Why was Charleston an important city to the South?

Charleston, South Carolina, was an important city for the South during the Civil War because of its position in the war.

The Anti-Imperialist League opposed intervention in Cuba (and elsewhere) because they believed American Imperialism undermined the republican form of government that was enshrined in the U.S. Constitution.

What contributed to the growth of suburbs?

Answer :

The Baby Boom, which occurred after 1946, and the construction of the interstate highway system during the 1950s, greatly contributed to the growth of the suburbs. The term for the growth of suburbs is ”suburban sprawl.” The population explosion created by the Baby Boom created a demand on housing and space and the construction of a comprehensive interstate highway system made traveling between urban centers for work–while maintaining a home in the ”sub”-urban area, easy.


What happened to the first English settlements in North America?

Answer :

The first English settlements in North America were failures, and the settlers either returned to England or died from various causes. One of the earliest English settlements was the Roanoke colony in present-day North Carolina. Sir Walter Raleigh received a charter and brought English settlers to the area in 1585. However, the settlers, along with Raleigh, returned to England in 1586 due to the lack of food. In 1587 Raleigh sent more settlers under the direction of John White. White returned to England for more supplies, leaving the settlers behind. But a lengthy war between England and Spain prevented him from returning.

When White finally returned to Roanoke in 1590, the settlers had all vanished. The only clue to their disappearance was the word CROATOAN carved into the palisade around the settlement. Some possible explanations for the disappearance include the settlers either assimilating or being killed by the Croatan Indian tribe, or the settlers possibly starved from the drought that may have occurred at this time. England attempted other colonies during this time period that did not succeed. The first English colony that succeeds was Jamestown in Virginia, established in 1607.

How did the typewriter affect job opportunities for women?

Answer :

The increased usage of typewriters expanded the number of job opportunities and allowed more women to work in American offices, getting them out of labor-intensive (and sometimes dangerous) jobs like housemaid and factory worker.

The culture of the Plains Indians was changed by

Answer :

Their culture changed drastically in the early 16th century when European newcomers introduced them to the horse. The horse enabled them to travel much faster across greater distances which meant that they could follow and hunt buffalo more easily. Since Buffalo was the main resource, not only for food but also for tents and clothing which were made from its skin, as well as for domestic objects made from its bones, this revolutionized their culture, enabling them to live more securely. By the 18th century, they became full-fledged nomadic horse cultures and the horse became a central symbol of their lives. Aside from being appreciated because of the utility and the lifestyle it made possible, the horse also became a symbol of social prestige and a cultural object, referenced in stories and songs from the time.

With what ecological situation was the dust bowl associated?

Answer :

Residents of the Great Plains were forced to endure strong winds, high temperatures, drought, and deadly dust storms that practically blotted out the sun for days. These dust storms were called ”black blizzards”. This event was brought about by several years of plow-based farming, which caused a substantial loss of topsoil. With the drought conditions and lack of topsoil, the wind erosion of the remaining soil and sand led to the black blizzards. In such conditions, crops could not be grown, and many farm animals died due to the harsh conditions.

The dust storms were so dark and invasive that it decreased visibility to one meter. Reports of the dust came as far as the east coast, where people hundreds of miles away from the storms themselves reported seeing the dust storm clouds. Each year the frequency of the storms increased. In 1932 there were fourteen dust storms. In 1933, there were nearly forty dust storms. Life in the Midwest was inhospitable for many.

Farmers lost their livelihood and many people developed breathing and lung illnesses because of the dust storms. This caused many people to move to find work elsewhere. Many moved west to California.

What was the purpose of the Federalist papers?

Answer :

Writing under the pseudonym ”Publius,” in honor of one of the founders of the Roman Empire, Alexander Hamilton, James Madison, and John Jay wrote eighty-five letters that were published in newspapers in the state of New York. Since nine states had to ratify the new Constitution to make it legal, these letters, which would later be called the Federalist Papers, were written to encourage New York to support this plan.

In the letters that became the Federalist Papers, the three men addressed the concerns that they had heard raised against the proposed Constitution, including the issue of states rights versus federal rights. The Federalist Papers also provide a glance into the original intention behind the Constitution, being written by several of the founding fathers who helped craft it.

While Hamilton, Madison, and Jay all wrote some of the letters, Alexander Hamilton wrote two-thirds of them. He was the driving force behind the project and invited the other two men to join him. Others, like William Duer, did not help write the Federalist Papers, but still defended the Constitution as ”Philo-Publis,” or ”friend of Publis.” The letters seem to have been effective, as the US Constitution was ratified by New Hampshire in 1788, the ninth state to do so. It would become the law of the land in 1789.
