  • Plantation slavery
    Plantation slavery Slave Life The warm climate, boundless fields of fertile soil, long growing seasons, and numerous waterways provided favorable conditions for farming plantations in the South (Foster).

  • Tenskwatawa
    Tenskwatawa History has not been kind to Tenskwatawa, otherwise known as Lalawethika or The Prophet. He is inevitably compared to his heroic brother Tecumseh and fails to measure up in both physical and moral stature. He seems hidden in the shade of his brother\'s name, whereas his brother would never have had the stature he received if it were not for The Prophet\'s religion of classical Indian heritage. Lalawethika seemed to be plentiful of both physical and social shortcomings. An unimpressiv
  • The Hippie Culture

  • The truth about Thanksgiving
    The truth about Thanksgiving The truth behind the tradition is surprising. Thanksgiving and the Pilgrims seem to go together, but the truth is, the Pilgrims never held an autumnal Thanksgiving feast. However the Pilgrims did have a feast in 1621, after their first harvest, and it is this feast, which people often refer to as "The First Thanksgiving". This feast was never repeated, though, so it can\'t be called the beginning of a tradition, nor was it termed by the colonists or "Pilgrims" a Than
