In many aspects,slavery dominated the south, the southerners often denied it, stating that cotton was the one who dominated that region. The southern part of the country produced cotton, millions of pounds, but also produced tobacco, rice, and sugar. The ones who had the task of the hard labor producing these crops were the slaves, but were also forced to do a vast variety of other tasks including cleaning, sailing boats, building houses, managing the labor of their fellow slaves, and even have sexual intercourse with their masters. The about to be mentioned documents express the tension that was granted for slavery between whites and blacks.
James Henry Hammond ,was the governor of the state of South Carolina. as well as a slave owner. He wrote the “Letter to an English Abolitionist” in order to argue that slavery was good, and man should not fight it, in other words, he believes slaves should remain slaves, and masters should remain masters. Hammond said that there was nothing that could be done against slavery, and that it was similar to a disease, poverty, or deformity. He also states that slavery has been part of human nature and is actually acceptable, the southerners did what they believed was God’s Will. Hammond believed that Thomas Jefferson's statement “all men are created equal” was not right at all, because there have never existed a society without a variety of classes.
White masters often had sexual relationships with their women slaves. One of the most notorious was Thomas Jefferson who engaged in sexual intercourse with Sally Hemings multiple times.
Sally Hemings went to France with Jefferson (where Jefferson got her pregnant), she was a free woman who did not wanted to return but her master convinced her of returning to Virginia telling her she would receive many privileges, including the freedom of her children at the age of 21.

...Cheyenne Savoie April 11, 2013 HIST 203 The Pullman Strike The Pullman Strike started on May 11, 1894. It was a conflict that was going on all across the nation. It included the American Railroad Union (ARU) and other railroads that occurred in America at that time. Beginning in a town called Pullman Illinois, with over four thousand employees that worked for the Pullman Palace Car Company. The strike started because the employees were upset with their current changes in reducing their pay. George Pullman was the president of the Pullman Palace Car Company. He designed the passenger railroad car, which included comfortable seats as well as sleeping cars for people to travel. He also takes credit for creating the “model” community of Pullman, Illinois. In 1894 there was a depression that led to the Pullman Palace Car Company cutting wages to almost forty percent, and lay off tons of workers. As the workers got more and more angry as bad things kept happening in this depression, they decided to join the ARU and start a strike against George Pullman as he decided to not increase his wages. Throughout the strike there were two major newspapers that kept up with the recent gossip and incidents that were occurring. The Chicago Times supported the union, and the Chicago Tribune opposed the ARU boycott. During the time of the strike both newspapers differed in regards to the violence that was happening, while the Chicago Tribune was focusing on the violence of the...

...World War II Through the 1970’s Stephen Lundert Dr. Mel Albin HIS 105 Contemporary US History Strayer University 2 June 2013 This is the Baby Boom Generation. The period runs from the beginning of WWII thought the end of the 1960’s. The Vietnam War period was a very tumultuous period for the United States and a counterculture was created. This was also a period of great social unrest. The economic upturn that began at the end of WWII came to an end. The US participated in 3 wars; World War II, Korea, and Vietnam during this period. Women and minorities continued to make advances and even had some victories in the Civil Rights arena. There were several major tuning points that occurred during this time period but, I selected WWII and the Cold War because I believe they had the greatest impact. The first turning point to be discussed will be World War II. The war prompted a tremendous mobilization of America Resources, at a level not seen since the Civil War. The American Economy ramped up from that of the low-production Great Depression years to the most powerful economy in the world. The economy showed the most remarkable improvement, Wartime mobilization boosted production, increased demand for labor, and rescues the economy from the depression. World War II initiated the most significant federal management of the economy in American history. When the war began, President Roosevelt implemented the War Production Board (WPB) to steer the economy......

...HIST 1301 11/25/2013 Title: Clark, Victor S. “The Influence of Manufactures Upon Political Sentiment in the United States From 1820 to 1860.” The American Historical Review, 22 (October 1916): 58-64. Purpose: Victor S. Clark outlines the economic influences of the expansion of manufactures upon the political sentiment in America before the Civil War. He discusses the role of political institutions in the shaping of our economic progress, with the intent to show that the rise in manufactures in the United States during this time brought a stronger form of centralized government that would favor an increase in public intervention of the ecomic activities of individuals. Ultimately he encourages us to believe this was one of the main causes for Civil War in the US during this time. Summary: In the few decades before the Civil War, many Americans relied primarily on the household goods they could produce or acquire locally. Without the need for regulation of these small items, sentiment in the United States leaned towards the idea that people could manage these tasks on their own. However, after the revolution these attitudes began to change with the rise in manufactures and the expansion towards the south. Crops such as tobacco, sugar, and cotton were just a few of the commodities that people in the US and overseas desired for. Inevitably, this caused people to rethink where power should lie to maintain the idea that equality existed among the entire population. From start...

...HIST 330 A Woman’s Place Anne Hutchinson lived during the colonial period of American history and during this period Puritan women lived under feme covert. Although women lived under feme covert, Puritans believed that there should be great love and respect in marriages with no domestic abuse. Ideal Puritan women were known as goodwives who were the backbone to their home and marriage, however Puritans did not convey equality among genders. According to historian Ellen Carol DuBois, “In the 1630s, leaders faced a major controversy regarding both religious orthodoxy and gender assumptions”(TWE, 73). This controversy left women like Anne Hutchinson in the middle of gender oppression and silenced opinions since women were not allowed to challenge male authority or offer their own biblical interpretations. Anne Hutchinson was a midwife and the daughter of a preacher, she was was described as “a woman of haughty and fierce carriage, of a nimble wit and active spirit, and a very voluble tongue, more bold than a man…”(Reader, 5). She was a woman who challenged the idea that women were not allowed to voice their opinions about religion. Allegations of heresy were conducted against her after she was convicted of holding formal religious meetings in her home that also contested the status of women. While on trial she asked the court if there was a rule against her teaching since before she arrived there were such meetings previously held. She also gave an example of scripture......

...death of more than 600,000 Americans. In the article the writer explains how history had been written to dominate our historical understanding of the Civil war. The reason for the civil war without doubt was slavery, yet the defeated Southerners defended the incident by claiming that it was a war for the “states’ rights” (Article). This was the Myth of the Lost Cause in which defeated Southerners molded the truth in self defense (Class notes). This demonstrates the psyche of white Southerners that they were in a stage of denial; thus, they decided to distort the history to gain their dignity back. This sheds light on the fact of the issue that historians tend to add their personal opinions when they are writing. History is supposed to give us a detailed account of what happened without personal beliefs or opinions. Everyone has a different interpretation of events and incidents, but the history pages should only include facts. They manipulated the pages of history in self-defense to make the future generation’s believe that the war was fought not because of slavery but the states’ rights. A few historians even came out and defended the inhumane act of slavery, historian Ulrich B. Phillip stated that it was a worse deal for slaveholders as compared to slaves because slaveholders had to care for their slaves long even after they could work (Article). Statements like these breed denial and also the possibility of such events in future. Instead of denouncing slavery for the......

Scientists analysed the image statistically and found that the HDF had seen back to the very young Universe where the bulk of the galaxies had not, as yet, had time to form stars. 9) Data Table and/or Results (use additional pages if needed): Deep imagery from Hubble, has revealed the most distant galaxies ever observed. The time it has taken their light to reach us, some of the galaxies are seen just as they were just half a billion years after the Big Bang. The idea orginated from images taken in 1993 after the repair of the Hubble, the image contained many galaxies that were not able to be seen by conventional ground telescopes. These very remote galaxies also seemed to be smaller and more irregular than those nearer to us. This was taken as a clear indication that galaxies form by gravitational coalescence of smaller parts. 10) Evidence-based Conclusion Statement: Arches Cluster is the densest known star cluster located in the Milky Way, Arches Cluster is located about 25,000 light years away from earth in the constellation of Sagittarius close to the heart of the Milky Way.
