declared and the two heroes, Chesterfield & Blutch, accompanied of two other soldiers from the cavalry of Fort Bow, have to join general Grant's army who is fighting against Lee's. This volume tells us all the ideas that the soldiers have to kill a lot of ennemies and the soldier's conditions of life during the war. During a battle, Chesterfield is captured and tortured but Bluch delivers him.

    At the end of the comic, a lot of soldiers from the two armies have been killed and we understand this war is very bloody and there is no trace of peace.

    This story also shows us all the aspects of the Secession War : use of the machine guns and the torture that the prisoners undergo (Chesterfield is captured by the Rebel army and he is fastened on the floor under an extremely hot sun and without water ! )

    To conclude, I advise you this series of comics which permites to discover the Secession War and have fun in the same time but in spite of the funny aspect of the adventures, the situations and the characters, I think this series is in fact a violent denonciation of the horrors of this war.
