The American Civil War began with secession, creating a divided union of sorts, and sparked an incredibly cataclysmic four years. Although the actual war began with secession, this was not the only driving force. The economy of the Southern states, the Confederacy, greatly if not entirely depended on the institution of sla

However, the madness had just begun. That August morning was the day that heralded the dawn of the nuclear age, and with it came more than just the loss of lives.

    National Socialism between 1920 and 1945 can best be described as an era of constant change.

Soon after Hitler's enrollment the party's name was changed to the National Socialist German Worker's Party and in the summer of 1921 his talents as an orator and propagandist enabled him to take over the leadership of the Nazi Party.

The reason for such significant change in North-South relations is evident through the actions, views, and words of John Brown. A precursor to the North-South struggle began at Pottawatomie, Kansas during the time period known as “Bleeding Kansas.” The violence
