Which of the following items could serve as a primary source for a historian studying the American Civil War? A. A journal written by a Civil War soldier describing a major battle B. A map of important Civil War battles printed in a military history textbook C. A documentary film describing important Civil War generals D. An essay about Civil War soldiers written by a modern graduate student

[ad_1]

Answered by answersmine AT 22/10/2019 – 02:51 AM

The correct option is A.
There are two basic sources which an author can draw from when writing an article. The first one is primary source and this refers to an account of an event or history by a person who actually witness the event or the person who experience the event directly. The second one is secondary source and it refers to those accounts of events that are drawn from primary sources.
Thus, a journal account about civil war by a civil war soldier who experienced the war is considered a primary source.

Which religious group is credited with being the first American abolitionist group? A) The Quakers B) The Baptists C) The Methodists D) The Presbyterians

[ad_1]

Answer:

The correct answer is A. The religious group that was credited with being the first American abolitionist group was The Quakers.

Explanation:

The Quakers are a religious movement founded in England, where they were persecuted for opposing the Puritanism of Oliver Cromwell.

They found a space of religious freedom in the United States, in Rhode Island, where religious tolerance had been decreed. William Penn (1644-1718), who was a Quaker, founded the Pennsylvania colony with money in payment of debts to his family.

Quakers rejected slavery since its appearance in England. They were the first to condemn it in the United States, even before the Declaration of Independence.

When the architects of our republic wrote the magnificent words of the Constitution and the Declaration of Independence, they were signing a promissory note to which every American was to fall heir. This note was a promise that all men, yes, black men as well as white men, would be guaranteed the "unalienable Rights of Life, Liberty, and the pursuit of Happiness." It is obvious today that America has defaulted on this promissory note insofar as her citizens of color are concerned. Instead of honoring this sacred obligation, America has given the Negro people a bad check, a check which has come back marked "insufficient funds."

Which act by the British government caused the american colonists to write the declaration of independence and separate from great Britain? A) the destruction of a ship containing a load of British tea. B) the killing of several colonists by a group of British soldiers. C) the outlawing of slavery in all the american colonies. D) the requirement that the colonists pay taxes on British goods.

[ad_1]

The right answer is “D) the requirement that the colonists pay taxes on British goods.”

The historic event known as the Boston Tea Party occurred on December 16, 1773 in the city of the same name, in the United States. The action was a protest carried out by the settlers of the country against the high taxes levied by the British government. The incident is considered a key event in the unfolding of the American Revolution.

The men who participated in the protest were imitated in many other cities of the country and ended up being known as the first heroes of the movement for the independence of the United States. After the revolt, the English government severely punished the inhabitants of Boston, closing the port of the city. Three years later, 13 colonies declared independence and founded the United States of America.

The MOST important way in which the Greeks influenced American democracy way by allowing

[ad_1]

The most important way in which the Greek influenced American democracy way was by allowing citizens to participate in government.

American took a clue from ancient Greek political system, which is democracy. It allowed all Athenians except women to take part in the political process, although in the United States both men and women are allowed to participate in American Democracy.

Further Explanation

After the United States got independence from England in 1776, the founders had the opportunity to choose how they will govern themselves. It was a very difficult task and for guardians, the founders looked for difference philosophies and examples of government throughout the world.

The democratic system of government of ancient Greece greatly influenced how the founding fathers came about the democracy practiced today in the United States.  

Before independence, the east coast was divided into 13 separate colonies. The founding fathers didn’t dissolve these colonies into colonial boundaries; rather it was divided into states. The founders dissolve the colonies into states so that each region would be governed at the local level and with the scope of national government, which will have power over all the state. In the United States, states actually looked like ancient Greek community structure known as polis or city-state.  

A polis is made up of urban centers including the land that surround it. Its development is also similar to how major cities and states capital in the United States were structured including rural areas surrounding each state.

The Reformation actually started after Columbus’s landing in North America. 

Treaty of Tordesillas in 1494 was forced on Spain and Portugal by the Pope. The Pope basically said that all lands in the New World belonged to Spain and all new non-Christian lands in the Eastern Hemisphere belong to Portugal. No other Catholic countries can do anything in those areas without the approval of the owner. 

The pope basically drew two lines on the globe setting the border. The western line started at the north pole cut half way through Greenland and ended at the south pole. The new world was everything to the west. Problem is that it ran through a chunk of Brazil which is why Brazil is an ex-Portuguese colony. 

The Eastern line starts at the North Pole runs through siberia, through the pacific just west of Japan, and cuts Australia in half. Of course, Australia hadn’t been discovered yet. Everything to the the east of this line is the new world. 

Obviously, this treaty didn’t hold up well, but the reformation gave the protestant countries an excuse to explore the new world since they didn’t have to take orders from the Pope. Even so, France, a catholic country, ignored it too. 

Really, the only country that was effected by the reformation in the exploration of the Americas was England. All the other countries, changed their religion once and then went to war with the nearest catholic country. Sweden became Lutheran and stayed that way. The Dutch Republic became Calvinists and stayed that way. 

England kept switching. First it was Catholic. Then, Henry VIII made it protestant. Then, Henry’s daughter Mary I made it catholic again. Henry’s other daughter Elizabeth I (with the two hit movies) made it Protestant again. 

Years latter, Oliver Cromwell over through the monarchy, executed the King Charles I, and established a Protestant fundamentalist religious military dictatorship. He outlawed drinking,smoking, gambling, theater, dirty books, sports, prostitution, and anything generally fun. He would have made Saudi Arabia proud. Basically, all you could do is work, pray, and die. Sex was allowed for creating children, but you couldn’t enjoy it. 

When Cromwell died, the people of England said enough was enough and brought back the King. Charles II kicked out the fundamentalists and brought back drinking, smoking, gambling, dirty books, sports, prostitution, and having fun during sex. Incidentally, those were also all his hobbies. 

This brings us to the famous Pilgrims. They were part of Cromwell’s crowd. They kept agitating a return to the no-fun policy. They annoyed everybody. They weren’t persecuted for practicing their religion, they were persecuted because they kept trying to force their religion on everyone else. Sort of like Southern Baptists. 

Charles II was the most easy going monarch in British history. Do realize how annoying you have to be to get him to throw you out. 

Charles’s brother James II was obsessed with turning Great Britain catholic again. After four years of trying, they kicked him and his followers out.

[ad_1]

Answer:

C) Nations begin to rely on each other for things they cannot produce themselves.

Explanation:

Globalization can lead to interdependence among nations. One of the most common ways in which this happens is through free trade. When two countries trade, they exchange goods and services. If the relationship is long and stable enough, the population can come to rely on the other country’s goods, which might not be produced in their country, or might be produced at a much higher price.
