Transcript of Venn Diagram of American Revolution Books

The Civil War effected everyone
“Had Europe and America not come together through Columbus or some other connection, the industrial Revolution would never had happened in the way we know it” (59)
"Today the agricultural experimentation that began many centuries ago in the Andes continues at the International Potato Institute, located in the suburbs of Lima" (77)
"Columbus arrived in the New World in 1492, but America has yet to be discovered" (255)
“One of those crops, the American Indian potato made a big change of the people and their animal's diet, and it also caused the nightmare in their economy” (41).
He talks about the achievement of American foods in solving the problem of starvation throughout the Europe (p. 70)
“Even though the Indians made possible the greatest economic boom in the history of the world and even though this boom gave rise to the great capitalist world economy, they still languish in poverty.” (18)
“Southerners also adapted the custom of barbecuing food. The custom of basting fish and large pieces of meat with a special sauce and cooking them over an outdoor fire was adapted first from the Taino Indians of the island of Hispaniola.” (109)
“In a radical break with Old World tradition, the emerging government of the US emulated the Iroquois tradition of admitting new states as members rather than keeping them as colonies.” (139)
“But to find the Indian gold one must look not in the banks and museums of America but in the banks, museums, and churches of Europe.” (10)

3. “ Both parties deprecated war; but one of them would make war rather than let the nation survive; and the other would accept war rather than let it perish. And the war came.” –Abraham Lincoln Page # 60
4. “ Lincoln asked his fellow Kentuckians if he could make ‘a little speech’ about why he felt obligated to change from his inaugural promise not to interfere with slavery to his course of action leading to the Emancipation Proclamation.” Page # 81
5. “ In the days before March 4, 1865, in a federal government that was only seventy-six years old, American as well as foreign newspapers much commented that this would be the first time in thirty-two years that a president would be inaugurated for a second term.” Page # 43
6. “ Lincoln would ask his audience to think with him about the cause and meaning of the war.” Page # 59

10. “ Overwhelmed by the decisions and the death toll of the Civil War, Lincoln saw that the issues at hand would not be solved by either emancipation or armistice. As the war drew to a close, Lincoln offered his sermon as the prism through which he himself strained to see the light of God. The refractions from that prism point to judgment and hope.” Page # 203
