Federalist electors gave one of the state’s electoral votes to John Adams in 1796 and four more in 1800. Jefferson won all of the state’s electors in 1804, but his successor, James Madison, lost three of these to Charles Pinckney in 1808. No Federalist presidential candidate won an electoral vote from North Carolina thereafter. Following the “Revolution of 1800” that brought Jefferson into the Executive Mansion, Federalists persisted and sent members of their party to Congress. Although they never achieved a majority in the North Carolina legislature, Federalist membership almost reached forty percent.
Theodore Roosevelt was the 26th president, serving from 1901 to 1909. He brought new power to office by leading Congress and the American people to progressive reform and strong foreign policies such as the Roosevelt Corollary.

The Tacoma Narrows Bridge opened to the public on 1 July 1940, construction having been completed in just one year and seven months. It had a span of 1810 metres, the third longest in the world at the time, and promised to bring great economic growth to the Kitsap Peninsula in the US state of Washington. However, after its spectacular collapse on 7 November 1940, just four months after its completion, the Tacoma Narrows suspension bridge is now remembered as one of the most famous structural failures in history. The Tacoma Narrows forms part of the Puget Sound strait, which separates the Kitsap Peninsula from the Washington mainland. A toll bridge across the Narrows to replace the existing ferry system was proposed in order to make use of the economic potential that the mainly undeveloped peninsula had to offer.
In 1945, European map was absolutely changed, the chaos was happened. While the first immigration strategy was admitted in 1901, Ministery for Immigration of Austalian Federation was established in 1945.

Almost all Japanese Americans were punished and held accountable for the actions of a small group. Many of the camps didn’t provide the proper care for the families they were holding, when they could have remained home living their normal life. Lastly, many Japanese Americans were forced to accept racism as the ‘new norm’ which is inhumane. Imprisoning thousands of Japanese and disciplining them for the actions of a small group, is inappropriate and unfair. Due to the internment camps, many family members were lost and many families were torn apart.
Every country has events they wished didn’t happen.The United States of America combined all of those situations in The Indian Removal Act in 1830. The Age of Jackson and the Indian Removal Act permanently crippled the Native American culture and population. Before the Age of Jackson, Thomas Jefferson had similar goals, but different practices and sought to more peacefully assimilate Native Americans into American culture. Then, under Jackson’s presidency, America forced the indigenous peoples to move elsewhere so Americans could access the land they had been living on. This removal led to many deaths and the erosion of Native American practices in the United States.

Victims of asbestos-related claims, as well as their families, have been pushing for new legislation to be passed, particularly in New South Wales, which would enable plaintiffs to claim for damages within a 12-month period from the time a person dies from an asbestos disease. This is because in some circumstances people do not realise that the disease is related to asbestos until after death. These changes in the law have already been passed in South Australia, Western Australia and Victoria. (decision-realated) Mr Banton, who received $800,000 in a settlement from Amaca in 2000 for a less serious asbestos disease, took advantage of a 1995 change to the law allowing a second claim to be made. Ms Segelov said that "remarkably" Mr Banton was the first plaintiff to claim such further damages.
Prisoner goes to High Court to win right to vote Kenneth Nguyen April 25, 2007 Should prisoners be allowed to vote? Age readers decide. A prisoner is bringing a High Court case that could secure a historic right to vote for 20,000 of Australia 's prisoners. Vickie Lee Roach, currently being held in the Dame Phyllis Frost Women 's Prison at Deer Park, argues that Commonwealth Electoral Act provisions that bar prisoners from voting in federal elections are unconstitutional. The broad ban, first proposed under former special minister of state Eric Abetz in 2005, was introduced by the Howard Government last year, as part of an electoral law package that also shortened the period in which people can enrol to vote (from seven days after the electoral writ is issued to three days) and introduced a requirement that people provide proof of identity when enrolling or
Another way the Canadian Government ineffectively responded to Aboriginal affairs was through the social issues the Aboriginals dealt with. One example of this would be the Sixties Scoop. Prior to the 1950’s, children were taken to residential schools, where they were forced to forget their Native culture, and were punished if they attempted to do otherwise. In the late 1950’s, people started to realize the negative impacts the residential schools had on the children, as well as their families. This led to the drastic overrepresentation of Aboriginal children in the child welfare system in the 1960’s.
