The thirteenth, fourteenth, and fifteenth amendments reflected the growing 19th century American trend of a) granting universal manhood suffrage b) upholding rights of free speech and religion c) decreasing the power of the federal government d) recognizing the basic civil liberties of all races

Answer:

d) recognizing the basic civil liberties of all races

Explanation:

The thirteenth, fourteenth, and fifteenth amendments, also called the Reconstruction Amendments, were a series of legislation that aimed at recognizing the basic liberties of all race, more specifically of African Americans, who had been harshly discriminated and mistreated for decades. In theory, the amendment progressively recognized them as equal humans beings to White Americans, by prohibiting slavery, declaring that all person born or naturalized in the U.S. were citizen, which included African Americans, and by guaranteeing their right to vote. In practice, however, African American would still have a long way to go to gain fully equality.

Answer:

The Election that birthed the modern American politics is the election of 1828. Which is also termed as the "Ugly Election" in the history of American politics.

Explanation:

Now coming to the answer we have:

  1. Ans- option D: Adam was accused of a "Corrupt Bargain".As many believed that he promised Henry Clay a place in the new system before election. And surprisingly Clay was nominated as the secretary of state by the government.
  2. Ans- option A- Andrew Jackson was a war hero and he had a vision to create a modern and civilized system of the state. The common man(white people) supported him not just because he supported individual liberty, but he also made different policies which made it clear for the native Americans to migrate from some regions in the states.
  3. Ans -option C: False Propaganda system first started in the campaign of 1828 elections. Andrew Jackson was accused of dueling and gambling. Along with that John Quincy Adams was accused of "corrupt barging". So there was a new way to campaign but a negative one.  
  4. Ans- option A:  Andre Jackson was not against any federal bank but the Second Bank of the United States, had a government sponsored monopoly, as it lacked the congressional sight over its business. Along with that the bank had unusual economic and political powers.  Andre Jackson in September, 1833 he used his executive and democratic powers to remove all the federal funds from the bank.
  5. option-C: As the issue raised was between the U.S. state of South Carolina and the federal government at that time it was due to the enforcement of tariff rules. As the campaign started by a politician named as John C.Calhoun, who opposed the federal imposition of federal tariff rules and regulation on the states. So, in November 1832 the U.S. state of South Carolina adopted the Ordinance of Nullification (was Constitutionally correct) and declared all the federally imposed tariff laws null and non-binding in the state.

Lesson 14: The Legislative Branch Unit Test American Government Foundations A Unit 2: The Legislative Branch

Answer:

In the United States of America, the legislative branch is in the hands of Congress.

The United States Congress is the supreme holder of the legislative branch in America. Its seat is located in the Capitol, in Washington DC.

The Congress consists of two chambers: the Senate and the House of Representatives.  Both the senators and the representatives are directly elected. Each of the 435 representatives in the House represent a congressional district and is elected for a two-year term. The districts and seats are divided among the states on the basis of the population determined in the most recent census. In addition, the House has six non-voting members, five from US overseas territories and one from the District of Columbia. Unlike the House, the number of senators per state is the same regardless of the population. Every state is represented by two senators. They are elected for a term of six years. The election of senators is arranged in such a way that about a third of the seats are renewed every two years.
