I am sorry, not being from the US I can't help you as it is not the history I learned. I have read through your questions and I am reminded of subjective history is. We are taught it from our own perspectives and they can be very different from each other depending on which country you have learned history in. Good luck to you anyway.

You obviously have an internet connection....use it! Some of these questions have incredibly obvious answers, some are slightly more complicated; but none are anything that should not have been covered in class. Also, the questions are multiple choice, so you should be able to rule out at least one or two answers as completely wrong, giving you a 50/50 chance even if you guess between the last two.

While I am willing to help on homework, you are actually asking others to do your work for you. Not cool!

As I mentioned in the first post, I was really tight on time. Which was my own fault, I know, for procrastinating until the last minute. I looked up as many as I could myself, but if I had had the time to search every single question for the right answer online, I would've run out of time. Hence the whole reason why I even created this thread. As I said, I don't normally do this, because like you said it is asking others to do my work for me, it was just a spur of the moment thing I was trying out to help me finish an assignment on time...

Thanks to everyone else for your help!

Why did you even bother commenting on this thread, if you have nothing to add? If the OP desired to get criticized by you, they would have asked for that, not homework help. I feel you did the OP a great disservice and wonder what kind of upbringing you had. Not everybody is a genius at history.
