1.As nations in Africa gained independence from colonial powers, some made relatively smooth transitions to self-rule while others experienced violence and upheaval. In some nations, the violence continues even today. What might have been done to help those nations transition to self-rule peacefully? Write a short essay that sets forth ideas on ways that violence and civil war might have been prevented.

I think, it's really hard to diminish the violent behavior in the current generation. The only way for African people to prevent violence and civil war is to create a strong law enforcement within the government and impose heavy punishment to the violent groups. Then, they should start to improve the quality of education to develop the young minds of Africa so they became a better generation than their previous one.

Hope this helps

A weakness of Congress under the Articles of Confederation was that it could not A.) conduct diplomacy. B.) print or issue currency. C.) collect taxes. D.) declare war.


The correct answer is C. A weakness of Congress under the Articles of Confederation was that it could not collect taxes.


The Articles of Confederation constituted the first government document of the United States of America. They were approved by the Second Continental Congress on November 15, 1777, after several months of debate. It was a non-binding guideline until its ratification four years later, on March 1, 1781.

The Articles supported the Continental Army and allowed the thirteen states to form a united front before the European powers. However, as a tool to build an effective government in times of war, it was a failure. Congress could make decisions, but did not have the power to apply them. Perhaps, the biggest setback was the requirement of unanimous approval of the 13 States to modify the articles. At the same time, the most important power that Congress lacked was the power to collect taxes: it could only request money from the States. These, for their part, did not always comply with the demands and Congress did not have the necessary funds for its operation.

How did Jackson solve the issue of states' rights? A: He lowered federal tariffs but affirmed his power to use the military to collect them. B: He allowed the Southern states to ignore the federal laws with which they disagreed. C: He allowed South Carolina to secede from the Union. D: He invaded South Carolina and forced John Calhoun out of office.

The correct answer is A) He lowered federal tariffs but affirmed his power to use the military to collect them.

The states rights issue referred to in the question dealt with the Tariff of "Abominations." This name of the tariff, given to by Southern politicians, showed their distain for this tax on foreign goods. This is due to the fact that many Southerners made significant profits through trading with other countries.

Some Southerners went as far as to nullify this tariff. Nullification is a process in which a state ignores a federal law or ruling because they believe it is unconstitutional. This resulted in controversy between Northerners, Southerners, and the president (Andrew Jackson). Ultimately the tariff was lowered but Jackson reinforced the idea that the federal government still has control over the states, especially when it comes to following federal laws.

What offers the BEST reasoning behind william t. sherman's strategy of using "total war " to defeat the south?

The correct answer is C) the destruction of Georgia would be so complete that it would break the Confederacy's will to continue fighting.

The BEST reasoning behind William T. Sherman's strategy of using "total war " to defeat the south was "the destruction of Georgia would be so complete that it would break the Confederacy's will to continue fighting."

That was his goal with the Total War. The Union had to win the war at any cost, so he decided to led his troops in November 1864 from Atlanta to Savanah, Georgia. It was an army of approximately 60,000 soldiers. Sherman wanted to create fear in the people of Georgia, so he and his men steal food and burned crops to force the people to stop supporting the Confederates. With this total war concept, Georgia was completely destroyed and indeed the people from the state were afraid.

The other options of the question were A) the strategy of "total war " was needed to stop the confederates from trading with France and England. B) Sherman's men wanted revenge from the horrifying treatment of Union soldiers in Andersonville prison camp. D) the invasion of Georgia would lead to an armed revolt by the slaves, which in turn would help the Union to win the war.
