The question is asking you to relate some of the themes to your life. Both you and I are pretty far removed from the American Civil War. Still there are themes of fear, patriotism, shame and maturity that you can tap into. Like Henry, there might have been times in your life when it was beneficial to lie rather then tell the truth. Like Henry you have also made mistakes and matured from the. Many of Henry's experiences were life and death situations yet they were rooted in the coming of age of a young man. Consider these instances and you should be able to make connections.
