Southern statesmen desired to hold the West and the South together as a single political party. The theory on which they based such hope was simple: they both produced raw materials and bought manufactured goods. The union of the two sections prior to further economic expansion seemed perfect. However, Northern statesmen were not blind to such interests and also recognized the importance of the formation of strong ties with the agrarian West and bringing their produce to the north. The development of canals and railways would cement this economic union, and the results were evident.
Additionally, these doctrines were also used for the United States’ benefit because in the Monroe Doctrine, the United States forbade European powers from trying to conquer South American countries; in the Truman Doctrine, the United States tried to contain communism and to stop its spread across Europe. The Monroe Doctrine and the Truman Doctrine were used to help other countries against hostile powers, and at the same time these doctrines helped the United States to become and to remain a world power during the Imperialism and Cold War era.

Roosevelt believes that freedom is being able to express yourself in the ways you believe and what you believe in. Roosevelt wanted people to be able to worship whatever or whoever they want, along with being able to express how they feel in their own ways and without getting in trouble for doing so. Lastly, Roosevelt wanted citizens to be able to do want they want as long as it doesn’t break any of their country 's laws. Roosevelt’s ideas about freedom and maintaining freedom were good for the time period while he was president. However, president John F. Kennedy had some of his own ideas about to conserve freedom of

It gave character to the country [Doc. B]. Instead of uniting as a nation to reach middle ground on issues of state constitutional rights to govern themselves, which states would be free states and which would be slave states, the regions began to look out for
This is an important concept because it explains that officers should not follow society and pressure from the public and media but follow the laws that our country. This a good thing to have when dealing with persuasive criminals and individuals. Both officers and civilians benefit from this principle because it protects both parties. Officers also need to know the laws, so they can stay away form trouble and not be deceived by public persuasion.

In response, the Borderlanders didn’t resist; they continued their way and thrived in the backcountry. This is evident of Britain, their home country, influenced the values of the inhabitants of Greater Appalachia. The Borderlanders made it their mission to avoid oppression, and did so by creating a society in the backlands of more civilised areas, such as the Midlands and the Deep
Mississippi was made strategically important by its proximity to the Mississippi River. The Mississippi River was important to both the Union and the Confederacy. It was valued by the Union because complete control of it would grant the Union a valuable shipping route, making it much easier to supply their troops (especially as much of the agricultural production for the Union was in the Mississippi watershed). It was important for the Confederacy to keep at least partial control of the river, because losing it completely to the Union troops would result in the Confederacy splitting in two. By 1863, the Union had control of the entire Mississippi River, with the exception of the riverside fort of Vicksburg, Mississippi.
The Chesapeake Bay was a southern plantation system; the slaves worked on self-sufficient on tobacco plantation, the African salves replace the indentured servants.

Masters were conditioned by custom to provide food and shelter for their servants.

Lincoln desired a lenient reconstruction plan that would allow Southern states more freedom to govern themselves as they re-pledged loyalty to the United States and abolished slavery. The Wade-Davis Bill was proposed by radicals and it called for the president to appoint leaders and allow only citizens who had not "who had never borne arms against the United State"(Brinkley pg. 347) to vote for officials in office. Lincoln 's leniency seemed to be a more peaceful approach that may have helped unite the states rather than cause further conflict. John Wilkes Booth, a radical Southern leader, ensured that the radical reconstruction plan, indeed was passed as Lincoln was the only one standing in the way of radical reconstruction. Andrew Johnson
To repair a country that has been split in half requires making significant strides that will create harmony between both sides. After the American Civil War multiple phases were required in order to mend the broken country. These phases were Presidential Reconstruction and Radical Republican Restoration. Presidential Reconstruction was the reconstruction plan put in place by President Johnson who had to step into the role of the man who would fix the country after Lincoln’s assignation. While Johnson’s reconstruction plan did not anger the southerners whom he was trying to get to support, his methods were too lenient towards the south as he allowed for mostly states rights.
Congress has the best plan for the U.S. Reconstruction. The plan Congress made gives freedmen the right to vote. It recognizes freedmen 's rights as well. Congress’s plan lets the Southerns keep their property but doesn’t reimburse them for all of their lost and damaged property. The plan uses military law and governors.
This legislation was pointed toward the Confederacy since they believed it was their right to keep slaves. Enacting the Emancipation Proclamation would give the Union a major advantage economically, politically and in the military.
