    I helped with a few. I would check the answers, as they are answered from what I remember from years ago. I recommend you however do all the problems yourself, or else you will not get an understanding of the US history. Your book should have these answers given pretty straight forward. It would have been easier if you looked for the answers in your book rather than asking here. Either way good luck.
