    In 1643, there were four New England colonies who formed a confederation and they came up with the Articles of Confederation. In 1697, William Penn brought forth a plan of union which never was implemented. Last but not least in 1754, Benjamin Franklin came up with the Albany Plan of Union. “The history of colonial efforts to cooperate or unite demonstrates that the colonies had no strong or sustainable need for a common government.” All of those plans never went into effect but that doesn't mean that they didn't want to unite. In the following paragraphs I'm going to state why I think this statement is wrong by using documents A, B, and C.…

    The Civil War was a hard and long fought war with many battles, deaths, and injuries. In 1861 the Civil War began, but not before a series of events that reached the boiling point of both Northerners and Southerners. Three events that inflamed tensions between the North and South included the Compromise of 1850, the publishment of “Uncle Tom’s Cabin,” and the election of 1860. The Civil War lasted about 4 years, and that was because the North and South had differing opinions on slavery.…

    Expansion to foreign nations was a very important factor in America during the early twentieth century. Self-interest and idealism play large roles in America’s foreign policies from 1895-1920. Although both factors were very common, idealism seems to have been the dominant factor during this time period towards foreign affairs. Speakers such as Senator Albert Beveridge and William Sumner were very important because they gave valuable information to people about foreign policies in the late 1800s and early 1900s.…

    The Albany Plan of Union, which was drafted by Benjamin Franklin and the governor of Massachusetts Thomas Hutchinson, was a proposal to unite the thirteen colonies in preparation of a war with France. The proposal was drafted during a meeting with the native leaders, colonial officials, and representatives from the seven British colonies. This meeting was called the Albany Congress because they all met in Albany in the spring of 1754. The meeting had two focal points. The first was to ally with the Iroquois. Before this the Iroquois had a better relationship with the French. This was until the 1740s. During Albany Congress the Iroquois Indians were bribed with supplies and weapons to ally with the colonies. The other point of this meeting was the Albany Plan of Union. It called for a new government, a person who had powers of the relationships with the natives, and a grand council was also made. The plan was approved unanimously by every delegate at the Albany Congress but when it was presented to the colonists it never passed.

    The Civil War was the bloodiest war the United States has ever fought - killing over 620,000 Americans and causing more destruction than any other war. Long standing conflicts and disagreements made the violent war seem inevitable years before it happened, and led to it becoming a major turning point in US history. Americans have struggled with sectionalism since the colonial days, as seen in the issue of slavery and states rights, and the passing of documents and compromises such as the Articles of Confederation in an attempt to unify the colonies. During the period around the Civil War, the universal idea of manifest destiny reignited sectionalism between states because of arguments over whether to admit new lands in the West as slave or…
