Which text is valuable for gaining context about a historical event but is unreliable as "evidence"?

The correct answer is - historical novel.

The historical novels are very important and valuable assets for the historians to gain context about a certain historical event or to figure out what was the perception of the world and behavior back then.

a. Sought equality In other areas

Following the passage of the 19th Amendment, women wanted to use their suffrage right to pass more laws expanding their rights as citizens.

Though, women had gained the right to vote, there were still many rights they did not have. Rights to their property, marriage, and birth control were still controlled by the government and their husbands. Women were unable to obtain a divorce, get custody of their children, or control their bodies without the consent of their husband or the government. During the 1920s, women's groups continued to work on expanding rights for women to include the Equal Rights Amendment. The amendment did not make it to the Congressional floor until the 1970s only to fail in 1982.

Which of the following does NOT described the period of American imperialism? a. a period of nonaggressive American diplomacy and isolation b. a period of increasing American political and economic influence c. a period in which America sought a global empire to rival the empires of nations such as Great Britain d. a period in which America acquired territory overseas

The correct option is A

Isolationism is a doctrine practiced by the United States during a large part of its history with the objective of not intervening in external affairs that did not pose a real threat to their country. The United States managed to maintain a state of political isolation throughout the 19th century and the first part of the 20th. Few nations have been able to maintain such a position for such a long period of time. Historians argue that it is largely due to geographical reasons, given the physical distance between Europe and the USA. UU The beginning of the twentieth century brought with it problems that occurred in Europe and the Pacific, and this would end in large part with the isolationist feelings of the United States.
