    Just looking at questions 11 and 14 it is obvious you haven't taken one iota of time to even look for these yourself. In case you missed it we don't have the "map" to look at nor the list of the two groups to compare.

    History is a road map to where our country is today. History is being written today and it is very interesting how this country developed over time and the people that were involved. Two it would do no one any good especially yourself as you are going to see this material again and if anyone took the time you need to take to just answer these for you you will eventually fail yourself. I'll give you a hint though the first two deal with Thomas Jefferson and the Louisiana Purchase. Take the time to resource information to develop the answers for yourself so You will learn the material. You will thank yourself later.
