22 USHC-2 Revolution and a New Nation American representative government developed during the colonial period as a result of both the ideas of representative government from England and the circumstances of the New World.
23 Development of the colonies The Magna Carta recognized the rights of Englishmen to be consulted on the levying of taxes and to have their rights protected by a jury of their peers.Colonial charters granted by the King included statements declaring that English colonists continued to enjoy the rights of Englishmen.
24 ConflictAfter the 1720s’ the English government followed a policy of salutary neglect, leaving the colonists to govern themselves.It was the change in this policy that riled the colonists into revolt.The cost of the French and Indian War caused Great Britain to change their policy towards the colonies to achieve greater control of their empire and impose taxes to help pay the war debt.
25 Revolution and a New Nation Colonial legislatures were soon in conflict withthe royal governors.The colonial legislatures had the power of the purse. The assemblies had the right to levy taxes and they controlled the governor’s salary.

37 John LockeJohn Locke wrote The Social Contract arguing that man had natural rights to life, liberty and property.Locke also argued that the authority to govern rests on the will of the people.
38 Declaration of Independence Justified the colonies right to rebel against the BritishIt was addressed to those within the colonies who remained loyal to the King or were uncommitted.Listed the grievances against the KingIt made the case that the King, not Parliament,had violated the rights of the people.Be able to identify grievances as indirect causes of the American Revolution.By declaring independence, the Americans made it possible to enter into an alliance with other countries, most notably France.
40 DeclarationThe Declaration made the case that the King, not Parliament, had violated the rights of the colonists.By declaring their independence the Americans could now receive help from other nations.Following the Battle of Saratoga, America began to receive help from France.
41 DeclarationAs a result of help from the French navy, Americans won the battle of Yorktown.The ideas expressed in the Declaration had an impact on the newly formed state governments. States in the North passed laws for the gradual emancipation of slaves. States also provided for freedom of religion.
42 Declaration of Independence The Declaration also had worldwide impact.The French Revolution and revolutions in Latin America was modeled on the American Declaration of Independence.
43 Americans Who were the Whigs? These Americans were also know as Patriots and were opposed to King George III and his policies toward the colonies.Who were the Tories?These Americans were also called Loyalists and believed in remaining loyal to Britain and the King.

49 Articles of Confederation 1781-1789 Established by the Second Continental CongressProvided a government for the country throughout the RevolutionEach state had one vote in a unicameral legislature and there was no separate executive and judicial branch.
51 Weaknesses of the Articles of Confederation A unicameral Congress [9 of 13 votes to pass a law].13 out of 13 to amend.Representatives were frequently absent.Could not tax or raise armies.No executive or judicial branches.
52 Articles of Confederation Helped to guide country through the RevolutionWas able to negotiate the treaty, Treaty of Paris, ending the American RevolutionSettled land disputes between states over territory in the WestLand Ordinance of 1785Northwest Ordinance of 1787-This established criteria for territories to become states and kept slavery out of the Northwest Territory.
55 Article of Confederation Soon after the Revolution, Americans found that the Articles was too weak to meet the needs of the new nation.Could not resolve conflicts between statesCould not solve trade problems with other nationsCould not deal stop rebellions against the government –Shays’s Rebellion
56 ArticlesArticles required unanimous consent of all the states to be amended.
57 Time for a change British broke off trade with Americans Shays’s Rebellion-farmers in Massachusetts marched to close the courts to prevent foreclosures on their farms
59 Purpose of the Constitution The Articles of Confederation was designed to be a weak central government but was not effective.The purpose of the Constitution was to provide a more effective central government while at the same time limiting the power of the government over the states and the people.
60 SovereigntyUnder the Articles of Confederation, sovereignty lay with the states.Under the Constitution the authority to govern derives not from the states but from the people as evidenced by the language, “We the People”

77 John Marshall ( )Appointed by President John Adams (Federalist).
78 John Marshall and the Supreme Court The principals and ideas of the Constitution were strengthened by the decisions of the Marshall Court which established a strong federal government that was supreme over the states.The Marshall Court is an example that presidential power is felt long after the administration is over through presidential appointment of justices who hold political ideas similar to the president’s own.
79 Decisions of the Marshall Court The ruling of the Marshall Court in Marbury v. Madison (1803) began the enduring precedent of judicial review as a vital part of the checks and balances system.This was a landmark decision because it was the first time that the court claimed for itself the right of the judicial review, the right to determine the constitutionality of an act of Congress.
80 Marshall CourtThe Marshall Court continued to strengthen the role of the federal government in other cases. Another case is McCullough v MarylandThe Constitution grants to Congress the powerfor implementing the Constitution’s expresspowers, in order to create a functionalnational government.State action may not impede valid constitutional exercises of power by the national government.
81 Standard 3 Westward Expansion and Growing Sectionalism Prior to the Civil War, westward movement impacted the relations between the regions as Southerners pushed for expansion of slavery and “free-soilers” demanded that slavery be banned in the territories.Railroad construction prior to the Civil War impacted the growing tensions between the regions as Northerners and Southerners vied for routes to the Pacific Ocean.
82 RailroadTranscontinental railroad completed in Build by immigrant labor-Irish and Chinese.In 1893, Historian, Frederick Jackson Turner, advanced the frontier thesis. This was the idea of the importance of the frontier in the shaping of American culture and strong American character.
84 Compromises over slavery and expansion Missouri Compromise (1820)Compromise of 1850Kansas-Nebraska Act (1854)
85 US Land Acquisitions Treaty of Paris-1783 British territory-Appalachian Mountains to Mississippi RiverLouisiana Purchase-1803Purchased from FranceLand from Appalachian Mountains to RockyMountainsFlorida Purchase Treaty-1819 (Adams-Onis Treaty)Acquisition of Florida
86 Land Acquisitions Republic of Texas-1845 Admitted by a joint resolution of CongressOregon Territory/Oregon Country(54-40 or Fight!)Acquired by treaty from Great BritainMexican Cession-1848Acquired as a result of Mexican War
91 “Gone to Texas”Americans were allowed to settle in Mexican territory if the settlers did not bring their slaves. Americans from the South continued to settle and continued to bring their slaves.When the Mexican government passed laws to limit slavery, the Texans revolted.
93 Texas War for Independence 1836 Texas War for Independence/Texas RevolutionTexas independence was not recognized by Mexico.Texas was annexed to the United States by joint resolution of Congress.
94 Mexican War Background The Mexican War and United States argued over the boundary between the two countries.The US said the boundary was the Rio Grande River and Mexico said it was Nueces River.President Polk sends troops to the disputed area. American troops are fired upon. Polk claims “American blood on American soil”.
95 Mexican WarAmerica wins the war and a large area of territory called Mexican Cession.The Mexican War resulted in adversarial relationship between the United States and Mexico until the 20th century.
97 Monroe Doctrine 1823 Issued by President James Monroe Said that the western hemisphere was no longer open for settlementAmerican military power was very limited at this time and the enforcement of the Monroe Doctrine was dependent upon the British navy.

102 Dawes Act 1887 Passed by Congress in 1887 Abolished tribal organizations and divided up reservations for the purpose of allotting land to individual Native American families.The Dawes Act was a failure.
103 Conflict Between the North and South TariffNational BankInternal improvementsExpansionof slaveryNorthSouthWest
105 African Americans Antebellum America African Americans lived in all sections of the country.Although job opportunities for Blacks were better in the North, Blacks were not granted civil or political rights.De facto segregation was practiced throughout the North.
106 As the country expanded westward the issue of the spread of slavery became heated. The admission of new states to the Union threatened to upset the balance of power in Congress between slave and free states.
107 Moving toward War “a fire bell in the night” One of the first efforts at compromise was the Missouri Compromise of Missouri would enter the Union as a slave state and Maine would enter the Union as a free state. All states below the 36 degree 30 minute line would be slave states.
110 Abolitionist Movement The abolitionist movement gained momentum in the 1830s.Among the key members of this movement was William Lloyd Garrison. Garrison was the editor of The Liberator and helped establish the American Anti-Slavery Society.The Liberator was banned in the South.
111 Abolition Most Northerners were not abolitionists. Abolitionists were not popular in the North.Abolitionists helped some slaves to escape through the underground railroad.Important African-American abolitionists were Frederick Douglass and Harriet Tubman.
112 Harriet Beecher StoweAbolitionist, Harriet Beecher Stowe, was successful because her book, Uncle Tom’s Cabin (1852), reached many Northern readers and convinced them of the horrors of slavery.
113 Harriet Beecher Stowe (1811 – 1896) So this is the lady who started the Civil War Abraham Lincoln
114 Uncle Tom’s Cabin 1852 Sold 300,000 copies in the first year. 2 million in a decade!

117 Compromise of 1850 Henry Clay California enters the Union as a free stateA tougher Fugitive Slave law
119 Kansas-Nebraska Act 1854Opened the territories to popular sovereignty.Popular sovereignty would allow the voters to decide the issue of slaveryLed to “Bleeding Kansas” and the Sumner Brooks Affair.
121 Republican Party 1854 Supported the idea of free soil Free soil meant that slavery would not expand into the territories.The Republicans advocated that slavery should not be extended into the territories (free soil) but NOT abolition.
122 Scott v. Sanford/Dred Scott Decision/Ded Scott Case Supreme Court decision-1857Justice Roger Taney (appointed by President Andrew Jackson)Declared the Missouri Compromise unconstitutional.Said that slaves were property and therefore could not be denied to slave owners regardless of where they took their slaves
123 John Brown’s Raid 1859 Radical Abolitionist Martyr to the North Hanged for treason
124 Southern SecessionRepublican candidate, Abraham Lincoln, wins the Presidential election of 1860.Southern states believed that Lincoln would not allow slavery to expand into the territories.Thus the balance of power in the Senate would be upset and Congress would eventually abolish slavery.Eventually 11 southern states seceded from the Union and formed the Confederate States of America.
125 Advantages of the North Greater economic resourcesIndustrial capacityMiles of railroadManpowerNavy
126 Political LeadershipAnother advantage of the North was political leadership. President Lincoln was able to articulate the purpose of the as the preservation of the Union and to retain sufficient public support to continue the fight despite initial military defeats.
127 Advantages of the South Military leadershipGeographyDepended on the power of cotton and their trade with Great BritainThe Northern blockade of Southern ports effectively disrupted this trade throughout the war.
128 Strategy of the North Splitting the South at the Mississippi River and taking the capital at Richmond (AnacondaPlan)
130 Strategy of the SouthTo defend their region until the North tired of the war effort and quitConfederate forces invaded the North twice in an effort to gain foreign support and hasten the end of the war but were repulsed at Antietam and defeated at Gettysburg.
131 Emancipation Proclamation January, 1863 President Lincoln demonstrated his political skills by his handling of the issue of the Emancipation Proclamation.Lincoln issued the Emancipation to change the purpose of the war.By making the goal the liberation of slaves , Lincoln made it impossible for the British to support the Southern cause.
132 Emancipation Proclamation Ended European support for the warCaused internal problems for the SouthAllowed African-Americans to serve in the military (54th Massachusetts)Slavery would be ended by the Thirteenth Amendment (1865).
133 Finding a general who fights Ulysses S. Grant changed the war strategy to total war.General William T. Sherman fought a war of attrition in his “March to the Sea” (Atlanta to Savannah).
135 Important Battles Battle Date Results Bull Run/Manassas 1861 CSA victory.

136 ReconstructionPresidential Reconstruction (Lincoln and Johnson) was to allow the South to return to full participation in the government.Southern legislatures passed the Black Codes and elected former Confederates to office.Radical Reconstruction was controlled by Republicans in Congress. This plan broke the South into five military districts.
137 Reconstruction Amendments 13th- Freed slaves throughout the United States14th- Overturned the Dred Scott decision byrecognizing the citizenship of AfricanAmericans15th –Right to vote for all male citizens(and vote Republican)
140 Reconstruction governments in the South Freedmen were able to exercise the right to vote and to hold elected office.Most Southern governments were not controlled by Freedmen.Carpetbaggers-Republicans who came SouthScalawags-Southerners who worked withNortherners
142 Reconstruction Governments African Americans were elected to the House and Senate, representing Southern states, but no African American was elected governor.The South continued as an agricultural area but now depended on sharecropping rather than slave labor.The election of 1876 led to the withdrawal of federal troops.
143 African AmericansAfter the Civil War, some African Americans moved to the West, such as Exodusters who went to Kansas, however most freedmen stayed in the South.The Freedmen’s Bureau established schools for African American children.No land was permanently given to African Americans (No “forty acres and a mule” happened)

150 Standard 5-Rise of Big Business, Populism, and Progressivism Industrial GrowthHow did corporations evolve?Owned by stock holdersBegan before Civil War but grew after the Civil war with the use of corporate mergers and monopolies.
151 How did government aid industry? Subsidies to railroad and other businessesIncreased immigration which brought in cheap laborHigh protective tariffsExpansion of overseas marketsNo corporate tax or income tax
152 Rags to Riches StoriesHoratio Alger stories of “rags to riches” success provided support for the myth that anyone could make it if they worked hard enough.
153 Captains of IndustrySome businessmen made their money through unethical means.The term applied to them was robber barons.
154 Tycoons of the late 1800sCornelius Vanderbilt made his money in the railroad industry.
156 Tycoons of the late 1800s (Robber Barons) John D. RockefellerMade his millions in oilStandard Oil CompanyFirst trust/monopoly
157 Corporate Giants Andrew Carnegie made his money in the steel industry Carnegie believed that wealthy individuals had an obligation to give back to society. He expressed this in “The Gospel of Wealth”.Carnegie improved his public image by giving money to libraries and universities.
158 Carnegie SteelCarnegie took control of the steel industry using a method called vertical integration.Vertical integration means controlling a product from raw material to finished product.
159 John D. Rockefeller Horizontal Integration This means merging with other companies that make the same product. Eliminate the competition.
160 Social DarwinismCaptains of industry justified their sometimes unethical practices with the ideologies of Social Darwinism and laissez faire capitalism.Social Darwinism meant the “survival of the fittest in business”Laissez faire capitalism meant the government would not regulate business.
161 How did industrialization cause problems for farmers? Children left the land to work in the citiesMechanization increased supply, but farmers overproduced which meant prices fell.Many small farmers were in constant debt.
162 How did farmers try to solve their problems? Tried to organize-The Grange and the Populist PartySupported laws to regulate the railroadsWanted an inflated currency (unlimited coinage of silver)
163 Early attempts by government to regulate industry Sherman Anti-trust Act (1890) was an early attempt to regulate trusts.Interstate Commerce Act (1887) regulated railroads.
164 Populist Party Also called the People’s Party Supported candidates for political officeOmaha Platform-1890Free and unlimited coinage of silverDirect election of SenatorsSecret BallotGraduated income taxGovernment ownership of large industry
165 Election of 1896William Jennings Bryan-Democrat (supported by Populist) (“Cross of Gold Speech”)William McKinley-Republican Party (Front Porch Campaign)Major issue of the campaign:Who should government protect: business or the farmers?
167 Problems of Workers Low pay Long working hours Unsafe working conditionsChild labor
168 Labor Unions Knights of Labor First major labor union Open to all regardless of gender, race or level of skill (both skilled and unskilled)The association of the Knights of Labor with the violence (anarchism) Haymarket Square Riot led to its demise.
170 American Federation of Labor Founded by Samuel Gompers-1886Organized only skilled workersWorked for issues such as higher wages, shorter hours, and better working conditions

176 Theodore RooseveltRoosevelt protected the consumer with his championing of the passage of the Pure Food and Drug Act and the Meat Inspection Act.
177 Woodrow WilsonWilson was also a progressive president. He encouraged Congress to pass the Clayton Anti-Trust Act(which Samuel Gompers called the Magna Carta of Labor). It allowed labor unions to be exempt from anti-trust laws.
178 Woodrow WilsonCongress also passed the 16th (income tax) and 17th (direct election of Senators).During Wilson’s administration the first federal child labor laws act was passed.
179 African American Leaders Booker T. Washington, founder of Tuskegee Institute, advocated vocational training for African Americans.
180 W.E.B. DuBoisW.E.B. DuBois argued that African Americans should have the opportunity for any education that fit their talents and promoted the development of the “Talent Tenth”.
181 End of Progressive Reform Most Progressive initiatives were stopped as a result of World War I.
182 Standard 6 The Rise of Imperialism and Intervention
183 Expansionism of the late 1900s The expansionism of the late 1900s was motivated by the desire to secure markets. It reached beyond the contiguous United States.
184 InterventionThe United States moved from isolationism to interventionism because of a need for raw materials and new markets for the developing industries and expanding capitalism.Social Darwinism also influenced American expansionism.Another factor was the closing of the frontier.
185 Spanish American War-1898 Reasons US declared war on Spain Humanitarian desire to support the rights of Cubans against the SpanishIncreased naval power (Alfred Mahan)Yellow journalism
188 War-1898The direct cause of the war was the explosion of the USS Maine in Hanna harbor.
189 Results of the WarThe United States emerged from the war as a world power.The United States acquired the Philippines, Guam and Puerto Rico.The United States gained control of Cuba.The US faced armed resistance in the Philippines (the Philippine Insurrection).
191 Open Door Policy-1900European countries had special trade relations with China. US Secretary of State, John Hay, released a series of diplomatic notes asking that the US have equal opportunity to trade in China.

197 Causes of the World War I : M.A.I.N. MilitarismASecret AlliancesIImperialismNNationalism
198 World War I ( )At the outbreak of World War I, the United States declared neutrality. But various factors challenged US neutrality and led the involvement of the United States.World War I began in The United States entered in 1917.
199 Reasons US became involved Business interests with the AlliesOur traditional connection with the BritishGerman policy of submarine warfareSinking of the LusitaniaZimmerman notePresident Wilson wanting to make the world “safe for democracy”.
201 Treaty of Versailles-1918Wilson took at leadership role at the Versailles Conference.Wilson wanted a peace based on the Fourteen Points which he hoped would eliminate many of the causes of the war.The other allies did not agree with Wilson and imposed a war guilt clause and reparations payments on Germany.
202 Treaty of VersaillesThe Senate refused to ratify the Treaty of Versailles and did not become a member of the League of Nations.
204 Economic BoomBy the 1920s, electric energy fueled most of American industry which brought hardship to the coal industry.Mass production techniques, such as Henry Ford’s assembly lines introduced in 1913 for the automobile brought radios, refrigerators and other new products to the marketplace.Mass production marginalized the skilled worker (loss of individuality as a worker).
205 FarmersFarmers suffered through an economic depression when World War I brought a loss of markets and surpluses (overproduction) led to low prices and foreclosures.The gap between the ‘haves’ and the ‘have-nots’ increased during the 1920s.
206 Installment PlansInstallment plans encouraged people to change their attitudes about debt. This philosophy (buy now, pay later) stimulated the economy at first, but later proved harmful.
207 Mass Media The mass media advertised goods that many could not afford. The availability of new home appliances(washing machines, electric irons, and vacuum cleaners) led to some social changes for women. Women were able to do their household chores more easily.However, it led to no significant change in their position in the society or the economy.
208 Transportation Transportation helped to change urban life. The automobile changed living conditions and dating patterns for those who could afford to buy a car.Suburbs grew but not a much as in the 1950s.Aviation had little impact on the average American who could not afford to fly.
209 Culture of the 1920sThe migration of African Americans to segregated neighborhoods in the cities of the North and Midwest bought about a cultural renaissance.The Harlem Renaissance brought recognition and pride to Black artists, particularly musicians.
210 LiteratureThe literature of the 1920s rejected the thinking of the WWI era and questioned the materialism of the 1920s.The Lost Generation called American cultural values into question.
211 Art of 1920sArt of the 1920s also reflected the conflict between the traditional and modern world.Georgia O’Keefe revolutionized modern art.
212 Impact of radio and movies What impact did radio and movies have on society?Led to Jazz AgePromoted a shared national cultureAdvertised materialismFostered the resurgence of KKK
213 JazzLouis Armstrong was a noted jazz musician of the time period.
214 MoviesMovies portrayed materialism and racist themes as seen in the popular film “Birth of a Nation” (directed by D.W. Griffith-1915) that fostered a resurgence of the Ku Klux Klan.
215 Social ChangeThe 1920s are often seen as a time of booming prosperity but not everyone experienced this.The social changes that occurred were a result of industrialization, immigration, and urbanization.By the 1920s, more than half of the population live in cities.
216 Palmer Raids-1920sThe Russian Revolution alarmed many Americans. Some feared that such a revolution might occur here.This led to a period called the Red Scare.In the Palmer Raids (Attorney General Mitchell Palmer), the federal government rounded up 4,000 suspected communists who were held without bond (600 were deported).
217 Sacco and Vanzetti (1927)Sacco and Vanzetti were confirmed anarchists and accused of robbing an armored car and killing a guard.Many believed Sacco and Vanzetti were persecuted for their views.Sacco and Vanzetti were found guilty and executed.
