Obviously John Wilkes Booth’s mission was to Kidnap or assassinate lincoln. While Lincoln and the american government were trying to rebuild the union and our country. They were also trying to free the slaves. While the Conspirators were trying to tear apart the American Government. There are many tough parts to the book but obviously the worst one would easily be when Abraham Lincoln was shot in the back of the head by John Wilkes Booth.
Dudley Randall’s “Ballad of Birmingham” is a poem rich with historical context about the bombing of an African American church during a time of segregation. While the poem also addresses the social context of the event, it is primarily focused on the history behind it. Dudley Randall dove into the hearts of Americans by telling them the painful truth of what happened in Birmingham, Alabama with “Ballad of Birmingham.” On September 15, 1963, the Sixteenth Street Baptist Church in Birmingham, Alabama was in the transition from Sunday School to worship services at 10:22 am when a bomb exploded in the African American church.
Guns need to be controlled. From the mass shooting in Newton, Connecticut that killed twenty-seven people, twenty of whom were faultless children at Sandy Hook Elementary, to nine people gunned down during Bible study in Charleston, South Carolina at Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church, guns have proven to be an extreme political problem. In 2011, former Arizona congresswoman, Gabrielle Giffords became a victim of gun violence, along with eighteen other guiltless people. She was shot at point blank range in the head while campaigning outside of a Safeway franchise in suburban Tucson, Arizona. Lucky enough to have a second chance at life, Giffords found the motivation to tackle the law of purchasing and owning a gun.
The Confederate flag is used as a banner to justify mass shootings like the recent massacre by Dylann Roof in Charleston, South Carolina on June 17, 2015. He is suspected of killing 9 African Americans who were praying in the Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church. In April of 2012, Jake England and Alvin Watts killed 3 African Americans and wounded 2 others in Tulsa Oklahoma. These are just a few of the many racist acts committed under the Confederate flag. The Confederate flag has been flown in the South for decades as a symbol of their bravery and valor in the Civil War.
The Laws indictedaccused Joseph Smith with: blasphemy or using God's name in vain, committing murder, committing adultery, stealing and robbing from the gentiles, bearing false witness, and coveting the wives of other men (Ex. 20:3-17). William Law wrote in his diary four days later, ‘Conference is over, and some of the most blasphemous doctrines have been taught by Joseph Smith and others ever heard of such as…that Joseph Smith is a god to this generation, John C. Bennett also accused Joseph Smith of breaking many of the 10 commandments. Commandment #1: Thou Shalt have no other Gods before me! Joseph Smith essentially created another god - a god that was once a man. His god is much more similar to the gods of Greek mythology than to the Hebrew God .
For instance, Mrs. Polgreen writes, “Since 2003, the United Nations estimates that at least 300,000 civilians have been killed in Darfur” Basically, the arab african muslims don’t like the black african muslims, because of that the arab african muslims are killing the black african muslims in great amount of numbers. Moreover, other countries should help them because I don’t think people want to just see a culture or group of people being massacred for just having differences. Hence, other countries should get involved in countries business because they can’t just watch thousands of black african muslims killed. In addition, Mrs. Polgreen states, “This conflict pits black Africans against Arab Africans. (Both groups are Muslim.)...

He then formed the Holy Spirit for the Unification of World Christianity he became famous for group marriage ceremonies and many lawsuits filed against the cult from families who were deprogramming their children. The one cult that left a mark on Americans is The Peoples Temple and its leader Jim Jones. As I started to do my research for this project I had in mind I would do an overview of cults in American society in the 1960’s, 70’s and 80’s but one cult stood out from the rest it and it was The Peoples Temple and Jonestown.
When Joseph Smith, founder of the Mormon Church of Jesus Christ and Latter-day Saints, asked God which Christian denomination he should join, he claimed that God said “they were all wrong” and that “their creeds were an abomination to [my] sight” (Smith). By sharing his discovery, Smith incited violent persecution, “common among all the sects” who “all united to persecute [him]” after fielding attacks on their religion (Smith). Hatred towards Smith grew so violent that he was forced to leave his home in Manchester (Smith), but persecution of Mormons and Mormon communities continued for years. To other Christians, Mormonism offered an unwarranted, modern interpretation of Christian beliefs, history, and saints. The institution of polygamy was seen as its most sacrilegious practice.
Reconstruction DBQ Have you ever wondered who killed Reconstruction? Reconstruction was a point in time after the Civil War wanting to rebuild the United States. The division between the North and the South was because the North wanted all slaves to be free, on the other hand the South didn’t want slaves to be free the South wanted the slaves to be limited on what they can do. I think the South killed Reconstruction because of the KKK and the disagreement on equal rights.
