and explained why and how the colonies were officially separating from the British rule. This document officially established a new nation and is also a very large part of why our country is not currently under British rule. Learning about this provided a better understanding and realization that our country was not always a free nation. The Civil War, which lasted four years, was a major turning point in our history. There was a divide in our country over the abolition of slavery. The country went to war, and the Union, who was not in support of slavery, had won. Learning about this is very important because it changed many things, such as the way treated slaves and former slaves, and how different side of our

country looked at each other. Another very important thing we learned about in US History this semester was the assassination of President Abraham Lincoln in 1865. The assassination occurred soon after the war had ended and was a rough time for many Americans, as many praised Lincoln to be the best President the US had seen. I think it was important to learn about this because it was really one of the first types of domestic terrorism that occurred directly towards the President of the US during this time. Finally, the United States Railroad System I also feel was something important to learn about because not only did it completely change the way the US traded, but it also changed how the East and West side of the US reached each other to trade. The railways expanded all the way across the Us and allowed for the easy transport of trading products such as cotton, tobacco, coal, etc. This ultimately changed the US in a very impactful way and is one of the main reasons we have easy access to almost anything across the country.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
