    Rachel I am all for helping kids with their homework, but if you don't learn this part of American History and Learn it well, you are doing yourself a TREMENDOUS disservice.

    All of these can be researched and read about. I STRONGLY recommend you do this on your own.

    Research is how you learn. You don't want to cheat yourself. How would like to go through heart surgery someday with a surgeon who had people from Yahoo answers take his/her quizzes?
