Just a history question I need help on! About slaves.?

There is probably info on this in ur textbook, but here are some thoughts:

While weapons were important, manpower was very important in this time in history. A larger army gave a considerable advantage. Using slaves increased the size of one's army.
For the British this meant using less of their sons to go to war in a 'foreign' land. For the Americans, it meant taking slaves away from their work, but increased the chances of victory.

The slaves benefited by getting away from difficult work. Many were promised payment. Some were promised freedom. See the link below:

Just 3 US HISTORY questions i need help with! please help quickly!!!?

1. Slavery... They tried to deal with the expansion of the US in new territories in the west. Most people didn't want slavery to spread, but the slave states didn't want to be outnumbered by non-slave states. These compromises were only temporary fixes leading to the Civil War.

2. The anti-federalists didn't want a strong central government (because it might become like the unfair European monarchies) so I'm assuming your teacher wants you to talk about the development of the system of checks and balance. I.E. how the government has the three separate judicial branches, executive/the President, legislative/the Senate, and judicial/supreme court.

3. I'm not sure what the third question is asking. It might have to do with the Great Depression or the Dust Bowl because Dorothy's family is farmers that are struggling I think.

Anyways hope this helps.

Is the report on the history of slavery in the Southern Baptist Convention just virtue signaling, or an honest examination of the past?

You’re kidding me, right???Does that make the 18th Amendment which outlawed slavery virtue signalling for the US? Taking a stand against racism is virtue signaling now? This makes it inescable to be non-racist. Thats an absurd position. Thats why the language of virtue signaling is incredibly dubious.We don’t have access to their intents, but their mission seems 100% good on this issue.Not to mention, any question about virtue signaling ends up being a form of virtue signaling (so in a best case scenario for you, this is a bit of pot and kettle)
