5: Don't think: Look! -Ludwig Wittgenstein | The experiences of African Americans at mid-century depended on where they lived and whether they lived in slavery or freedom. Free Africans usually held low-paying jobs. African Americans in the north lived freer lives. But blacks experience discrimination, or unequal treatment, everywhere they turned. whether they owned slaves or not, white southerners understood that their economy depended on cotton. slaves worked on farms of various sizes. Slaves had really poor shelter

6: Different areas of the north had distinctive natural features. The jagged new England coast, for example, had hundreds of bays and intents that were perfect for use as harbors. The south economy was based on agriculture, and southerners were proud of it. Whitney's cotton engine, "called the cotton gin for short, was a simple machine that used rotating combs to separate cotton fiber from its seed. south seemed to rule the north in cotton. in 1700s, however, investors started to devise machines to make products more quickly and cheaply. Factories produce more good and made them affordable.

7: To most Americans, the Louisiana purchase looked liked the greatest land deal in history. far to the northwest of Texas lay Oregon country.

8: There is something of the marvelous in all things of nature. -Aristotle | The men who fought for the confederacy were proud defenders of southern Douglas after fort Sumter, “only patriots-and traitors.” president Lincoln's response to attack on fort Sumter was quick and clear. he called 75,000 volunteers to come forward to preserve the Union. To win the war, the north would have to invade and conquer the south. the south main weakness was an economy that could not support a long war. A lot of women supported the war

9: By the end of the civil war, Americans longed for peace. Reconstruction, or rebuilding the south and bringing the southern states back into the union, would not be easy. During reconstruction, slaves were granted the right to marry and live with family members from whom they had been separated. One of the black codes purpose was to limit the rights of freedom. The second one was to help planters find workers to replace their slaves. The third one was to keep freedmen at the bottom of the social order in the south. Sharecroppers, such as these shown growing cotton, rented their land from plantation owners. Most of them paid one third to one half of their crops back to the landowners.

20: As long as I live, I'll hear waterfalls and birds and winds sing. I'll interpret the rocks, learn the language of flood, storm, and the avalanche. I'll acquaint myself with the glaciers and wild gardens, and get as near the heart of the world as I can. -John Muir
