"History despite it's wrenching pain, cannot be unlived, and if faced with courage, need not be lived again." (LMTTM 137.) If students are educated with our past, then they'll learn from the mistakes that were made. A great deal of my eighth grade year was spent on the Holocaust. Not only was it taught in history class, but also in my English and class. I even had the pleasure of meeting two survivors from Auschwitz, a Nazi concentration camp. The teachers made it clear to us that the reason so much time was spent on the Holocaust was to prevent it from happening to our generation. They believed that if they showed us how wrong it was, we'd keep it from happening to us. This is why the

Throughout American history, the development of plantations (farms) in the American colonies arrived as immigrants arrived in small farms. The American people settled on the land west of the Mississippi for many diverse reasons. As the years went, by the profit and demand for crops such as tobacco grew larger. At that time, large plantation could had over 400 acres of fields growing anything from tobacco to maize and sugarcane(in the south), as the myths reveal. The farmers were also in the business of buying slaves as they were auctioned off at the ports or owned as indentured servants.Initially, many Americans were reluctant to move westward. Early explorers thought that the country

The TelegraphThroughout history, there have been many versions of the telegraph. It was first demonstrated in 1835 by Professor Moncke in Germany. Another version was developed in 1837 by William Cooke which could transmit a signal as far as 1.6km away. The Morse Code was then developed in 1844 by American Samuel Morse, which used a series of dots and dashes to send messages 60 kilometres away. As a switch on the telegraph was opened and closed, the dots and dashes were transmitted onto paper or converted into sounds which were read by a translator. The first telegraph table was established in 1851 across the English Channel and another was laid across the Atlantic Ocean in 1858 however

Perhaps the view of the U.S. entering WWI turned into most promising after the ripple effect of events after the sinking of the Lusitania. Each event made the United States weaker for entering the war and lastly there was no proper way to stay neutral. The instant cause of America's entry into World War I in April 1917 was the German announcement of unrestricted submarine warfare, and the following sinking of ships with Americans on board the Lusitania. The effects of the war were widespread throughout the world and can be traced for generations after the war.jkThe unrestricted submarine warfare was a sort of naval warfare in which submarines submerged merchant ships without notice.

Brief HistoryMany names (Samal, Ibabao, Tandaya) were given to Samar Island prior to the coming of the Spaniards in 1596. The name Samar was derived from the local dialect "samad", meaning wound or cut, which aptly describes the rough physical features of the island that is rugged and deeply dissected by streams.During the early days of Spanish occupation, Samar was under the jurisdiction of Cebu. In 1735, Samar and Leyte were united into one province with Carigara, Leyte as the capital town and again Samar became a separate province in 1768.Samar (Western Samar)Western Samar, formerly Samar, is a province of the Philippines located in the Eastern Visayas Region.

Throughout the long history of the free world, there has always been at least one country that reigned supreme over all other nations. During the Age of Exploration Spain wielded this power. With its defeat came the supremacy of Great Britain. For centuries China ruled with an iron-fist over all of Asia, until Japan emerged as a rival for this power in the late eighteen-hundreds. The Soviet Union was one of the great superpowers, a position it shared with America until its downfall in the twentieth-century.

Examples of these small events that can lead the difference in a nation's history are the Triangle Shirtwaist Fire, the OPEC Oil Embargo of 1973, and the murder of Emmett Till.

The Black Death was one of the most destructive pandemics to occur in history. It killed ⅓ of Europe’s population from 1346-1353. The Black Death was a bacteria which presented itself in many forms of the plague which resulted in the bubonic plague. It originated in central Asia and traveled along the silk road. This fatal disease lived on through black rats and through trade routes which is how it spread. The Black Death affected European society through artistic changes, class structure, and religious conflict.

The more than 3000 year long history of Ancient Egypt has been divided into 8 or 9 periods, sometimes called Kingdoms. This modern-day division is somewhat arbitrarily based on the country's unity and wealth and the power of the central government. The Ancient Egyptians themselves did not group their rulers according to such criteria. They rather seem to have developed the notion of dynasties throughout their history. The Palermo Stone simply lists the kings one after the other, without any apparent need of grouping them. The Turin Kinglist, which is more recent, has grouped the kings according to their descendance or origin. Thus, Amenemhat I and his descendants, are described as the kings

Some civilizations were successful, and others were not, with the addition of other cultures to a preexisting culture already forged in that area.

When exploring African-American history, the most important things to focus on are that because of the times, black people were enslaved and treated poorly. They endured it all and worked hard to rise above the boundaries of slavery and prejudice. However, the most portentous aspect of African-American history is that it's heritage; it's history; and it's over.Jane Minor was born as Gensey Snow around the late 1700's or early 1800's. She was born into slavery and freed around 1825 when she changed her name. During her slavery, she faced the hardships of being a black female slave in the 1800's.
