1. “How did Lincoln and Johnson each approach reconstruction?” Johnson did not have Lincoln’s moral sense and political judgement when it came to reconstruction. “As wartime president, Lincoln had offered amnesty to all but high-ranking Confederates” (464). Lincoln had proposed that when ten percent of a rebellious states voters had sworn loyalty (taken an oath), then the state would be restored to the Union as long as it had approved the thirteenth amendment to abolish slavery. Confederate states rejected Lincoln's offer, however Congress then proposed the Wade-Davis Bill, which Henretta refers to as a tougher substitute to Lincoln’s Ten Percent Plan.
But on September 1953, Chief Justice Fred M. Vinson passed away, Who originally stood with the verdict of the Plessy V. Ferguson case. He was later replaced by Chief Justice Earl Warren, who managed to make a unanimous court decision against school segregation. The following year in 1954 “ The chief Justice wrote “ We concluded that in the field of public education the doctrine of “Separate but Equal” has no place (Lewis 205).

This was one of the major reasons for the Civil War .This problem occurred after the signing of both treaties. In addition to partly starting the Civil War in the United States, these two treaties also started civil war in Mexico. This civil war was known as La Reforma.

Finally, after 18 years they were released, but were strongly recommended to take the Alford Plea, in which the defendants have to admit to the crime to get out of prison. The state of Arkansas offered the men the Alford Plea, so they could not sue the state when they got out of prison. In my opinion, that is not
People who have committed felonies and are put in jail get their rights taken away once they are put in uniforms and made to do whatever the parole officers tell them to. One of the main rights taken away are the right to vote in the presidential elections every four years. In today’s society, everybody’s opinion can make in impact in the way our country in ran. Convicted felons have a large percentage of votes that could change the outcome of an election if they were allowed to vote. Convicted felons who have been released should definitely regain their rights to vote.
Even though Dwight D. Eisenhower grew up in a small town in Kansas, he ended the war in Korea, was elected as the 34th US President serving two terms, then worked around the clock to ease the Cold War. Eisenhower and The Korean War Eisenhower was a man of many quotes and my favorite quote of his is "We are going to have peace even if we have to fight for it." Eisenhower was President during the Korean war which lasted from 1950-1953, he then said during his campaign "I shall go to Korea" which is pretty brave if you ask me. He went to Korea on December 2, 1952 and visted the US troops and the South Korean leaders. He was very confident that he was going to end the war in Korea.
‘Dill gave us the idea of making Boo Radley come out’ p.9 This has already been mentioned back in the section about how Jem broke his arm. Two mentions in the first chapter seem to indicate that this is important. Who is Boo Radley? Where do they want him to come out from? ‘It was all right to shut him up, Mr Radley conceded, but insisted that Boo not be charged with anything: he was not a criminal’ p.12 Boo has been shut inside for 20 years, the stories about him are greatly exaggerated, for example Jem’s description of him ‘judging from his tracks’ p.14.
One war fought was the Korean War, Northern Korea went communist and Southern Korea wanted to stay capitalist. The United States of America was aiding South Korea and the Soviets were backing the North. The war lasted from 1950 to 1953. Five million lives were lost and to this day Korea is split into two separate countries. The Korean War was one of the main battles fought in the Cold War (“Korean War”).
.” (Doc. A). He knew what was going to happen, but politicians needed to assure each other that none of this would occur, and that it would eventually all fall into place which it never did. Ten years later, he realized in an another letter that slavery would soon cause a bloody ending. Along with Jefferson, in the mid 1800’s, States started taking their own action.
The armistice of 11th November 1918 brought the Great War to an end. At the time, the agreement signed in a train carriage at Compiegne was not perceived by soldiers as the end of the war, but as an indefinite period of cease fire. Truce was not peace. Troops being stationed where they had fought, conflict outbreaks in Russia, Turkey or Ireland, and the allies’ need to press Germany into accepting their peace treaty, including the difficulties of a rapid reconfiguration of the wartime economy for the requirements of peace, were the reasons why troops were still kept under arms. The demobilization started slowly in 1919.
Soon, after the fall of the satellite nations, the Soviet Union comes to an end. Gorbachev still remained in power as a president instead of a dictator, and Communism was banned from Russia. In 1991 and 1992 Gorbachev and Bush signed START I and START II, which is meant to prevent another arms race between the two countries. The fist decreased the number of warheads to 10,000 and in the next year 3,000. Finally, after these two treaties the Cold War officially ends.
This war started when North Korea crossed over the 38th Parallel Line wanting to make North and South Korea one communist country (654). The war went to North Korea’s odds of winning being higher to South Korea’s of winning being higher (655). In the end, the war landed in a stalemate at the 38th Parallel Line and neither side would budge (655). Eisenhower ended the Korean War by using the threat of atomic weapon use to get a peace treaty signed in 1953 and Korea stayed divided (656). Eisenhower ended the war that would not admit that it was already

After roughly 2 years of fighting, both sides signed a treaty, the Treaty of Mortefontaine, ending the war and the Franco-American alliance. This, surprisingly, was a very good move as now the Americans could support the French commercially against their war with England and the Americans maintained their policy of neutrality and not having alliances. Interestingly, as Gordon Wood further explains, this treaty would have most probably won Adams his reelection had Thomas Jefferson not the presidency right before the treaty was signed (Wood
Japan had first created a plan to bring new order in Asia of 1938 (Doc.C). Time went by and in the beginning of 1941, Japanese high schools and colleges were required to teach about the new world order idea to help everyone understand the process (Doc.A).
