Can you answer some of these history questions please?
I need to know about these topics for my final exam tomorrow, and I forgot my book at school. If you could leave a short explanation of some of the terms (like a sentence or two) that would be great.
Even if you only answer a couple, it'll really help.
Mexican American War:
Henry David Thoreau:
Union & Confederacy:
Northern and southern strategies:
Advantages and Disadvantages of North and South:
John Wilkes Booth:
Rutherford B. Hayes:
Tenure of Office Act:
Wade Davis Bill:
Plessy V. Ferguson:
Compromise of 1850:
Compromise of 1877:
Gospel of Wealth:
Knights of Labor:
Spanish American War:
Peace Treaty Spanish American War:
Panama Canal Zone:
Thanks a lot! Even if you only do a couple I'll really appreciate it.
By saying I left my book at school, I meant my book and notebook... With my notes...

You should have been taking notes through out the class. You would be prepared by now if you had.
Your best bet is to just search each topic on the Internet; it will go a lot faster.

Industrial Revolution, when this country switched from an agricultural nation to amking goods and services.
Slavery, where farmers used cheap labor to profit, and the various industries supply and selling the slaves.Source(s): I could do dozens more, but this your work. Funny how much you can learn from a public education before there was an internet, or computers to look history up.

Google is your friend. Why did you forget your books when you have a final exam?? School does not get easier and organization is key. Get with the program!!

Pray to god your exam is multiple choice and pick "c" for every third question. For all others rotate between A, B, D, then back down, D, B, A.

You obviously have a computer hooked up to the internet.... Go do a google search and start studying.

Nope. Do your own research. You obviously have a computer and these are readily available. And this is monumental. Many of us who never agree on anything, agree on this.

Clearly, someone didn't get these answers during the schoolyear, and now needs them for summer school.
