Civil War and Reconstruction - 3 statements, help me please!

Hey everyone, tomorrow I have an in-class essay test. We will have one of the following statements to write an essay about. Can anyone give me some ideas?

"You will be asked to discuss the degree to which you agree with one of the following statements. Give evidence for BOTH sides of the statement.

1. "The Civil War was an irrepressible conflict."
2. "The Battle of Gettysburg was the turning point of the Civil War."
3. "In the years following the Civil War, the South was resurrected not reconstructed.""

I don't know what to use as evidence to counteract any of these statements. I also cannot think of anything to support the third statement. Do they mean racism still existed? Any help is appreciated!
