Name:Conor Corcoran ________________________ Equiano & Falconbridge primary source exercise 1) How are Equiano and Falconbridge similar in describing the Middle Passage?

The Middle Passage refers to the part of the trade where Africans, were tightly packed onto ships, and transported to the West Indies from the Atlantic. The voyage took approximately two to four months and, the slaves were chained in rows coffin like to one another on the floor or on shelves. The shelves were less than three feet high; being that almost everyone was above three feet tall, the slaves were not able to sit up. There could be up to more than six hundred enslaved people on each ship. The slaves that were held captive were from different nations and were mixed together; women and children were held separately.
The interminable discussion over ratification was the first national political debate. Even if the ratification of the United States Constitution had been dismissed, this debate gave an opportunity to national political communities to emerge. The same issues concerned men and women in various parts of the country either to refuse the Constitution or to defend it. One of the most important Anti-Federalist assertions was that the United States was clearly too big to be governed by a single government. According to James Madison who wrote in The Federalist: “Hearken not to the unnatural voice which tells you that the people of America, knit together as they are by so many chords of affection, can no longer live together as members of the same
1. Martin Luther King Jr. was one of the chairmen of SCLC since he was one of the founders. He was also the face of the Civil Rights Movement and SNCC did not appreciate the way which SCLC used MLK’s image as a base for their income.

Michael Jones R. Raby HIS 131 11/18/16 Compromise of 1850: Essay The meaning of the Compromise of 1850 was as a package of five separate bills passed by the United States Congress in September 1850, which defused a four-year political confrontation between slave and Free states regarding the status of territories acquired during the Mexican–American War (1846–48). Also I am going to talk about how it was important to the slaves. One of the legislative bills that was passed as part of the Compromise of 1850 was a new version of the Fugitive Slave Act. At first, Henry Clay introduced an omnibus bill covering these measures.
By the Second Great Awakening, the concerns for slavery had increased, which led to the Civil War that ended it. There were a lot of bars, brothels, and jails closed down because they were not needed anymore. The religious movement had a great toll on people and now everyone could be saved and it didn't matter who you were. There was more concern for the poor, handicapped and the mentally ill because they believe everyone perfect or fit to be a human and should be treated like one. There were also more regards to women's rights and participations to more events that would later
Around the world people memorialize great hero’s, express great sorrow for those lost in battle, and celebrate the triumphs that had built the ground and infrastructure from one nation to the next; monuments are constructed to remember our past.

There is a saying ‘Rome was not built in a day’; this expresses the idea that great things take time to evolve and grow properly. America is much like Rome in the sense that over time and thanks to the foreign influences America received, it was able to blossom and still continues to grow. Without the intervention of France and England in America’s land and politics during 1795 to 1810, America would not have been able to thrive on the harsh global scale. Specifically, the political, social and economic events of the XYZ Affair, Alien and Sedition Acts, Louisiana Purchase and the despised Embargo of 1807 became turning points which would decide if America was strong enough to survive as a country.
The Truth and Reconciliation Commission (TRC) was an interracial group established in South Africa after the end of apartheid laws. The Apartheid laws (which were passed under the Afrikaner (Dutch) Government) promoted racial segregation and unethical (sometimes violent) treatment of the nonwhite population of South Africa. The TRC was meant to bridge the divide between races and give justice to the victims of violence from either party in the form of reparations (in most cases symbolic). It also granted amnesty to perpetrators of violent crimes for either apartheid or (occasionally) anti-apartheid violence under the condition that they could prove what they did was politically motivated, told the entire truth of their actions in front of
The Underground Railroad offered a passage to freedom as well as hope for many enslaved people. It was developed in the early 1800s, however, it was primarily used during 1850 through the 1860s.

Escaped slave, Harriet Tubman, was instrumental in assisting numerous slaves travel through the Underground Railroad beginning in 1850.
