The American Civil War is one of the main events in American history, and maybe the most important one after the revolution of 1776 which created the United States. The Civil War was fought from 1861 to 1865 and we can say that in some way it determined the kind of nation that the United States would be. Out of the existing 34 states at the time, approximately 10 of them had withdrawn from the United States and formed the Confederacy. The Confederate States of America, or the “South”, consisted of slave states, were slavery was legal. The remaining states, or the “North”, formed the Union.
Chaewon Lee (Stella) 11.09.17 Period 1 The political parties started in America, by Alexander Hamilton and Thomas Jefferson, who had different viewpoints on how to run a country, and through the newspapers that had great influence on public opinion.

On the contrary, Thomas Jefferson was representing the Democratic- Republicans.
I watched the Lochner v. New York case. Before I watched this case, I did some research and thought it wasn’t a really important or meaningful case because it is just a case that bakery owner against the Bakeshop Act law made by New York City. But After watching this video, I totally changed my mind. Just like the reporter said (at 1:30 of the video), “this case brings rise to an era that defined the supreme court for the next thirty years. Randy Barnett, a professor of Georgetown Law School, also showed how important this case was in American political history.

Jefferson v. Hamilton There are many conflicts in the early years of the American politics. There are two famous political parties during the early years of American Independence, and their ideologies were completely opposite. Thomas Jefferson was the third American President from 1801-1809. Alexander Hamilton was the founder of Federalist party and President Washington elected him as a first secretary of the treasurer.
Talking about Alexander Hamilton, I got interested in this man when I was reading a book called “ the great game”.
