This marked strain of racism within Stanton’s rhetoric for women’s suffrage can be exemplified by quotation from a letter of hers to the editor of the National Slavery Standard. In this letter, Stanton claimed that “the representative women of the nation” had done their best to free “the negro”, but “as the celestial gate to civil rights is slowly moving on its hinges, it becomes a serious question whether [the representative women of the nation] had better stand aside and see ‘Sambo’ walk into the kingdom first .” Sambo was used as a derogatory term for African American
In Document I, it states Serbia’s reason for war, “The war between Serbia and Austria...is inevitable. If Serbia wants to live in honor, she can only do this by war. This war is determined by our obligation from the duty of our race which will not permit itself to be assimilated.” This quote comes from a newspaper that is ran by Colonel Dragutin Dimitrijevic, head of Serbian Military Intelligence and founder of the secret society “The Black Hand”, the ones responsible for the assassination of Archduke Franz Ferdinand. This document states that the reason that they are going to war is because it is inevitable, it is tradition and culture, and because it is their duty.
The Civil War has had a significant impact in history for the nation today. It reconstructed our ideas about our freedom and equality. The Civil war was a very devastating time during the mid 1800’s.

War broke out in 1914 due to forces that had been building up in Europe for years. While the Allies blamed Germany for the war too harshly, its actions certainly did directly contribute to World War I, as did those of Austria Hungary. However, each country involved fostered militarism in their country, and became in entrenched in the web of alliances and race for imperial power, all causes of the environment that led to the Great War. Therefore, it could be said that all European countries were responsible, in part, for World War I, as reflected in Documents 5, 6, and 7.

Throughout history Americans have experienced many turning points that have influenced political and social change. Two turning points that influenced political and social change were the Women’s Suffrage Movement and the Civil Rights Movement. The Women’s Suffrage Movement’s main goal was to finally give women the right to vote. The Women’s Suffrage Movement can be compared to Prohibition, another movement that influenced change, because both began do to the status of women in the United States, and resulted in a social change in the societal view of woman. The Civil Rights Movement’s effects can be compared to the Civil War, a war fought between the North and the South over the issue of slavery, because both resulted in a change in the social and political status of African Americans.
The overall purpose of my poster is to get people to purchase liberty bonds. Liberty bonds were war bonds issued by the united states during World War I. The purpose falls into the category of financing the war and also enforcing loyalty. Financing the war could be done by personal investments or donating money, so by purchasing liberty bonds it raised money to finance military operations. Liberty Bonds also gave people the opportunity to contribute to the war effort.
The 1840s was the beginning of many reforms towards society. The Second Great Awakening created various religions based on the belief on how a person should live their lives. This lead to the Antebellum Era, the beginning of the revival in America.

Women wanted equality between sexes because the fourteenth amendment gave all white males the right to vote.
In America during the 1920s, there were many positive and negative aspects of living in it. First, I will start with women. In the book when it says, “Wilson made an unprecedented appearance before the Senate to urge ratification of the Nineteenth Amendment, which banned sexual discrimination in voting.” The right to vote in the United States was permanent, however finally giving women the right to vote in elections. During World War I, President Wilson promoted democracy contentiously, but this anti-democratic elimination of women’s rights went against his plan, so he promoted suffrage as a “vitally necessary war measure,” so Wilson pushed for suffrage and after 143 years, women became equal members in the political process.
Six well-bred women stood before a judge in the Washington D.C. police court on June 27, 1917. Not thieves, not drunks, not prostitutes, like the usual attendants there. They included a university student, an author of nursing books, a prominent campaign organizer, and 2 former school teachers. All were educated accomplished and unacquainted with criminal activity, but on that day they stood in a court of law with their alleged offense, “Obstructing traffic”. What they had actually done was stand quietly in front of the White House holding banners, urging president Woodrow Wilson to add one sentence to the constitution: “The right of citizens of the United States to vote shall not be denied or abridged by the United States or by any account of sex”.
Our History Day topic is The Women’s Suffrage Movement in 1848 through 1920. We chose this topic because it fits the theme well and it is a deeply significant piece of history. It was ended because of the ratification of Nineteenth Amendment in 1920. Despite not knowing much about the suffrage in the beginning, both of us were interested in the topic. We decided on creating a website together, and began gathering resources.
Another example of Americans becoming freer was women’s suffrage. Women’s suffrage is the right for women to vote in elections. The fight for women’s right to vote was nearly a 100 year battle. Many events took place to get to the 19th Amendment such as; in 1849 California became the first state to extend property rights to women, the first National Women’s Rights convention was in 1850, in 1866 the American Equal Rights Association was formed, in 1887 the first vote on women’s suffrage was taken to the Senate and then defeated, starting in 1890 the Progressive Era began and women entered pubic life, and finally the 19th Amendment was passed in 1919 and by 1920 women had complete voting rights. Women’s right to vote is an example of freedom
