- The Bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki
History must be learned and understood so past events do not happen again. The bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki are these types of events. By the time Truman took office, Japan was nearly defeated. There were people in the Japanese government trying to find a way to end the war. However many believed the Japanese would fight to the bitter end. This is the same thing many Americans would do if people landed on our coast to fight. Our government did not want this war to be drawn out and we ...

- The Assyrian Empire

- World War I
Most thought that the war was not their problem it was a foreign problem, and they had no reason to enter it. People were fine living their lives and wanted to keep the peace they had. And President Woodrow wanted to maintain an isolationist/neutral policy. That would not last long soon they would enter the war. The war came about when countries wanted to conquer land for themselves. So they used aggressive action on other countries. The United States wanted to stay neutral but the Germans bui...

- Slavery in the South
By 1830 slavery was primarily located in the South, where it existed in many different forms. African Americans were enslaved on small farms, large plantations, in cities and towns, inside homes, out in the fields, and in industry and transportation.
Though slavery had such a wide variety of faces, the underlying concepts were always the same. Slaves were considered property, and they were property because they were black. Their status as property was enforced by violence -- actual or threate...
Totalitarianism in the Soviet Union, Italy, and Germany (by the way, all my essays are not very in depth because we have to write 2-3 600 word essays every week!) A totalitarian government is a modern autocratic regime in which the state controls all phases of society. It not only seeks to control the economical and political aspects of society, but also tries to direct the daily lives of its citizens. Totalitarianism strives to influence the attitudes, beliefs, and opinions of its people throug...
