Read Abraham Lincoln's Letter to fellow Republican James T. Hale. In this letter, President Lincoln suggests a compromise with the South’s demands to keep the Union from falling apart. Confidential. Hon. J. T. Hale Springfield, Ill. Jan'y. 11th 1861. My dear Sir—Yours of the 6th is received. I answer it only because I fear you would misconstrue my silence. What is our present condition? We have just carried an election on principles fairly stated to the people. Now we are told in advance, the government shall be broken up, unless we surrender to those we have beaten, before we take the offices. In this they are either attempting to play upon us, or they are in dead earnest. Either way, if we surrender, it is the end of us, and of the government. They will repeat the experiment upon us ad libitum. A year will not pass, till we shall have to take Cuba as a condition upon which they will stay in the Union. They now have the Constitution, under which we have lived over seventy years, and acts of Congress of their own framing, with no prospect of their being changed; and they can never have a more shallow pretext for breaking up the government, or extorting a compromise, than now. There is, in my judgment, but one compromise which would really settle the slavery question, and that would be a prohibition against acquiring any more territory. Yours very truly, A. LINCOLN. Which words best describe Abraham Lincoln's tone in the letter?

I would say that Lincoln is indignant in his tone and considering the date in 1861 it apparently was just before the civil war took place (1861-1865) so he is basically saying that he will not budge on his opposition to the South's gaining more political power or territory.

What should a writer do to revise an argumentative essay? Check all that apply. remove any personal statements make sure the tone is objective make the writing more informal develop an opinion or position check the supporting details

An argumentative essay is a piece of text in which the writer expresses an opinion and tries to convince the readers of his/her idea.

Even though the writer includes his opinion, the writer should always remove any personal statments (option 1). The purpose is to convince the audience of something, not to make them relate to the writer.

Moreover, the writer should make sure the tone is objective (option 2). The writer wants to convince the audience through facts and the truth behind his/her ideas despite his/her own beliefs.

As I said before, in an argumentative essay, writers must develop an opinion or position (option 4). Writers usuallly are in favor or against something and try to persuade the readers to agree with them.

Finally, writers must always check the supporting details (option 5). The supporting details are paramount to convince the audience because if there is faulty reasoning or the details are not true, the writer's opinion is immediately considered faulty or wrong as well.

QUESTION POSTED AT 17/10/2019 - 07:56 AM

Which statement BEST describes John Locke’s argument against the “divine right of kings” theory of government? A. Kings cannot have divine right because they are not officially part of the church. B. There is no scientific evidence supporting the existence of a divine right of kings. C. Divine right can only be claimed by those who afford basic rights to the people they rule. D. While kings have a divine right to rule, they are responsible for providing basic rights to their subjects.

Correct answer: B. There is no scientific evidence supporting the existence of a divine right of kings.

Explanation/details:

John Locke favored the idea of a "social contract."  According to his view, a government's power to govern comes from the consent of the people themselves -- those who are to be governed.  This was a change from the previous ideas of "divine right monarchy" -- that a king ruled because God appointed him to be the ruler.  

Locke repudiated the views of divine right monarchy in his First Treatise on Civil Government.   Locke took aim at the arguments of a particular divine right monarchy theorist, Robert Filmer, who traced authority to rule back to Adam, the first man created by God.  Locke gave logical rebuttal to show that if that if that were so, then there should only be one true heir in the world today that would rule by divine right as the one king over the whole world.  (Locke also presented other reasoned arguments against divine right theory, but that's one example of how his thinking proceeded.)

In his Second Treatise on Civil Government, Locke argued for the rights of the people to create their own governments according to their own desires and for the sake of protecting their own life, liberty, and property.

The American founding fathers read Locke (as well as other Enlightenment writers).  The American Revolution (1775-1783) was inspired by ideas such as those of Locke.  Also the French Revolution (1789-1799) took cues from the political philosophy of John Locke, overthrowing the unwanted monarchy of Louis XVI.

President Jefferson's Secretary of State 7. sold the Louisiana Territory to the United States 8. explored the Louisiana Territory and points west 9. President Jefferson's Secretary of the Treasury 10. a Federalist judge who wanted his commission granted 11. won the Battle of New Orleans against the British 12. bought an empire instead of a city John C. Calhoun and Henry Clay Thomas MacDonough John Marshall Oliver Hazard Perry Francis Scott Key Napoleon James Madison William Marbury Lewis and Clark Albert Gallatin Monroe and Livingston Andrew Jackson

1. Won the Battle of Lake Erie - Oliver Hazard Perry

On Sept.10, 1813, Perry earned the title "Hero of Lake Erie" after leading American forces and having won a decisive naval battle in the Lake Erie, against British forces. The battle was one of the many fought during the War of 1812.

2. Won the Battle of Lake Champlain - Thomas MacDonough

On Sept. 11, 1814, MacDonough led a 14-ship fleet to Plattsburg, N.Y., which was being threatened by Britain ground forces. The U.S. won, forcing the 16-vessel squadron of Britain to surrender. New York and Vermont were saved from invasion.

3. War Hawks - John C. Calhoun and Henry Clay

The War Hawks consisted of young members of the Twelfth's U.S. Congress (1811-1813) who were against British influence among Native Americans and supported U.S.'s expansionism.

Clay of Kentucky, leader of Western War Hawks, called for war against England and suggested to invade Canada. Calhoun of South Carolina, leading the Southern War Hawks, saw Texas and Florida as possible targets for U.S.'s expansionism.

4. Witnessed the British bombardment of Fort McHenry - Francis Scott Key

During the War of 1812, Key witnessed the British bombardment of Fort McHenry in Maryland in 1814 and the triumphant American flag above the fort once the battle was over. Such event inspired him to write "Defence of Fort M'Henry", a poem that later on was adapted to the tune of the song "To Anacreon in Heaven". And after some modifications it became the official American anthem in the 1930s.

5. First to declare act of Congress unconstitutional - John Marshall

In the Marbury v. Madison case (1803), Justice Marshall became the first to declare an act of Congress unconstitutional. Congress had given the S. Court the power to issue an order granting William Marbury his commission. However, Marshall held that only the Constitution could do so, and it was the S. Court the accountable for judicial review, that is to say, the right to review acts of Congress and the President. If the Court found that a law was unconstitutional, it could overrule the law.

6. President Jefferson's Secretary of State - James Madison

Madison served as Jefferson's Secretary of State from 1801 to 1809. One of his remarkable achievements in this role was the supervision of the Louisiana Purchase, which doubled the nation's size.

7. Sold the Louisiana Territory to the United States - Napoleon

In 1803, the French leader Napoleon sold the Louisana Territory (approximately 827,000 square miles of land) to the U.S. for $15 million.

8. Explored the Louisiana Territory and points west - Lewis and Clark

In 1804, President Jefferson tasked Lewis with exploring lands west of the Mississippi River, a part of Louisiana Purchase. Clark was the co-leader for the mission. The excursion, an approximately 8,000-mile journey over two years, provided new geographic, ecological and social information about North America.

9. President Jefferson's Secretary of the Treasury - Albert Gallatin

Gallatin's mastery of public finance made him earn the position of Jefferson's Secretary of the Treasury in 1801 and continued under President James Madison until 1814.

10. A Federalist judge who wanted his commission granted - William Marbury

A few months before John Adam ended his term, he persuaded Congress to pass a new law, the Judiciary Act of 1801, which gave the court the power to appoint new federal judges. His intention was to fill the court with people who would oppose the policies of the incoming Republican administration, led by Thomas Jefferson. Adams accomplished to appoint some 39 new judges, however, three commissions couldn't be delivered to three new justices, for lack of time. One of the commissions was meant to Marbury. Therefore he presented himself in the Supreme Court demanding such commission.

11. Won the Battle of New Orleans - Andrew Jackson

On January 8, 1815, General Jackson led American forces to victory against the British army invasion, even though the latter outnumbered American.

12. Bought an empire instead of a city - Monroe and Livingston

On April 12, 1803, James Monroe joined Livingston in Paris as minister extraordinary, as Jefferson commanded. Their purpose in France was to negotiate the acquisition of New Orleans and all or part of the Florida, or just New Orleans, and if France didn't accept it eighter then, at least, they had to secure U.S. access to the Mississippi and the port.

However, at the time France was going through a critical economic situation and doubted Louisiana's worth. Monroe and Livingston immediately entered into negotiations and on April 30, the purchase of the Louisiana territory was agreed for $15 million, even though they had been allocated only $10 million.

The purchase of Louisiana territory doubled the size of the U.S., this way Monroe and Livingston had negotiated to buy an empire instead of a city.

Compare and contrast Herbert Hoover’s strategy for ending the Great Depression with Franklin d. Roosevelt’s.

Although both presidents used the federal government more than any previous president had to try to get the economy back to full strength, their approaches to ending the Great Depression were different.
Hoover's main goal was to restore confidence in the economy and the banking system. He authorized loans to farmers with the Agriculture Marketing Acting and businessmen wouldn't they wouldn't go bankrupt, they were expected o be paid back. For the most part, he advocated "rugged individualism". He believed government handouts to the poor and unemployed greatly damaged the self-esteem of the recipients. One major Hoover initiative, the Smoot- Hawley Tariff of 1930, proved to be disastrous for the US and world economies. And as the situation in the US deteriorated, the US constitution passed the Emergency Relief and the Reconstruction Act. Hoover disagreed with it and used his powers as president to slow its implementation. He pushed a different bill  that he created, the Reconstruction Finance Act. He plan too little, too late. He lost favor with the American people. 
There is significantly much more that Roosevelt did, I will narrow most down. 
Roosevelt's mandate for change was so sweeping that he immediately went to work to restore the confidence in the US economic system. His program was called The New Deal. Roosevelt's overall strategy for combating the Depression was to provide relief to those who needed it most and to re-structure the US economy from the bottom up. The first thing the did was declare a "Bank Holiday". All banks in the US were closed indefinitely, until the banks and the government could control the situation. Theres so much more but Im sure you don't want a full blown essay.
