The Oklahoma Constitution and the United States Constitution have a variety of similarities and differences, thus creating an array of topics of discussion. The very structure of the state 's constitution holds close similarities to the U.S. Constitution, given the fact that it was ratified over a century later. At the time of the making of the Oklahoma Constitution, there were arguments between the left and right areas of the state. These arguments were based on the fact that the people involved in the making of the state 's constitution wanted to have the area that was labeled "Indian territory" and make it a secure part of the state of Oklahoma. After doing so, the two areas merged and created the document that the state still uses to this day.
In An Example for All the Land, Kate Masur focuses on the struggle over issues of racial equality in Washington D.C. during the Civil War and Reconstruction.

The differences between Turner and Eales’ thoughts are very minor, Turners talks about generalized change in the American man and his family, whereas Eales talks about the change in women .
