In a war that was called by about as many different names as there were states in conflict, Union were called by many names.

Some other terms used within ranks were Blue Jackets (nickname for Union sailors), Bummers (referred to Sherman's men who became experts at foraging during the March to the Sea), Redlegs (nickname for Union artillerymen), and Zouave (known for their unique North African style of uniform) are just a few.

The absolute majority of Europeans is most likely rather positive about the European Union, but there has been some negativity towards EU for its whole lifetime. The most common reason for this is nationalism among European citizens. Some consider that the developments in European integration thr…eaten the sovereignties of their own countries. This is mainly because different organs in EU can make decisions that apply to all member countries even if some of them were against the decision. There has also been some fear that EU will develop to a federation (like U.S. is) which would also be against the idea of a sovereign national state. EU is also sometimes considered 'distant' when compared to national decision-makers, this may indicate a low state of knowledge about the structures which could be partly causing the criticism towards the so-called suit-men in Brussels.

Because they thought that if they were all united they would be stronger and they are after all a whole continent
The European Union wasn't formed instantly. It is a result of thecombo of various institutions that initially promoted a EuropeanCommunity. This turned to a Union, after agreeing on the basis of atreaty.
Well for starters you know there are institutions in the Europe Union. Here are some of them: Parliament: Directly elected which means a system of choosing political officeholders in which the voters directly cast ballots for the person, persons or political party that they desire to see elected. An…other institution is: Court of Justice in which ncompasses the whole judiciary. Seated in Luxembourg, it has three sub-courts; the European Court of Justice , the General Court and the Civil Service Tribunal. The institution was originally established in 1952 as the Court of Justice of the European Coal and Steel Communities (as of 1958 the Court of Justice of the European Communities). The Treaty of Lisbon of 2009, the court changed to its current name and comprises formally the Court of Justice along with two subordinate chambers: the General Court (formerly the Court of First Instance) and the Civil Service Tribunal. Isn't it amazing at what people can accomplish!

Iceland, Norway, Switzerland, Liechtenstein, Andorra, Monaco, Vatican City, San Marino, Russia, Belarus, Ukraine, Moldova, Turkey, Macedonia, Albania, Kosovo, Serbia, Montenegro, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Croatia, Kazakhstan, Azerbaijan, Georgia, and Armenia. However, a number of these countries want… to be, and some are actually in the process of becoming a part of, the European Union. Here is more detail: - Croatia is acceding, meaning they are currently assuming a position in the European Union, and will actually become a member on July 1, 2013. - Iceland, Macedonia, Montenegro, and Turkey are all candidates, meaning they have sent in their applications to join the EU and are awaiting approval, in addition, they still have to go through more steps to proceed to the acceding stage. Members in this stage may still be denied, for example, Turkey. Turkey is a very controversial member and countries such as France and Germany do not want the country to join because they would have the 2nd largest population (meaning the second largest number of representatives) and they are barely even European, as 3% lies in Europe and the country is not necessarily close with Europe. However, countries such as the UK want Turkish membership because the EU seeks close ties with Eastern Europe (keep that in mind as you read this data, as you will see almost all of these listed countries are in the east) and the country will also bring some sort of economic and social stability. - Albania and Serbia have sent in their applications, meaning their applications must be approved before they can move to the candidate stage, where they must go through more steps to then move on to the acceding stage. - Bosnia and Herzegovina and Kosovo are recognized as potential candidates, which means the EU wants them. However, they must send in their applications themselves where they will then be reviewed and accepted. However, almost all the countries listed before not in the current process of admission are considering and want to join the EU. There are a few exceptions, however, which are countries that currently have no interest to join (however, they may show interest in the future): Andorra, Vatican City, Belarus, Russia, Kazakhstan, and somewhat Azerbaijan. That means the remainder of the nations are definitely considering applying. I know that Georgia and the Ukraine are in partners in working for EU membership. Also, there are talks about Romania and Moldova joining to become one country (in which Moldova would just be swallowed by Romania); this would make "Moldova" a member of the EU by default. Armenians have taken vote and about 70% of the citizens approve of applying for membership. There are also members outside of Europe that are potential candidates! These include the countries of Israel, Morocco, and Cape Verde. Lastly, to the point. Countries in Europe that do not seek membership have mainly one reason why they do not want to. They simply have no need. They either have their own unions (for example, Russia and Belarus are engaged in a close union), are doing fine on their own and do not want to be disturbed or involved, or the EU does not want them. For example, the EU has proposed many sanctions on Belarus and aren't too friendly with the nation. Belarus has already been described as a dictatorial country with little freedom and human rights, and they would have much cleaning up to do if they seek EU candidacy. (MORE)
