During World War 1 a lot changed about American society. Some things that changed were that women had gained the right to vote, women held more jobs, and the great migration. In 1919 women got the right to vote, because of the ¾ vote from states, women felt they had more of a say in society due to men being at war. The amendment said that the right to vote shall not be denied on the account of sex. During America’s time in WW1
Many different groups in the United States have fought for their equal rights through civil rights battles. Each one inspiring the next, slowly transforming America into the country it is today. Some of these battles have come a long way, since the beginning of history for a lot, some of which are still in the mist of being fought, some of which made huge improvements yet still haven’t reached full equality. Through the many steps taken in marches, and blood and tears shed though the riots, all these battles though has change the way Americans see one another and their country. Going for the common goal of equality, these civil rights movements have changed America for the greater good.
The Civil war was the greatest yet the deadliest war in history but this war was fought for everyone to be free. The United States had many conflicts within causing it to be opposition and segregation among the people. “The Civil War reduced sectional antagonism and made the United States truly one nation in many different ways”. The war also helped Americans realize there was betters ways to solve contrast between the two states.This war can also be called the war of rebellion. It brought about the Emancipation Proclamation which freed the slaves, It brought the northern and southern states together,it also states that federal laws are more important than state laws.
During the history we have experimented changes that prove the human evolution. Perhaps, we make history every day, but none of that can be possible without the brave people that change things and prepare the world for us in the past. This class opened my eyes to the ideals that every American should have, and how to stop the conformism that we still experimenting every day. The idea of commenting one topic of positive or negative impact is impossible because every event, good or bad, lead us to the powerful and free nation we live. If I have to pick one event that really captivated my attention was the fight of African-American slaves to recover their rights and the conditions they used to live.
For years slavery was an issue but when the Emancipation Proclamation was issued some issues “resolved.” When this freedom statement was being issued to the Union and the Confederacy many slaves gained freedom and were allowed to fight. The Emancipation Proclamation impacted the war greatly due to the freeing of many slaves. In the Emancipation Proclamation, Lincoln was trying to free slaves in the Confederate States. “That on the 1st day of January, in the year of our Lord 1863, all persons held as slaves within any state of designated part of a state, the people whereof shall then be in rebellion against the United States, shall be then, thenceforward, and forever free; and the executive government of the United States, including the military

This grievance impacts the people today by showing that people are lucky that they don 't have to house soldier and shows how free we actually are.The amendment that affects people today tremendously would be the second amendment about the right to
I believe that the American Revolution was revolutionary because there were many events, impacts, and effects after the war was over. When something is “Revolutionary” it means that it causes a dramatic or drastic change. In 1776, the Declaration of Independence was written all because the people needed to be heard, from document 2. What if the King listened, would there still have been a war? I do not believe so because so much time was spent trying to get the people’s point across, and it worked, after the war.
This individualism thrived during the Revolutionary War as the Americans created their own democratic nation in response to a monarchy that would not allow them to govern themselves (Bellah 142). Individualism fueled the American dream of bettering one’s life using one’s own grit. It was the defining ideology that led pioneers out west to start afresh. Up until the 1950s, however,
In the Civil War America faced an internal battle between the North (Union) and the South (Confederates). Both of these wars played a crucial role in developing the United States of America. Although the Revolutionary War is credited with having the most important impact, the Civil War changed America more significantly, and for the better. The American Revolution (War of Independence) is one of the most crucial wars in American history. The American Revolution had begun as a rebellion, like most situations.
The American Revolution is an integral event in modern history. It set the wheels in motion for practically every political and social order we take for granted today. The American Revolution was fundamentally a radical movement because of its democratic ideals, its separation of church and state, and its unifying of the rich and poor through the ideals of liberty and the pursuit of happiness. Prior to the revolution, American society reflected its mother country. Gordon Wood writes: “we have often overlooked how dominantly British and traditional the colonists’ culture still was."
