2. Then read pp. 467-469 to understand both the opportunities and challenges that lie ahead for these groups.

As you think through these contrasts, apply your thoughts to the larger view - God's perspective.

My first thought is Revelation 7:9-10,

"After this I looked, and behold, a great multitude that no one could number, from every nation, from all tribes and

peoples and languages, standing before the throne and before the Lamb, clothed in white robes, with palm

branches in their hands, and crying out with a loud voice, 'Salvation belongs to our God who sits on the throne, and

to the Lamb!'"

1. Why did Mexican Americans lose rights to their land?

Corruption in Politics: Read pages 529-532 and describe the following:

1. The spoils system 2. Pendleton Civil Service Act

Problems for Farmers: Read the lesson below and pages and list the three problems farmers faced.

Since the early 1800s, the United States has been a land divided between agriculture and industry. The question is which will dominate – but the truth is, each is equally needed. As the 2nd Industrial Revolution following the Civil War has shown, businesses made great strides and changed the face of the US with large, booming cities and huge corporations and developments. In the meantime, the farmer and his needs were basically ignored.

To counter this, farmers began to organize and unite (similar to the factory workers in the cities). A network (many connected with the same goals) of organizations was created to address the problems.

The goals of the Grange (organized by Oliver H. Kelley):

● Provide education on new farming techniques (to create better production, more efficient work, etc) ● Regulate (watch over) charges for using the railroads and for storing grain (many businessmen were charging

high rates because the government did not interfere

Victories for Grange:

● Laws that set a maximum rate for shipping on the railroads and for storage. ● Establishment of the ICC (Interstate Commerce Commission) – in other words – government watches over

anything that goes across state lines for the purpose of buying and selling – usually requiring the use of railroads

Following the decline of the Grange, Farmer’s Alliances began to form in order to also gain help from one another and from the US government.

Eventually, all of these alliances together formed the Populist Party, or the People’s Party. In a country that was only used to having two political parties, the Populist Party – a third political party – would now split the votes even more and put pressure on the other two parties to get more votes.

The most important thing about a third party is that it brings attention to particular issues – the fact that it has formed as a party demonstrates that enough people think the issues are important and worth fighting for, and that the other two parties are not concerned enough.

What did the Populists want?

● Increase in money supply by minting silver as well as gold ● Graduated income tax – the rich pay more and the poor pay less ● Government loans for farmers

● Election of US senators by popular vote ● Eight-hour workday ● Restrictions on immigration (to keep them from taking jobs of those already in the country) ● Government ownership of railroads (so businessmen can’t take advantage of farmers)

During the Presidential election of 1896, a man named William Jennings Bryan ran on the Democratic ticket, but believed in many of the Populist goals. It looked like the Democrats and Populists might win the election. William McKinley ran for the Republicans. As much as they hoped, the Democrats/Populists failed to win and the Republicans took the Presidency. The party lost “popularity” – nice pun, huh?? And soon most of the people from that party moved over to the Democrats.

BUT, the Populists did gain some victories as we shall see when we get to The Progressives – a group that is all about reform!

Document-based Assessments

Be sure to check the rubric!

Document-Based Assessments are helpful in developing critical thinking

skills both in history and throughout life.

● Document-based pages use charts, graphs, photos, letters, eye-witness accounts, etc. to help the student investigate a

particular period of history from those who actually experienced it.

● Note the author and purpose of documents to assess their viewpoint, validity, etc.

● Depending on the year of the document, some of the language may be more difficult to understand, so have a dictionary handy for

unknown words, etc. in order to gain a better understanding of the


As you learn to comprehend and discern which sources are

valuable, what perspective is taken and what the authors use as

evidence to support their thinking, you will also learn to master

this skill.

We will be looking closely at many of the activities of this type in your text.  So, get out your thinking caps and enjoy these activities. 

Today's Assignment: page 431 - answer the 3 multiple choice questions

and compose a solid paragraph for the last question.

● Always be sure that you have reviewed the topic before


● Read the documents carefully and notice the date of each


● The writing must be specific and clearly supported.

● No general statements!

W2D4 This week's question:

● Read Judges 12:1-6, 2 Samuel 2:12-31 What were some of the effects of these ‘Civil Wars’ in Biblical times? Think of ​two connections​ between the Biblical wars and the American Civil War?

● Why was the Civil War fought? Was it over states’ rights or slavery? Explain your answer.

● Reply to at least two of your classmate’s postings.

Classmates’ posts (reply to this two) R,​ Anthony​: ​Some of the effects the Civil wars in biblical times created, were they brought fear into others hearts knowing that they could be killed by the war. The wars

were connected because they both wanted freedom and the both wanted peace. The civil

war was fought for slavery because they wanted to change the laws for slavery so that

people may have more freedom than what they had with slavery going on.

M, McCall​: One connection was the Battle of Refidim. That was when the Israelites fought the Amalek people, who where also from Israel. It's like the Civil war which was America

vs America. Another connection was they fought the battle for freedom, like the Civil

war. The Israelites wanted freedom (promises land), therefore the purpose of the battle.

The Civil war was fought because people just could not get past their differences. Some

believed that the slaves should be freed, others not so much. Since they could not agree

they began to battle it out. Some believed that African Americans should have rights like

everyone else, others believed that they did not deserve them. So yes I do believe that

it was about states rights and slavery.
