These anchors Menzies claimed proved Zheng He went to America, could have been brought at any time in the past few hundred years, it is impossible to tell when they got there. All of the DNA evidence of Native Americans points to being Asian, which supports the Bering Strait theory and doesn’t have much to say about Menzies’ Theory. The map Menzies claims proves further that Zheng He reached America. The map has come under scrutiny by plenty of historians calling it fake, while others doubt that it is truly a copy of a 15th century map.

The capitol had much more importance during the revolution than the Bruton Parish Church, The Magazine, or the Governors palace. During the revolution, the magazine simply stored gunpowder and weapons, the Governor’s palace housed the governor and his family, as well as storing weapons, and the Bruton parish church was where everyone was required to worship. None of these buildings even come close to the importance of the capitol building. The burgesses and Governor’s council
The Reagan party helped promote the “War on Drugs”, which was a drug prohibition enforced on the United States. During this time, a hysteria over drugs had encompassed a large portion of the United States, resulting in laws being passed which prohibited the use of “illegal” drugs ( A brief history on the war on drugs). This was important to our culture because it started a longstanding hatred of drugs, where up until recently all drugs not for medical use, were illegal. Because this was becoming a bigger problem more people were being put in jail than ever, resulting in less space in prisons. The problem of less space in prisons, is still prevalent today, and doesn’t seem like it will fade away any time
The overrepresentation of men and women of color, and people incarcerated for drug offenses are the effect of some changes that were made in the list forty years. Most of the people who are in prison are in prison for a reason, and that reason is because of sentencing policy. It is worth mentioning the jail and prison is sometimes the answer, however it should not be the answer for some low-level offenders. The recent laws and policy are the reasons why the prison and jail population have increased, and why people stay for longer.
Sentencing and correctional facilities were not insusceptible to the confusion of the times, but also faced additional inconvenience. Sentencing research uncovered major discretion and something unlike anything they have ever seen before, resulting in negative punishments for minorities.

Stonehenge WW-I Memorial, Washington Stonehenge WW-I Memorial was built by the entrepreneur Sam Hill as a homage to the soldiers of Klickitat County, Washington who lost their lives during the World War-I. The designed chosen by him involved replicating the world famous Stonehenge as he was misinformed that Stonehenge was a sacrificial site. However, as far as the replication efforts go Sam Hill’s Stonehenge does not even hold a candle to the aesthetic beauty of the original Stonehenge. Moreover, Sam Hill’s Stonehenge structure (of series of stones joined together) presents a look of abandoned and ruined structure.
A) During the British conquering of Ireland in the 1570s and 1580s, “many English soldiers developed in Ireland a sneering contempt for the ‘savage’ natives, an attitude that they brought with them to the New World.” Such an attitude materialized in the use of “Irish tactics” by the British where “Elizabeth’s troops crushed the Irish uprising with terrible ferocity, inflicting unspeakable atrocities upon the native Irish people.” Indeed, one of such English soldiers included Captain De La Warr, who, unlike his predecessor, Captain John Smith, treated the Native Americans terribly just as he did the Irish, “raid(ing) Indian villages, burn(ing) houses, confiscat(ing) provisions, and torch(ing) cornfields.” Such a Native American policy led to
