Geography affects the United States border security by making some borders more accessible to cross and making them more feasible spots for illegal crossings while making other borders somewhat problematic to cross. For the United States, the East and West Coasts are sometimes challenging to access due to their geography. They face towards large oceans and are often quite distant from any foreign countries. The northern and southern borders are very long land borders. These borders go through very isolated areas and can be very hard to keep order and patrol. The northern border is generally seen as a less likely spot for illegal crossings because it borders on a prosperous country

law to all Americans living in the country. The movement has had a lasting impact on United States society, in its tactics, the increased social and legal acceptance of civil rights, and in its exposure of the prevalence and cost of racism (Wikipedia). Disfranchisement was a largely growing problem following the Civil War. In the early 1800s, people who were strongly opposed to black civil rights would resort to economic reprisals and sometimes violence in the in hopes of discouraging blacks from registering to vote. Most Southern states had circumvented the 15th Amendment and deprived African Americans of the right to vote by using devices like literary tests, poll taxes and white-only

the time of the convention five states had already abolished slavery, which made the southern states tentative to join the union for the fear of not having their slaves counted for representation in congress. A compromise was made that allowed for three out of every five slaves to be counted as the population. The slave owning states made it very clear that the only way for a union was for slavery to be legal in the southern states. Before the United States of America formally came into existence as a country, the agricultural states of the south showed how important slavery was to their economy. Tensions increased as every new state entered the union. The debate of whether the new state

After a series of godly spiritual visions, Turner viewed himself as divinely ordained to lead his fellow slaves out of bondage, and upon receiving god’s final revelation, Nat Turner began the slave insurrection. For Turner, the rebellion was justified, because he was doing god’s work, however, the white population viewed the rebellion as a product of Turner’s religious fanaticism. In the southern United States, religious principles and superior white intelligence were two major justifications for the enslavement of

After the fall of Ft. Sumter, Lincoln raised an army and decided to fight to save the Union from falling apart. Despite enormous pressures, loss of life, battlefield setbacks, generals who weren't ready to fight, and assassination threats, Lincoln stuck with this pro-Union policy for four long years of Civil War.

states and split from the north. Well Abraham Lincoln thought that would be the downfall
of the United States. The Civil War was fought to between the Union and the
Confederacy on the issue of splitting up the United States. The country was divided

In 1863 President Abraham Lincoln added the 13th amendment to the Constitution, abolishing slavery in the United States. Now I know what you thinking sweetheart, that’s the miracle we have all been waiting for but unfortunately it was not that simple. This amendment claimed we were no longer slaves, but it did not stated that people of color were U.S. citizens and held the same equal rights of those held by the white men.

So how did Jefferson decide what type of home he wanted and how to go about getting it built? “As a profession, architecture in the American colonies was virtually a monopoly of carpenter craftsmen, masons, and related building tradesmen (Adams, p. 3)”. In 1760 the study of architecture did not exist in the colonies when Jefferson went to college. In 1771 Jefferson wrote a letter to a business correspondent Thomas Adams

even physical damage to fruits, shoots, and branches. These characteristics allow olive trees to grow in the temperate climates of the southeastern and southwestern United States, New Zealand, and even parts of the United Kingdom where plenty of sunlight and warm temperatures prevail during the summer. Olive trees are also scattered along the Nile River basin, as they have adapted to grow in the sandy soil that covers the region. Tropical areas, however, possess unsuitable conditions for olive cultivation, since the humid climate and incessant rainfall expose the trees to too much moisture. The large annual temperature ranges and extreme cold of the continental climates also do not support the cultivation of olives. Thus, anyone wishing to cultivate olives outside the Mediterranean climate regions should research local climate data and determine if the area is prone to extreme cold or any other conditions that could adversely affect their crop.

This territorial issue continued to cause friction between the two nations into the twentieth century. During the first two decades of the twentieth century, the secession of Panama from Colombia in 1903 was a major source of friction in Colombia-United States relations. Colombia's boundary with Peru was settled initially in 1922, but problems developed again in 1932 when Peru seized an area around Leticia in the Amazon Basin that both nations claimed.

Prior to the 21st century, most Americans heated their homes with a heating oil system. As of 2014, 6.5 million American households were still equipped to this system. 87% of them are coming directly from the Northeastern region of the United States. A heating oil system uses petroleum products to provide heat to buildings. These petroleum products are derived from crude oil at refineries. Crude oil is a fossil fuel, which is consists of hydrocarbons. It is removed from deep within the Earth, where it is found in a liquid state. (EIA,2015)
When the crude oil is transformed into petroleum products and then burned, many harmful chemicals are released into the air
