- How did the civil status of American women and men differ in the early Republic? Women’s civil status was very different compared to men’s during this time. If a woman was married, she basically belonged to her husband. She had to do as she was told, could never keep her earned money, wasn’t allowed to make contracts, or even sue someone. Single adult women, however, could own property, make their own contracts, pay taxes, or sue someone if they wanted. They were still not allowed to vote and more often than not they made very little money. - How did the United States expand and strengthen its control of territory in North America in the nineteenth century?

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    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.
