- From the beginnings of the United States as a nation, northern states and southern states arranged a series of compromises in efforts to negotiate differing positions on slavery, different economic structures, and different cultures. In the end, though, none of the compromises allowed the two sides to avoid war. Indicate three distinct compromises the North and South made between the late 1700s and the mid-1800s amid efforts to negotiate their differences. Be specific in describing each compromise, what it entailed, and why both sides deemed it acceptable at the time of its enactment. Then, indicate why each compromise failed. For each compromise, explain what specifically about the compromise proved unworkable as a solution for brokering the differences between the North and the South.
- Amid social changes and social reform movements occurring in the mid-1800s, backlash against other groups developed prominently among White, especially White Anglo Saxon, males. This happened perhaps most notably in the brief development and existence of the Know Nothing Party. Describe the major characteristics and positions of the Know Nothing Party. Then, identify and explain four additional distinct examples of specific actions, policies, and/or attitudes from the mid-1800s that demonstrate Anglo Saxon White male backlash against other groups of individuals. Be clear in specifically describing each example and in explaining how each example shows elements of Anglo Saxon White male backlash.
- Every war in United States history has faced opposition by at least some elements of the United States public. The Civil War was no exception. Indicate one major argument northerners voiced in opposition to going to war and one major argument southerners voiced in opposition to going to war. Be clear and specific in explaining each of these arguments. Then, consider the statement by the course text about the Civil War that “there was much truth in the accusation that the war on both sides was a rich man’s war but a poor man’s fight” (438). Explain how the reasons for going to war for both the North and the South largely reflected issues of concern for the rich and not the poor. Be sure to show how this occurred for both the North and the South. Then, describe factors that led the poor to become involved in the war. Again, show how this occurred for both the North and the South.
- Map out the general pattern the Civil War followed. In doing so, indicate at least four distinct stages into which you can separate time periods within the war. Provide a name for each stage based on a common theme within the stage, describe what specifically occurred within each stage, and explain the basis for the separations you have created. For each stage, explain how what occurred within the stage fits the common theme around which you have named the stage. Also, be clear in indicating what distinguishes each stage from the other three stages.
- The course text states, “The Reconstruction era would be divisive, leaving a mixed legacy of human gains and losses” (458). To demonstrate this, indicate three different groups whose interests played roles in the development of the Reconstruction period after the Civil War. Clearly identify each group and explain how the process of Reconstruction accounted for the interests of each group. Then, indicate three distinct issues that caused division during Reconstruction. Clearly identify each issue and explain specifically how it caused division. Finally, show gains and losses from Reconstruction by indicating two distinct beneficial consequences of the process of Reconstruction and two distinct harmful consequences of the process of Reconstruction. Be clear in identifying each consequence and explaining why it was beneficial or harmful.
