As the dispute grew more and more the American Patriots set forth to win their independence and to build a new equality based society. By the late eighteenth century... as...

While one person may be better than the other but in order to generalize a claim- it is imperative to see which of the two is better in a collective way- which one of the two makes a better culture to be better than the other.

One of the key institutions of the African American slave community was the church which played a great role in looking into the affairs and calling for the proper treatment of the slaves. On the other hand, the plantations offered the slaves a sense of unity of purpose from where they could ultimately raise some nerve and voice out their grievances.

The south, on the other hand, had a lot of agricultural produce and a lot of trained officers in the field. In a way, the history of the American West is seen as the displacement of ol...
