I believe that the results of Reconstruction have been mixed and i believe that the economy is a problem that needs to be fixed. By not dictating who can have what job based on their race Reconstruction can meet its goal of creating equality for all. During Reconstruction, Americans had very different opinions about the government. In the northern states, most people believed that since the South had seceded before they had to keep an eye on them.
The articles of confederation was written right after the revolutionary war was fought, however, the AOC failed, so they had to start all over with a new document called the constitution. 9 out of 13 colonies needed to ratify the new constitution for it to take effect. When it came to organize the government after the AOC, the people were divided on how the government should handle the fears of social, political, and economic fears which motivated the 2 parties, federalist and antifederalist. The federalists supported the new constitution, while the anti federalists were opposed. The political motivation for the federalists to support the ratification was they believed that a stronger government was necessary as the AOC had failed previously
Throughout the period of the Reconstruction, the northerners and southerners viewed and treated blacks differently. For example, the southerners did not have any respect for blacks at this time and treated them terribly. The Southern Black Codes were significant in defining the rights of the freedmen and many of the rights were restricted due to these specific codes. The codes prevented blacks from achieving their own occupation, from voting, and the codes limited any freedom that the individual may have. The blacks had no rights as a citizen due to the southern rules.
Divine right had been around for decades, but the war completely changed everything. That shows the revolutionary war was truly revolutionary because the whole concept of a republic was foreign to the people, but yet they did it as they realized they wanted to have a say not listen to what the king has to
The war was declared not by all Americans, but those at the top of the social class. The wealthy people or the Continental Congress wanted independence from Britain but at the same time keep the structure of their current society. However, there are some people that took this independent very seriously, such as in the Declaration of Independence where the line quotes “all men are created equal,” most people are fighting to make America more of a democratic country. Lastly, the video asked some famous historian asking whether the think the American Revolution is revolutionary and most people believed it is
Today you can voice your opinion and write what you believe. However there once was a law in place that went against that freedom. It was called the Sedition Act, it went against the first amendment of the United States constitution, and it turned the political parties against each other. It caused many people to become angry because their freedom to talk and express their opinion had be taken away. The reason I request for its repel is because it was a violation of the first amendment, turned political parties against each other, and because the only reason the Sedition Act was made was because of the president’s wife.
He believed that things would never truly be equal due to the color line, or as he referred to it, “the veil”. Despite American’s efforts to assist slaves in the transition to a free black American citizen, they just did not feel accepted. The Freedmen’s Bureau was set up in hopes that this would ease the transition but it didn’t help. This relates back to “the veil” the Du Bois refers to. The veil represents the African American’s feelings of inequality and inability to mesh with the white American citizens.
Beginning with different train cars to separate race, Homer Plessy sat in a car that was for whites only. He was challenged and harassed by the conductor, then later arrested for breaking the law. The majority vote was that they could not put the races together. It wasn 't until later that the segregation under state law was ended, but the judgment wasn 't an immediate response for Plessy.
During the late 1800s, women made it clear that they wanted their equal rights. Women had no power compared to what men had. If women started looking like they had power, it was said that they started to look more masculine. Women began to fight back and attempt to reform the government. In this political cartoon, the artist shows his view of life before and after women were able to vote.
Certain laws are unfair that's why people should protest, Rosa Parks is one of many women who believed she and every other African American should be treated equal. Rosa was tired of being told what to do just because she was a different color so she stood up for herself and refused to move from her seat for a white man, because of her actions she was arrested on December 1, 1955. “Even before Parks's
(Hughes) This speaks of how the black person felt they were still being treated and how they were continually being treated specially during the Civil Rights Movement of the 60’s. Unfortunately, today black people are not treated much better and still have to face prejudice. There is a parallel how the blacks were viewed as subservient, much like the soldiers were in Catch-22. Blacks and the soldiers were both told what to do and did not have the freedom to go wherever they wanted to without fear of punishment.
They thought the true reason for the Great Britain had fought this war is because the Great Britain wants to expand it colonies in America and increase its wealth. But more importantly, American colonists think the Britain Parliament was elected by British who living in Britain, so these member of the Parliament won’t understand what the colonists need. Since these member of the Parliament cannot represent the American Colonists, they have no right to imposing taxes. In the year 1774, the Boston tea party occurred leads all American Colonists begin to
Things begin to change around 1760s, when British parliament passed series of laws without the consultation of American people. The one such law in this series was Stamp act. The Stamp act was passed in 1765. Americans found this tax to be unconstitutional and disturbing because they believed that no freeman could be forced to pay the tax without his permission. Even Benjamin Franklin personally requested the British parliament to relook the
One time the British passed a law that allowed the british soldiers to forcefully live in the colonists’ home! The colonies started out to benefit Great Britain, but after one war and lots of laws, the colonies were going to be part of a revolution. What was the American Revolution about?

Shay’s Rebellion “What country before ever existed without a rebellion?” a quote from Jefferson in document C. Throughout the history of the United States many conflicts and protests have occurred. One of these was Shay’s rebellion and it was caused by the government not paying war veterans their money after fighting in the war. This made the protesters threaten the court that they are going to raid the armory and many people consider them rebels for this. Although many people thought the farmers or war veterans were rebels, nevertheless they are truly freedom fighters because they stood up for what was right, kept the government aware of needs, and were not treated fairly.
