warm up 11/30/11 1. Define Reconstruction. 2. What did Congress want to do regarding the freed slaves after the Civil War?
President Andrew Johnson Impeached
Equality for Freed Slaves?? After he became President, it quickly became clear that Johnson would block efforts to force Southern states to guarantee full equality for former slaves. The stage was set for a showdown with Congress, who viewed African American voting rights as crucial to their power base in the South.
Reconstruction During the first 8 months of his term, Johnson pushed through his own policies for Reconstruction. He handed out thousands of pardons and allowed the South to set up "black codes," which essentially maintained slavery under another name. When Congress came back into session, Republicans moved to stop the President.
Stopping the President In 1866, Congress passed the Freedmen's Bureau Bill. (act of the Radical Republicans) Congress also passed the 14 th Amendment to the Constitution, authorizing the federal government to protect the rights of all citizens. (act of the Radical Republicans)
With your partner, create the following chart: freedmens bureau extended civil rights act passed 5 military districts wanted former slaves to have rights wanted to reshape the South added the 14 th Amendment Goals & effect of Johnsons Plan Goals & effect of Radical Republicans Plan Goals & effect of Lincolns Plan
Impeaching President Johnson Congress passed the Tenure of Office Act which stripped the President of the power to remove federal officials without the Senate's approval. In direct opposition to the act, he fired Secretary of War Stanton. Congress then voted to impeach Johnson by a vote of 126 to 47 in February 1868.
Impeach – put a government official on trial Only 2 presidents have been impeached... –Andrew Johnson –Bill Clinton Charges brought in the House, trial held in the Senate Both were found _____________ and allowed to finish their terms. NOT GUILTY
Impeaching the President Citing his violation of the Tenure of Office Act and charging that he had brought disgrace and ridicule on Congress, an impeachment trial was held. By a margin of one vote, the Senate voted not to convict Johnson, and he served the rest of the term
Johnsons Legacy Some would say that Andrew Johnson is largely viewed as the worst possible person to have been President at the end of the Civil War. He utterly failed to make a satisfying and just peace in the United States.
What If..? How different would America have been had Lincoln lived to see the country through the critical period of Reconstruction? Argue that this statement is true… In the end, Johnson did more to extend the period of national strife and trouble than to heal the wounds of war.

12/5/11 Quick Write about the article about women driving in Saudi Arabia.
Saudi report: Women driving spurs premarital sex Dec. 3, :32 PM Associated Press RIYADH, Saudi Arabia -- A report given to a high- level advisory group in Saudi Arabia claims that allowing women in the kingdom to drive could encourage premarital sex, a rights activist said Saturday. The ultraconservative stance suggests increasing pressure on King Abdullah to retain the kingdom's male-only driving rules despite international criticism. Rights activist Waleed Abu Alkhair said the document was sent to the all-male Shura Council, which advises the monarchy. The report by Kamal Subhi claims that allowing women to drive will threaten the country's traditions of virgin brides, he said. The suggestion is that driving will allow greater mixing of genders and could promote sex.
Saudi women have staged several protests defying the driving ban. The king has already promised some reforms, including allowing women to vote in municipal elections in There was no official criticism or commentary on the scholar's views, and it was unclear whether they were solicited by the Shura Council or submitted independently. But social media sites were flooded with speculation that Saudi's traditional- minded clerics and others will fight hard against social changes suggested by the 87-year-old Abdullah. Saudi's ruling family, which oversees Islam's holiest sites, draws its authority from the backing of the kingdom's religious establishment, which follows a strict brand of Islam known as Wahhabism. While Abdullah has pushed for some changes on women's rights, he is cautious not to push too hard against the clerics. In October, Saudi Arabia named a new heir to the throne, Prince Nayef, who is a former interior minister and considered to hold traditionalist views, although he had led crackdowns against suspected Islamic extremists. His selection appeared to embolden the ultraconservative clerics to challenge any sweeping social reforms.
"It's because of our oil. Oil is the engine of the world's economy so the world looks the other way when it comes to human rights abuses in Saudi. If it wasn't for our oil, the authorities would never get away with arresting people and keeping them locked up for months over nothing." Saudi Arabia provides 20 percent of the world's oil.
Truck Driver Photograph by Jodi Cobb Bedouin women veil their faces more strictly than city dwellers but enjoy greater freedom of dress and movement. Besides managing the family tent, some have even taken to driving the tribes water truck. Driving is a privilege denied women in the city. From Women of Saudi Arabia, October 1987, National Geographic magazine
Woman and Children, Jiddah Photograph by Jodi Cobb Popularized by the elite of seventh-century Arabia, the facial veil and head covering worn by a woman on the beach at Jiddah contrast with youngsters' colorful dresses. Veiling became fashionable during the lifetime of the Prophet Muhammad, perhaps in imitation of his many wives, who covered themselves in public at his request.
Why is America Still Allied with Saudi Arabia? – by Phyllis Chesler The Saudi mutawas (morality police) are terrifying. Like vultures, they swoop down on their vulnerable prey, especially women, and then send them straight to Hell. The long beards curse and beat their female prisoner, totally terrify her; then, they throw her into a dark, medieval dungeon, (assume the worst here). They remove her only in order to gang-rape and torture herall presumably in the name of Islam. Her crime? In one instance, although the woman was a foreign national, she dared to take a taxi downtown without a male escort. Can we find no oil elsewhere, no other sources of energy? Do Americans really understand what goes on in Saudi Arabia? Does anyone remember that 15 of the 19 9/11 hijackers came from Saudi Arabia? Or that Osama bin Laden is a Saudi? Do we not understand that the Kingdom has funded bin Laden?
