The Fifteenth Amendment and President Ulysses S. Grant
The fifteenth amendment of the united states was made to create equal opportunity for voters in America without being discriminated against. I believe one of the good things Grant is known for was creating the first park – Yellowstone National Park – bringing together federal lands in Wyoming, Idaho and Montana. I think the 15th amendment was a good idea because it overturned the preexisting statute prohibiting African-American citizens of the United States from suffrage so any previous station of servitude or slavery undertaken by any individual was immaterial with regard to the right to vote. The third reason I think that both the 15th amendment and Grant are good is because he successfully carried out his plan to integrate blacks, guarantee their rights, and support equality may be this: during Grant’s eight years in office, the South went from being half Republican to nearly entirely Democratic. The reason I support the 15th Amendment is because it was difficult to pass due to racism and prejudice in the south and Grant’s presidency, which he thought that having the votes of African Americans was more important for the future of the republican party, especially if it was able to be passed and he ran for a second election he’d win for sure, because he supported equal rights among voters although the abolishment of slavery started not long before its’ ratification. (The civil war and its aftermath: Civil Rights Laws and Constitutional Amendments, pages 121-122 by O’Conner, Sabato, Yanus) reason I support President Ulysses S. Grant is because saw his fathers’ efforts in being a Whig party supporter and abolitionist. He started off in military school at the age of seventeen and he graduated in 1843, ranking 21st in a class of 39. Glad to leave the academy, his plan was to resign his commission after…...

Bangladesh and 15th Amendment

...The 15th amendment, CG, indigenous people, and related issues→ M. Serajul Islam  The 15th amendment was inevitable because of the abolition of the 5th and 7th amendments by the Court. However, the Parliamentary Committee that was set up to deal with the Court's rulings extended its terms of reference beyond the rulings and delved into issues and areas that had already divided the nation, for instance the issue of the caretaker government. Interestingly, the day before the Committee placed the draft of the 15th amendment before Parliament; its Co-Chairman stated in the media that it would not make any recommendation on the CG. Lo and behold, the abolition of the CG was the number one recommendation of the Committee that did not enhance its credibility to the public.  The 15th amendment has also created controversy with regard to the people of our hill districts. Recently, on the occasion of World Indigenous People's Day, a few comments of the leaders of our hill tribes attracted my attention. One of them said on TV that the people of the hill tracts should be "grateful" to those who drafted the 15th amendment for "upgrading" their status from an "upajati" (sub-nation) to full "jati" (nation) by legally making them Bangalis from their hitherto status as Chakmas and members of other hill tribes of the country. The tone of sarcasm and sadness in his words did not escape viewers' attention. Another tribal leader who was interviewed on the same issue said that regrettably......

15th Amendment

...An assignment on 15th amendment of the Bangladesh constitution. The 15th amendment of the Bangladesh constitution is perhaps the most debatable one in the post democratic era that follows the 1990 public upsurge against autocracy. The often pronounced justifications offered for this amendment is the ‘needs’ for returning to the spirit and contents of the founding constitution of 1972 of Bangladesh. Yet the 15th amendment rather accommodates some of the changes brought out by the 5th and 7th amendments, both made by the Martial Law regime and recently declared illegal and unconstitutional by the apex court of the country. 15th amendment, like most of the previous amendments, also largely failed to reflect comparative constitutional studies. Such study is considered essential for learning the experiences of constitutionalism in relevant jurisprudences and borrowing or adapting them in amending a nation’s own constitution. Although the 1972 constitution of Bangladesh was indigenous in part, the 1972 Constituent Assembly (led by Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman) enriched our constitution by the same process of borrowing and/or adapting from models and concepts of foreign constitutions. For example: collective responsibility of ministers to Parliament and functions of parliamentary committees were taken from UK system, the concept of fundamental principle of state policy from India and Ireland, the provisions of human rights and Judicial review from US constitutional......

Why Did China Fall Behind Europe in the 15th Century?

...Why did China fall behind Europe in the 15th century? In my opinion, the main reason that China fell behind Europe in the 15th century is the closing down of itself with other civilizations and the banned international trades strategies which severed the communication and connection of the Chinese people with the outside world. And in the same time the rapid growth of the European countries had boosted those civilizations in the other direction thanks to the newly discovered resources on the other side of the Atlantic Ocean. I would like to explain these ideas from the following aspects: The early developments of China: China has gone through a period of rapid technological advances in the first centuries of human history thanks to its particular geographical location and the early coming together of the nations within its boundary. Although there were lots of nations fighting wars against each other, aiming to control all the territory on the land of the so-called East Asia nowadays, the Chinese empire was finally founded by the Qin and the united nation has adopted lots of governing strategies to develop the livelihood of its people not only in literature but also in science. Because of these factors, the Chinese people have invented ways to preserve the cultural and technological achievements and also have developed ways to explore the 1/7 outside world. Such decisions have been made since the Han dynasty when the empire opened up the Silk Road to the west,......

From Manuscript to Bound Book: How the Printing Press Revolutionized 15th Century Literature

...From Manuscript to Bound Book: How the Printing Press Revolutionized 15th Century Literature “The invention of printing broadcast the printed language and gave to print a degree of authority that it has never lost.”- A. Lloyd James Before the days of automated printers and wireless communication, manuscripts represented the primary but inefficient and costly way to record, obtain and share knowledge. It was not until the 15th century when Johannes Gutenberg’s printing press revolutionized the way information was stored and disseminated. The printing press quickly changed the way in which written works were manufactured and which works could be produced by allowing private citizens to publish books and other written texts at a marketable rate. Illustrated through the invention of Gutenberg’s machine, society as a whole was impacted by the way in which information was produced, and through the press’ impact on academia and on the political and religious groups of the 15th and 16th centuries. Exemplified by the restricted writing methods at the time and the constraints transcription raised on the production of manuscripts, the printing press had a significant impact on universities and the methods of medieval education. Through readily available literature, the resulting increase of literacy had a large effect on the scientific community and a shift in power for the ruling parties of the time. Ultimately, the easy dissemination of political ideas in medieval Europe led to......

Art History Through the 15th Century

...Art History through the 15th Century Introduction Art is an interesting aspect of life that a society cannot afford to lose. Art has been practiced for many years and is still under practice because of its rich heritage and many other importance’s that cannot be overruled. The collection and perseveration of pieces of art is a noble undertaking and those that have been given the responsibility of ensuring that a piece of art has to be preserved should not hesitate in doing that. The history of art will not be complete without mentioning the names and artistic work of characters such as Donatello in the medieval period and Carlo Crivelli of the Gothic period. The two artists have many pieces of arts among them the “Mary Magdalene’’ and “Crucifixion’’ respectively. The preservation of pieces of arts is of much importance, pieces can be analyzed descriptively while at the same time it is important to appreciate that social, political and religious beliefs influence the design, the function, the purpose and the symbolic message in a piece of art. This essay will describe the two pieces of art and also explain the cultural significance of art. Medieval Period Art: Donatello’s Art-Mary Magdalene Many pieces of arts were produced by several artists during this period. The pieces of arts were rich in content and beauty. Donatello is among the famous artists of this period that came up with a number of pieces of art that are still currently discussed and analyzed hence the......

13th, 14th, and 15th Amendments

...The thirteenth amendment formally abolished the institution of slavery, and gave congress the power to enforce it. The thirteenth amendment was necessary because even though the Emancipation Proclamation declared slaves in the south to be freed, the southern states refused to free them, and the amendment encompassed the entire U.S. and it’s territories. Overall, I feel the amendment was a success, because it gave the government the ability to enforce it as a law. There were many ways that southerners found to work around this new law, such as black work camps, but overall I think that the amendment was a success. The fourteenth amendment is much more complex, and is broken into five sections. Section 1 established citizenship to all persons born or naturalized in the United States. It also stated that states could not make or enforce any laws that would diminish the privileges or immunities of citizens. It declared that states could not deprive any person of life, liberty, or property without due process of law, and that no person could be denied the equal protection of the laws. Section 2 described that the number of representatives from each state would be proportioned to the number of people for that state, and that count is determined by the whole number of persons, excluding non-taxed Indians, in that state. It also stated that if any man was denied the right to vote, then the number of representation for that state would be reduced in proportion to the number of......
