The North had huge advantages in troops and equipment. The generals threw both of these, in huge quantities, at the South. It was not uncommon for the North to lose 3-4 times as many soldiers in a battle as the South lost, but still be able to claim victory. The goal was to wear down the South by shear force of numbers.
Nevertheless, some historians argue that, despite the overwhelming advantages enjoyed by the North, the outcome of the war hinged on one critical battle - Gettysburg. If the...

In the 1940's and 1950's a massive strike of paranoia struck the US after
The Second World War. This scare included millions of people being blacklisted
and wrongfully accused of being communist sympathizers. Hollywood was

American Activities Committee, and singled-out as propagandists and red
sympathizers. The mass paranoia and state of chaos was only fed when a man

I have chosen to speak for myself on this issue where I am being accused of certain “un-American” activities. I must tell you these so called “un-american” activities being bestowed on me are completely false. I am quite simply a screen writer. Since nineteen forty-eight, I have been writing for NBC. To this day, I am one of the screenwriters behind the anthology “Studio One” which airs on CBS. I moved to New York from Oklahoma with dreams of being a well-known screen writter and possibly becomi...

Jackson's followers who created the party were also "for the people." Such ideals were shown throughout various times within the period. The democrats were essentially guardians of the United States Constitution and, similarly, were protectors of individual liberties. In addition to this, the Jacksonian Democrats promo...

Unfortunately, it was Montresor who achieved his merciless plans, which were presented at any given time. Adaptation in and out of a world in which one only works in, involved several evidences of disadvantages. For example, The Cask of Amontillado written by Edgar Allan Poe revealed one m...

Pure capitalism is characterized by private ownership of resources and by reliance on markets, in which buyers and sellers come together and determine what quantities of goods and resources are sold and at what price. Here no central authority oversees production and consumption. Rather, economic decisions are coordinated by the actions of large numbers of consumers and producers, each operating in his or her own self-interest. Because property is privately owned, it can be used in whatever mann...
It’s important to me to have somewhere where I can temporarily shut my worries away. I am then able to focus on something that in the long run might achieve something really positive.
Besides spending times with their families, some persons have an impulse to do a certain activity and they focus their attention and energy on the accomplishment of that “project”. That is what happens when one has a HOBBY!
The problem here is actually having the time for an ‘enjoyable’ hobby, sure, I could d...
