Indian Removal Act

law passed by the United States Congress in 1830, and signed into law by President Andrew Jackson.Native Americans in the southeastern United States were encouraged to trade their lands for land in the west,freeing up land in the southeast for settlement and more land.
----------------------------------------
The year it took place in was 1830.

The country the act took lace in was the U.S.A.

The state it took place in was mississippi

the cultures were indians and and indian kids and white people.
The white people wanted to get the land that the indians already had so the indians made trades with the white people.

Indian Removal Act.
U.S settlers believed that Native Americans were taking all the land. This meant that if the native American's gave up they're land they would be moved to new land along the Mississippi River. This happened in May 28 1830. the disagreement was about Native American's taking over the land that was the settler's.

I chose the 19th amendment.It is about guaranteeing that all American women have the right to vote.it took decades to approve of this amendment.it began in the mid-19th century and many women and supporters marched and lectured and wrote about it.
this took place in the Mid-19th century all over the USA.
the cultural groups that were involved are Americans,African-Americans,and all the women.
this group of women disagreed on not letting all females be able to vote.

The 19th amendment alows people to vote, no matter their gender. This act was the result of the womans suffarge movement.

It involved American Adult women. They disagreed with the men on who had the right to vote.

The topic that i picked was the Nineteenth Amendment.The Nineteenth Amendment was about the United States Constitution prohibited any United States citizen the right to vote based on their gender.This Amendment was ratified on August 18,1920. The Constitution allows states to determine the qualifications for voting, and until the 1910s most states disenfranchised women. This Amendment was the end result of the Women Suffrage Movement which batted in both states an national levels to achieve the votes. Susan B. Anthony and Elizabeth Stanton drafted the amendment and first introduced it in 1878.This Amendment took place in the United States in the 1919 an 1920.The white an black women involved.The men disagreed if women should have the right to vote just like they had the right to vote.

My report will be about the Nineteenth Amendment. The Nineteenth Amendment made it legal for women to vote. It was Passed by Congress June 4, 1919 In the U.S. The female race was the most involved In this amendment. I think the men played a big part in it for they were the ones who could pass it. There were two groups involved. First there were the people who agreed with letting women vote. The there were the people that disagreed witch letting women vote.

The nineteenth Amendment was when women could not vote during the mid-19th century. and during the mid-19th century people would judge by saying that women can't vote.And then woman marched and did,lobbied, and practiced civil disobedience to achieve what many Americans considered a radical change of the Constitution.Then women and a few early supporters lived to see final victory in 1920.



2. It happened in the mid-19th century.The location was in the united states an nation wide.
3. people that were involved were black Americans an white Americans..

4. Letting the women to the right to vote.

Brown vs. Board of Education was a landmark in the U.S.A Supreme courts . It stated that state laws establishing separate public schools for black and white students was unconstitutional . This event took place in the U.S Supreme court on May 17 , 1954 . Oliver L. Brown , an African American , and the supreme court , White Americans , were involved . These groups disagreed on the fact of white and black students having to go to different schools . Oliver Brown stated that it was not right that the students went to different schools , and that it was not equal . The Supreme court had thought that it was how things should be though . This is the Brown vs Supreme Court case .

Indian removal act.
The Indian removal act was strongly supported in the south, where states were eager to gain access to lands inhabited by the Five Civilized Tribes. The Indian removal was also very controversial. It took place in the U.S. The cultural groups were the Native American and the U.S. The groups disagree on the Native Americans live in the U.S.

Montgomery Bus Boycott

The Montgomery Bus Boycott was a political and social protest campaign that started in 1955 in Montgomery, Alabama, USA, intended to oppose the city's policy of racial segregation on its public transit system. The boycott started when a woman named Rosa Parks refused to give up her seat on the bus to a white man and she was thrown in jail. The boycott started Dec. 1, 1955 and ended Dec. 20, 1956. This boycott caused so much financial damage for the Montgomery transit system that the buses were shut down. The discrimination was between white Americans and African Americans. The whites believed that they should sit in the front of the buss and the blacks should give up their seat to the white person and sit in the back of the buss. The blacks believed that they should have rights and be able to sit anywhere and not have to give up there seat.
