    1. False (it was Andrew Johnson, then Bill Clinton).

    2. False

    3. False (public school systems actually became established shortly thereafter, in the 1880-1890 time frame).

    4. Don't recall.

    5. True.

    6. False. It was about 1 in 5.

    7. If your first word is "many," that depends on how much is "many." But, the Civil War pales as a period of immigration to the Irish relocation in the Forties, the "railroad" immigrations which settled the West, or the Ellis Island immigrations at the turn of the century.

    8. True.

    9. He was a Southerner; he did not have to.

    10. The Bureau was set up specifically to aid freed slaves, which included no whites.

    11. My recollection is that Jim Crow came after the army was withdrawn, but I would look that one up.

    Scientists have reported not something of the form. not something will ensue. the completed ingredient is an invention via a gaggle of frauds and crackpots attempting to get you to purchase valueless books and video clips. None of it has any foundation in genuine technology. the individuals merchandising this have not got any awareness of technology. they only desire to faux to be knowledgeable with the intention to electrify the gullible. don't be between the gullible. there is no 'historical prediction' via the Mayans or all of us else. those have been all invented in the final twenty years. there is no 'secret planet' approximately to bypass via. Why do not the fraudsters let us know its cutting-edge coordinates? you settle on. there will be no alignment, the two planetary or galactic. while replaced into the final alignment that brought about us any issues besides? there will be no pole shift. A magnetic pole shift isn't forthcoming and specific tens of 1000's of years away. A surprising rotational pole shift is a actual impossibility. the subsequent photograph voltaic optimal is anticipated in mid 2013, not 2012 and is anticipated to be much less extreme than the final optimal in 2001. different predictions such because of the fact the photon belt and Terence McKenna's Timewave 0 are in basic terms too stupid to complication with.
