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.

Why was America’s victory at Yorktown among the most significant battles of the American Revolution?

[ad_1]

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.

Well I live in Florida so; I can explain tourism has always had a large role in our history. During our development, tourism gave us the much needed boost in economy that we needed to get on our feet. People coming from all over to enjoy the oranges and warm sun and beaches was a large source of income for people all over. More people to boy products = a larger income. The ‘boom and bust’ is what im guessing was the time right before the stock market crashed. Americans were richer then ever, they took more vacations, they generally thought of themselves having a brighter economic future, which caused more spending, more vacations, more extravagance. This made Florida truly flourish for a time, becoming a hotspot for wealthy vacation homes. The Great Depression almost killed us.. many buisness owners had come to depend on tourism to make a living wage, but since the great depression loomed over everyone, no one took vacations. No one had extra money to spend. Many of those wealthy vacation homes went into foreclosure. The Floridian Economy tanked during this time, so bad we even feel ripple effects of it today, even though we have built up so much more.

The correct answer is B. Inexperience & lack of preparation

Explanation:

To begin with, the word apprehension refers to a strong feeling of fear or anxiety usually related to excessive worry about something going wrong or one making mistakes. This feeling occurs in different situations including communication in which the speaker is anxious about a presentation or speech, usually because she or he is afraid of committing mistakes or being negatively judged by the audience. Additionally, in the case of communication apprehension, there are different factors that influence it including the communicative situation, the audience, the context, the expertise of the speaker and the preparation of the presentation.

In the case presented, in which Jane spent little time working on the presentation, it is possible she experiences apprehension feelings as she does not have experience in giving presentations, which means she does not feel confident and she is more prompt to making mistakes. Also, her anxiety levels might increase as she did not prepare the presentation properly and therefore she might not be ready to deliver it. Thus, Jane is likely to feel apprehensive due to her inexperience and lack of preparation.

Tommy, in an effort to maintain clowning’s positive roots, invite dancers to weekly performance battles. How should the sentence above be rewritten to correct the subject-verb agreement error?

[ad_1]

Here we can observe that the verb used doesn’t reflect the correct tense to express when this action took/is taking/will take place. There are many tenses where you could choose from, depending of the time of action:

Tenses: Simple, Progressive, Perfect, Perfect progressive
Times: Past, Present, and Future

Imagine all the combinations!

The simplest example we could make is if this action is a routine that happens continuously, the action verb (invite) is changed to simple present for the third person of singular (invites): 

Tommy, in an effort to maintain clowning’s positive roots, invites dancers to weekly performance battles.

Why was americas victory at Yorktown amount the most significant battles of the American revolution

[ad_1]

Answer:

The responsible for creating the Native American reservation system was Andrew Jackson.

Explanation:

The approval of the Indian Removal Act in 1830, during the presidency of Andrew Jackson, marked the systematization of a federal policy aimed at forcibly transferring native populations away from white-populated areas.

An example was the Five Civilized Tribes, who were deported from their native lands to the southern United States and transferred to today’s Oklahoma, in a mass migration that became known as the Trail of Tears. Some of the lands that were given to these tribes to live in, following deportations, eventually became Indian reservations.

In 1851, the Congress approved the Indian Appropriations Act, which authorized the creation of Indian reserves in today’s Oklahoma. Relations between the settlers and the natives had become worse as the settlers illegally occupied territory and natural resources in the West.

Why might it be fair to say that neither side won the battles of the Somme or Verdun?

[ad_1]

Answer:

The Battle of Gettysburg was fought between July 1 and 3, 1863, around the town of Gettysburg, Pennsylvania. It was the battle with more casualties in the United States, which is considered the turning point of the Civil War along with the Vicksburg site; and that, in addition, marked the beginning of the Union offensive, it was a great victory for the Federal Army and a disastrous event for the Confederation.

In the third day of the battle, General Lee was looking for a weak spot in General Meade’s extensive defensive line, located on the outskirts of Gettysburg, Pennsylvania.  His intention was to defeat the federal forces, which would have granted the Confederate Army a clear path to Washington.

Lee thought he saw a weak spot in Cemetery Ridge, a depression in the field, where two roads met and there led the charge of much of his infantry to break the defenses and concentrate the penetration of the southern army there. However, Meade, in the council of war that remained the previous night, predicted the movement of his adversary and took the measures of the case, and the Confederate troops failed to weaken the defenses of federal troops.

This unfortunate charge went down in history as The Pickett Charge.
