The Jacksonian Era was the time period of Andrew Jackson’s presidency. This began in 1828 when Jackson was elected president. The era is sometimes described as a time when the United States experienced the “democratization of politics.” In a democracy every citizen has an equal say in the government's decisions and actions. Some people of this time period believed that Jackson is notable for democratizing the United States during the Jacksonian Era. Others, on the other hand, believe he was far from accomplishing that. Politics are a way that expresses how the Unites States was not democratized during this time period. Jacksons animosity towards the Indians exposed his undemocratic actions during his first years of his presidency. However,
Valley Forge was a winter camp 18 miles away from Philadelphia, where George Washington took his troops during 1777 and 1778. The British army is comfortable in Philadelphia, while Valley Forge has harsh conditions with the cold weather and the lack of supplies. I will not reenlist when my 9-month enlistment is over. I will not reenlist for these reasons, diseases, lack supplies, and cold weather and smoky air.
The 1920’s were a period of tension between the traditionalists and modernists. The tension between these two groups was aroused by the economical advancements, social developments, and cultural changes in the 1920s. These tensions were manifested by the economic outburst and the passing of certain laws. Socially, Congress passed the 19th Amendment which allowed women the right to vote. Economically, the introduction of the automobile, radio, and the airplane brought prosperity in America. Culturally, the 18th Amendment banned the sale and drinking of alcohol in America.
The “Era of Good Feelings,” from 1815-1825, was not an accurate label of the period after the War of 1812 because of various conflicts in economic nationalism , disagreements in politics, and the disunion of the citizens. In addition, several sectional issues emerged, mostly between the North and the South, regarding to the Tariff of 1816 and the conflict over slavery. Both nationalism and sectionalism had a great influence on whether the period from 1815-1825 was actually the “Era of Good Feelings.” Despite the fact that nationalism was emerging, it also caused many economic issues, thus, the “Era of Good Feelings” was not labeled accurately.
If I was a soldier at Valley Forge, I would quit. In “Estimates of Illness and Deaths at Valley Forge” it showed the estimated deaths and illnesses reported in Valley Forge. (Document A) According to document A, in February about 50% of the soldiers got sick. Also, about 1800 to 2500 soldiers died. In the second document it was a painting of George Washington presenting the Congressional Committee to the soldiers at Valley Forge. (Document B) In this painting if you look at the soldiers, you can see that some soldiers don’t have any shoes on. At the bottom left corner, you can also see a dead horse. This might be because of sickness, starvation, or the harsh cold weather. The last document I used was the Diary of Doctor Waldo. (Document
Trade helped Islam spread quickly. According to Doc A, Mecca was prosperous and important since it was at the crossroads of caravan trade. Because Mecca was at the crossroads of trade (Islam was there) many foreigners became introduced to Islam and they expressed that idea to other people.
Jews had to leave Israel in the first place because they were forced from their homes by the Roman Empire. When the Jews returned to Israel in 1948, Palestinians were still living there. The return of the Jews was a problem because it caused war to break out between the Arabs and Israelis. Wars between the two are still occurring today.
After Muslim conquests, the growth of cities flourished under Islam rule. Muslim rulers gained control of the pre-existing cities and founded new ones from Asia to Europe. Cities and urban areas in Muslim society were important because of the role it plays in religion, trade, and culture.
Islam is a religion that controls their follower's daily lives. It quickly spread throughout many large and small civilizations all throughout the world. Two civilizations that Islam affected were the Byzantine Empire and China. The Byzantine empire was the section of Rome that remained after the fall of Rome and was a very successful civilization in its time. During the rise of Christianity, the Byzantine empire became a Christian-based civilization and used the church to solve its political and economic problems that sprang up after the fall of Rome. Similar to the Byzantine Empire, China was very successful before Islam. The main difference was that China remained successful all throughout the spread of Islam while the Byzantine Empire
The 1896 United States presidential election is often classified as a realigning election– an election that results in the reorganization of the structure and policies of political parties. The Republican Party, dominant in the North and East, promoted “an activist national government” and industrial expansion, while the Democratic Party, dominant in the South, promoted a limited national government and opposed rapid industrialization that hurt those in rural areas–mainly farmers . The 1896 election was mainly an election of principles and the issues that played a central role in the election–tariffs and currency–were topics of intense political discussion for decades before the election, mainly as a result of industrialization and economic

He believed that there were four humors that made up the human body. The factors used to balance the humors was climate, location, age, and diet. The four humors were Sanguine, Choleric, Melancholic, and Phlegmatic. The way Martyn Shuttleworth describes the four humors was, “ Sanguine is the blood, related to the element of air and the liver, dictated courage, hope and love. Choleric is the Yellow bile related to the element of fire and the Gall Bladder could lead to bad temper and anger, if in excess. Melancholic is the Black bile, associated with the element of earth and the spleen, which would lead to sleeplessness and irritation if it dominated the body. Phlegmatic is the Phlegm associated with the element of water and the brain, which was responsible for rationality but would dull the emotions if allowed to become dominant.” Those truly were what Greek medicine was based on for decades. It was said to be very important which is why the medicine that was created was centered around keeping the humors in balance.

Globalization occurred in the 1400s – 1800s was a major advancement in the human world; ideas were spread, economies grew, new lands were discovered, and new technologies arose. During these time new global networks grew through newly discovered sea trade networks. Through the exploration of these routes new lands were discovered. Countries such as Spain conquered these newly discovered lands, and Spain’s power grew. Other kingdoms and countries followed the trend of discovery, found their own new lands, and colonized them. This caused the power of these governments to grow. Newly discovered trade routes allowed trade between Europeans and Asians to cause an economic increase. Ideas were also spread along these trade routes. Military technology grew, gunpowder a technology from China was becoming a popular weapon in the European monarchies. Ideas such as the Reformation, Scientific Revolution, and the Enlightenment led to new inventions and ways of thinking. Faith was also spread to the new lands conquered by Europeans.
