A thesis statement is a thing at the beginning of an essay or paper and I think it sums up the cause and effect, mostly effect of something. Or it states the conclusion of the reason why your writing.

Glory II

The men of the 54th regiment were gonna be used only for manual labor. The supply guy was holding back on shoes and supplies because he didn't want to give them to African Americans. And the 54th regiment was expected to not fight. When they got their first chance for action they were put into some sketchy deal we're they raided houses and burned towns. Eventually they got their chance for the kind of fight into they wanted through, hand to hand and opposing forces, left Thomas injured.

This dude put together the first all African American infantry during they civil war. He was baffled at the contrast between other soliders compared to these ones. They were more disciplined and passive when needed.  But the government issued a warming to it's soldiers that if you, as a black man, and your commander are captured on confederate soil; you should be killed or put into servitude.the leader dude gave them a choice to leave and all of his soldiers stayed.

The difference between the north and the south. The main factor of the civil war was slavery.  The only upper hand the confederates had were better generals.

civil war inevitability

The civil war was a product of  layers of controversy and  united affairs. The country was split and most of the state vs state and congressional outlines were built around or involving slavery. If you got rid of it or kept it, someone wasn't happy. The wavering of emotions and opposing beliefs pushed people to pick a side. And usually when there is a separation of people, conflict will arise. In this case the civil war, which again, is a product of too many people with too many ideas separating themselves from people they think are wrong trying to make it right. When people believe in something as prevalent as slavery or politics; they may not be so fickle in changing their point of view. So even though the civil war was set on its neighbors soil, it was really just people fighting for and over what they believe in and what they want for themselves, what they feel is the right way of things. Which hasn't really changed, nor will it ever; for history always repeats itself. The civil war was completely inevitable, eventually the period in time and the peoples way of thinking would've sparked something sooner or later.

Really the only difference is that the declaration of sentiments states the negligence of men toward the obligated rights of women, whereas the the declaration of independence and spoke of natural rights and freedom.  The way Jefferson applied life liberty and the pursuit of happiness to men and property owners; they appointed to women.

Julius Caesar and Andrew Jackson

Julius Caesar was a tyrant and the dictator of Rome. He was intertwined with the events that led up to the fall of the Roman Empire. He got far  with reforms and building the roman republic up with eminent ambition and tenacity.
I see how a correlation between Caesar and such leaders as Andrew Jackson could be made. They had passion in their eyes and a fire under their butts, so to speak. They both did their own thing, they got things done their own way, and in the end leaving a pretty significant mark in our textbooks.

Andrew Jackson

He carries the characteristics of how he was as an adult from his childhood. He was an orphan by the time he was a pre tween and his detest for the British government was substantial enough to lead his whole career. As a young man he fell in love with the already married daughter of a prominent family and they ran away together. Talk of this past event would hinder his run in office for presidency later on. He gave up on politics once and went on to his passion of horses, drinking, and money. But he couldn't stay away too long, he eventually ran for president and had his name on some of the most prominent events in history. Leaving in his stead, the most controversial presidency in American history.

The colonist believed in this superficial thing of Manifest Destiny. Manifest destiny is the belief that god has appointed them the land of the north. It's a "god given right" to cultivate the land.
In other words, the people believed the land was theirs and the lords and they were born to run over it. This meant they spent no time regarding the native people or land that was there to begin with.

Market Revolution

The rise of modern day industry, factories, and the migration of people. The market revolution consist of business expansion and evolution. It birthed the rise of factories and and a desire for the the average working man. People moved from small farms and cropping to more concentrated areas and working in warehouses. Incidentally, the pay was utterly inadequate for the working conditions they endured. The market revolution changed how goods and products were imported and exported and sold and made. The demographic of workers and cities and stuff changed.
The age of machines and factories paved the way for uprising cities and economics itself. It was the beginning of forever essentially in changing the ways of  people and business and the economy. It literally moved a nation, it moved people, it changed history and gave a new outlook of how money and goods could be distributed and manufactured .

Manifest destiny is the belief that God appointed the people to expand and live in North America.
It's the belief that the land was chosen and allotted to them by such god.
Its really superficial.

English captain, John Mason, burned and massacred the majority of the Pequot Indian tribe. He went in and originally planned to kill the Indians and steal from them. But they underestimated the natives and opted to trap and burn them within their homes. Nearly all of the population of these people perished and the remaining few were sold into slavery.

The first amendment consists of the freedom of  speech and press and the ability to practice any religion a person can. It's the amendment that allows me to anotate about literally everything. It's one of the most prominate of the amendments. The ability to speak out and express myself in itself is revolutionary. The chance For religious freedom and tolerance of all types is so,et g the people have fought for and I get to live it. And since I'm fickle, the second amendment cannot go unnoticed. The second amendment, stating the right for people to bear arms and entitlement to the same weaponry as their government is both good and bad. It's controversial in the fact that since all people have this opportunity to such weapons, all people will get them for all different reasons, to all different extents.   These amendments were written in a time of history substantially different than how the world is now, so boundaries of them can be pushed and pulled all types of ways. It's an eneivatbility that people will use and abuse the amendments, and push the line just enough to were it's still justified to be okay. But not all people, because again, these are some of the most important of the amendments. The right to self-expression and protective ( or recreational) weaponry aren't just at the top of the list for no reason.

Checks and balances is a cooperative system set throughout the three branches of government. It allows one level to review and revise another levels decision. If one level has a proposition of some sort, it will go through the other ones to make the best outcome.
Checks and balences is the most efficient thing the government can do. It forces all branches of government to find a medium, and enforces communication throughout the people.

The health care system is divided between republicans, democrats, and the people. People can pay up to $14,000 in health care insurance and get close to nothing covered in return. Pre-existing illnesses and children are not always covered either.
The people who need coverage the most are paying the most and aren't getting covered. The main problem is that the people are torn between the fact that everyone should be able to receive health care and the fact that if people cannot afford it; who's tax dollars are paying for it.

Layer cake federalism is when a certain amount of  powers are listed for the government. It states the division of powers throughout the government. Decisions making, laws and policy's are up to more than one authoritative figure. Whereas marble cake federalism is where all levels of government have their hands in the pot, making decisions.
Layer cake federalism is more efficient. Too many people with opposing opinions making decisions will not get anywhere.

Being for England, federalist is a type of elitist. They support international trade and a strong federal government. Anti-federalist believe in a weak government and are for the French.
Neither one is perfect, but a compromise may be plausible.

The legislative, judicial and executive branches are the three different levels that make up the government. Before the legislative branch was like it was now, the principals of this level was split between New Jersey and Virginia. They made a compromise and suggested two senators per state. The executive branch puts laws into place and has the ability to veto them. The judicial branch is part of the court system.
Three branches of government that divide the responsibility and decision making of this country is totally efficient.

During the revolutionary war, the winning of a battle between each side was pretty even. The battle of Lexington and Concord was the first battle, and the battle of Yorktown was the last.

After the revolutionary war rights changed for slaves and Native Americans. The government separated the church from state, and the north and south established their distinguished sides. Although states North of Maryland got rid of slavery, it still progressed.
A lot changed after the war, people started really thinking about things and wanting to see change. The counter was finally getting somewhere. But, like every state, country, or government, not everyone may be up for it.

The English had a hold on some of the major cities and colonies on the country side. The colonist had an advantage over the British because they new the land better and they developed new military tactics. Like the guerrilla tactics, in which they would fire at opposing forces and flee the scene. The last battle of the revolutionary war was the battle of York Town. The French helped the Americans which eventually led to their own revolution and slavery wasn't really affected a lot. 
The revolutionary war was where america finally became america.

The Declaration of Independence in simplest terms is about the people and their entitlement to natural rights the obligation to overthrow a government of it doesn't honor that. It's about finding the path to life, liberty, and happiness without the conflicted interest of an unfair government. The government has been ruling unfairly and unjustly, and the people are tired of it.
This document was controversial in the way that nobody in that time thought like that. There was only a handful of  prominent freethinkers that actually made a difference, in a era of  a biased author active goverment. Revolutionary ideas like these place the stepping stones for everything.

Using the ancestors app I found that my great grandmother was mostly Italian and lived there for a few years until she moved to America. I also discovered that my grandfather was drafted in 1953 and sent the Germany to fight in the Korean War, as it was coming to an end.
My fathers side of the family is the side I really want to find more stuff about.

The French Indian War lasted from1754-1763 and consisted of the French , British, and Native American allies. Territorial expansion and militarization sparked cause togo the war. 9 years later, after the war, the English got land in the west but drew back after Indian attacks. Soon after, the Indians then attacked a British fort and the proclamation of 1763 came about. This proclamation then stated that the colonist were not allowed in the Appalachian mountains.
The French and Indian war is just another war

My family tree on my mothers side consist of Italian and Welsh, and German. On my fathers side, my grandmother was from England, and my grandfather was also German. Also the former   Czechoslovakia (Czech Republic) is in there somewhere but I forget which side.

Yesterday; the first English  colony was Jamestown. They came over to make money and find religious  freedom

Last week we learned about the Europeans and their want for expansion and exploration. In the 1400's the Europe was controlled by the Roman Catholic Church. The church had authority over politics and kept the hold on religion; until reformation and the renaissance era sparked new ideas and a push for religious freedom. The separation  between Protestant and Catholics divided the people in half and caused Europe to have to rebuild there nation. Economical and political recuperation made the desire for exploration even more prominate.  
 I'm almost positive that if new age ideas didn't  pushed the boundaries for religion, Europe would've taken even longer to expand. But they're greedy and authoritative so it's an inevitability they will take advantage of what they will discover.
