Good morning, scholars! I hope you all had a wonderful and restful weekend!
Today, we are going to continue to read about some important moments in the presidency of Andrew Jackson ("Old Hickory") and then President Martin Van Buren. One theme (recurring idea)that can seen in studying American history is how significant the role of the federal (national) government should be in solving problems that affect individual states and cities. In fact, one can see that dynamic in play today with the crisis that is currently affecting the United States.
One of the big issues in the Election of 1832 (won by Andrew Jackson) was should the United States have a powerful central bank (called the Bank of the United States). Another issue that is similar to today is that the government had to figure out how to handle very difficult economic (financial) times in the country. This time was called "The Panic of 1837."
Thinking like a historian means making connections between the present and important historical events. When you read the passage try to look for any similarities to what the United States is currently going through and past events from the 1830s.
Carefully read the text and put a lot of effort into your answers. Good luck. I'm proud of all of you!
I Can: Analyze the attack on Pearl Harbor and assess the role it had on the United States entering World War II
•The countries that made up the Allied and Axis powers (Allied powers: Great Britain, France, China, United States, USSR. Axis powers: Germany, Italy, and Japan).
• The U.S. had been providing the Allies with weapons and supplies under the Lend-Lease Act. (Which meant even though the United States initially maintained neutrality, they were never really neutral.)
•During this time, the U.S. had been holding meetings with representatives of the Japanese government in an attempt to maintain peace between the two countries
