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.

What type of representation would the states have under the Virginia plan

The Virginia Plan wanted representation proportional to the population of the state. It proposed a bicameral legislature (I think. Don't remember. It's been a long time!) in which states got seats in both houses based on how large their population was.

The way it's easy to remember is that Virginia was the biggest state in the country at the time, so naturally they thought the state with the biggest population should have the most votes!

Write an essay about the Greek scientist Make sure your essay includes an introduction with a thesis statement, supporting paragraphs, and a conclusion that summarizes your ideas.

      Natural philosophy, being the precursor to modern day science, was greatly developed in ancient Greece. Like other ancient societies and cultures, the Greeks believed that the world around them was the result of divine intervention (The Ionian Philosophers, 3). Therefore, they based early Greek science around their polytheistic religion in an attempt to answer questions about the world they lived in. However, unlike other religions, their religion wasn't nearly as stringent as others. The Greeks practiced a religion which allowed for free scientific thought. This gave way to the great natural philosophers and scholars. These men, including Thales of Miletus, Aristotle, Democritus, and Pythagoras, among many others, used the scientific method to explain the physical world around them. The use of these sciences was employed in the fields of mathematics, medicine, astronomy and biology in order to improve aspects of Greek life. It also helped to dominate the Mediterranean Sea region, which would be a forerunner to the Roman Empire that borrowed heavily from Greek culture.
             The scientific method was used by Greek philosophers in order to hypothesize and theorize about the natural world around them. However, the first research that was done was incoherent and could not be proved. Many philosophers made up information in order to try and prove their theories, but this did not work since there was no proof. It took many years for the scientific method to be perfected and valid. To this day, the scientific method from ancient Greece has had a major impact on scientific thought. The father of this study was a man named Thales of Miletus (Violatti). He was the first person who tried to explain what he saw in the natural world around him (The Ionian Philosophers, 7). Thales formulated knowledge about the physical world around him rather than relying on the supernatural explanations of the world that the Greek mythical religion supplie

QUESTION POSTED AT 16/02/2020 - 12:08 AM

Which was not part of the treaty of Guadalupe-Hidalgo that ended the mexican-American war in 1848

From the choices shown in comments, the item NOT part of the treaty ending the Mexican-American War:

  • B. The Nueces River became the border between Mexico and Texas.

Explanation:

When the USA annexed Texas as a state in 1845, the border between the US and Mexico became a matter of dispute and, ultimately, a cause for war.  Mexico claimed that the border between Texas (as part of US) and Mexico was the Nueces River.  The United States, on the other hand, said the border was the Rio Grande, further south than the Nueces.  

When the war ended with the US victorious, the Treaty of Guadalupe-Hidalgo assigned the Rio Grand as the border, from its mouth at the Gulf of Mexico to the point where it reached New Mexico.  (From there the border was assigned according to geographic lines on maps.)

As far as the $15 million payment from the US to Mexico, that was in compensation for the large amounts of territory taken over by the US.  $15 million in 1848 would equal about $420 million in today's dollars.

The Mexican Cession was territory ceded (meaning given up) to the United States in 1848 after the Mexican-American War.  The territory included lands that represent the full states of California, Nevada, and Utah, as well as large portions of  Arizona and New Mexico, and about a quarter of what would become the state of Colorado.  There was also a small section of Wyoming involved.  So that represents the bulk of territory that is in Southwest of the present United States.
