After the Civil War ended, President Lincoln was faced with the task of rejoining a Union which was thriving less than fifty years earlier. In 1863 to achieve this goal, Lincoln introduced his restoration plan to the country. During this time of Reconstruction many compromises were made in order to bring the south into American society once more, while incorporating the needs of the newly emancipated slaves. Although Lincoln was very helpful in trying to join the north and south, he was assassinated before and his successor, Andrew Johnson disliked by the majority of the nation, could not follow through with its ideals.

Its Just Syrup And Water - 1,988 words
There is a grand war going on in todays world that many of us are unaware of, but are affected by everyday. This war takes place at home, on the highways, in magazines, and in stores.

Women In Combat - 695 words
From Kelly Flinn to G.I. Jane, controversy has raged in recent months over whether women are fit for military service (Brown 326). In the articles Women Unfit for Combat? Au Contraire! and Women are not a Warrior Class, both authors convey their thoughts on women in combat. Both authors give many reasons why or why not women should be allowed to fight in combat. Timothy Brown, the author of Women Unfit for Combat? Au Contraire! gives many more strong examples to argue his case than the author of Women are not a Warrior Class and, consequently, has a more persuasive essay. In an effort to discourage women from considering combat rolls in the military, Paul Hackett, one of the authors of Women ...

Women's suffrage upset many women in the United States. Women were known to be in the home at all times. They were there to give care for the their husbands and children. Politicians feared women coming in the political race because they thought that women might vote them out of office. In the early 19th century, women were considered second class citizens. Often after marriage they weren't allowed to own property. It was also improper for women to speak in public alone. They were told to refrain from getting an education. Lucretia Mott and ...

A History Of Womens Suffrage - 1,020 words
Woman suffrage is the right of women to vote. Today, women in nearly all countries have the same voting rights as men. But they did not begin to gain such rights until the early 1900's, and they had to overcome strong opposition to get them. The men and women who supported the drive for woman suffrage were called suffragists. During colonial times, the right to vote was limited to adult males who owned property. Many people thought property owners had the strongest interest in good government and so were best qualified to make decisions. Most women could not vote, though some colonies gave the vote to widows who owned property. By the mid-1700's, many colonial leaders were beginning to think ...

Womens Suffrage - 1,782 words
The womens suffrage movement began in Seneca Falls, New York during a convention on the rights of women. Seneca Falls was a progressive town but even here, Elizabeth Cady Stantons call for suffrage was controversial. Voting and politics were seen as completely male domains and it was shocking to think of women involved in either. The primary argument of suffragists was that they were being denied one of the most basic rights of Democracy. They were expected to live under laws which they could not vote for and pay taxes to a government which didnt represent them. Men were only half of the population but they were in charge of all of the decisions. Not only was it unfair, it went against the w ...

"To have drunkards, idiots, horse racing rum-selling rowdies, ignorant foreigners, and silly boys fully recognized, while we ourselves are thrust out from all the rights that belong to citizens, is too grossly insulting to be longer quietly submitted to. The right is ours. We must have it" (Rynder 3). This quote from one of Cady Stanton's speeches shows what great injustices women had to suffer. Stanton is saying that even the scum of the earth had more rights than highly cultured women. In many aspects of life, women's rights were dramatically less than those of men. Women were not allowed to vote, yet they had to pay taxes. Women were subjects of their husbands, and expected to do all of t ...

They discussed three things at the convention: first to denounce of anti-slavery reformers and placate the southern temperance societies; second to sponsor legislation against the sale of liquor and lastly to adopt total abstinence from all that can intoxicate.

Johnsons plan for reconstruction was called Presidential Reconstruction. In this plan he made it that the seven remaining states could be readmitted to the Union if they did several things. The seven states were Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Mississippi, North Carolina, South Carolina, and Texas. The guidelines that they must had to meet were to declare session illegal, swear allegiance to the union, and to ratify the Thirteenth Amendment, which would end slavery. All of the states except Texas quickly accepted these terms and elected legislators.

Criminal Personality - 331 words
In order to determine what makes a criminal a "criminal," you must first understand their personality. Behavior is largely a result of the way a person things. A personality is what makes a person. Even though a person might have the look of a criminal, the thought patterns of that person are what make them a criminal. In this paper I would like to identify key points which link criminals to their personalities. Criminals decisions to commit crimes come from abnormal thinking patterns, says psychoanalysts from St. Elizabeth's Hospital. Researchers Yocheleson and Samenow identify similar thought patterns found in crimes, which include: constant lying, fail to develop empathy, expect their des ...

The Mexican War - 1,102 words
Through this essay Thomas Corwin is stating his opposition to President Polks adamant propaganda of manifest destiny. Corwin points out that stealing Mexican land would only create domestic desputes back in the United States between slave-holding states and non save-holding states. Corwin states that the acquisition of new land would lead to desputes about weather of not the new land should be deemed slave territory or free territory and weather or not slavery would be permitted in its boarders. These statements act as a eerie forecast of the disputes which will lay the plot for the Civil War that comes two decades latter. Corwin, being a republican was greatly disturbed by the fact that wit ...

Syntax: On page 84 Stanton uses one sentence paragraphs for the next 15 paragraph.

This is a great statement that sums up a good deal about Jack Stanton, the presidential candidate that this book follows. The handshake is the threshold act of politics and Jack Stanton knows it. He loves to go out, meet the people and shake hands with them. When he lost the New Hampshire primary he was not upset at all. A large number of voters on leaving the polls said the deciding factor was that they had met Stanton. Unfortunately though the people began to judge Stanton by what they had read in the papers. If the voters had judged Jack Stanton with their hands, a handshake, ...
