  • Closing Year Of The Civil War - 1,105 words
    Closing Year Of The Civil War The American Civil War was one of the largest in world history. The number of American lives lost in this war had never been heard of, nor has it been. The fighting that took place tore our nation apart and we still feel the effects 135 years later.

  • Edgar Poe - 297 words
    Edgar Poe 1. The federal government attempted to use many laws to protect the rights of the newly freed slaves, such as the Civil rights Act of 1866, which gave African Americans the right of citizenship and forbade other states from passing their own discriminatory laws. This brought on the Black codes, which restricted much of the African American lives dictating where they were legally allowed to go and designated places they should be in. The fifteenth amendment was also passed, which states that no one can be kept from voting despite their"race", color or past servitude. It seems to nt wanted to lay down the basic rights for the African Americans of the time, but didnt want to give them ...

  • Haitis Politics - 968 words
    Haiti`s Politics The flood of refugees and disorder of democracy in the island nation of Haiti created the great controversy of whether the United States (US) should intervene and restore order in the country. The US turned to its worldview of disengagement to provide guidance; the conclusion questioned if even a drop of American blood should be spilled to aid Haiti. The experience in Vietnam modified attitudes so that the US wouldnt be so quick to intervene militarily in foreign conflicts. In accordance with its worldviews, the US shouldnt have intervened in Haiti since the situation not only lacked a clear threat to the US, but also the substantial benefit and strong public supportreasons ...

    History of Vietnam History of Vietnam Most humans will always have a tendency to protect his own. When the more fortunate notice a victim in any situation, they'll help out those they deem worthy of support, be it morally, financially, or physically. As long as there is free blood flowing in America's veins, she will always step in to keep tyranny on a downfall. The whole Vietnam war is a prime example of human nature not only at it's best, but sadly, also at it's worst. Oppression is perhaps the worst crime that man will ever inflict upon himself. Despite a tyrant's will, the fighting spirit of his followers never dies out. Oppression has the power to turn an average commoner into a force t ...
