Which was not a reason Johnson used when vetoing the extension of the Freedmen's Bureau and the Civil Rights Bill of 1866? Johnson said the measures "favored" blacks over whites and was outside the bounds of the Constitution in doing so. Johnson said the measures were invalid because Southern states weren't represented in Congress during the vote. Johnson said providing social services for indigents via the Freedman's Bureau was outside the powers delineated in the Constitution. Johnson said the rights and guarantees of the Emancipation Proclamation were sufficient to protect blacks civil rights and a new bill was unnecessary.

Read the excerpt from Chapter 5 of Wheels of Change. These traits led commentators to worry that the differences between the sexes were being blurred, a fear that was reinforced as the four newest states—Wyoming, Colorado, Utah, and Idaho—granted women the right to vote in the 1890s. Would the bicycle help bring about a new kind of equality between men and women? Elizabeth Cady Stanton and her colleagues certainly hoped so. At any rate, the image of a female cyclist quickly became associated with efforts to win more rights for women. What conclusion does Macy draw in this synthesis of ideas? Women were granted the right to vote in four states as a direct result of the bicycle’s invention. Female cyclists were quickly becoming associated with efforts to win more rights for women. Stanton and her colleagues hoped women cyclists would join their fight for women’s rights. Wyoming, Colorado, Utah, and Idaho were home to the highest percentage of women cyclists.

Female cyclists were quickly becoming associated with efforts to win more rights for women. At the end of the passage, usually where a conclusion is stated, it says that the image of a female cyclist was becoming a symbol for women’s rights. The passage does not tell the reader anything …

Read the excerpt from President Eisenhower’s State of the Union address on February 2, 1953. A cardinal ideal in this heritage we cherish is the equality of rights of all citizens of every race and color and creed. We know that discrimination against minorities persists despite our allegiance to this ideal. Such discrimination—confined to no one section of the Nation—is but the outward testimony to the persistence of distrust and of fear in the hearts of men. This fact makes all the more vital the fighting of these wrongs by each individual, in every station of life, in his every deed . . . I propose to use whatever authority exists in the office of the President to end segregation in the District of Columbia, including the Federal Government, and any segregation in the Armed Forces. What is the president’s purpose for including these details? to inform his listeners about laws in the District of Columbia to inform his listeners about the work of the US military to persuade his listeners of the importance of equal rights to persuade his listeners to vote for him for president

Which excerpt from “Ain’t I a Woman?” best refutes the anti-suffragist idea that women were too fragile to handle the right to vote? Then that little man in black there, he says women can’t have as much rights as men, ’cause Christ wasn’t a woman! That man over there says that women need to be helped into carriages, and lifted over ditches, and to have the best place everywhere. Well, children, where there is so much racket there must be something out of kilter. I have ploughed and planted, and gathered into barns, and no man could head me!
