Lincoln And Sumner: Equality

5 pages in length. Historical documentation has poised Abraham Lincoln as one of the greatest civil liberators of America's heritage, a legacy of equality the nation's sixteenth president left his countrymen that ultimately included those with darker skin. William Graham Sumner left a legacy as well in relation to equality after he closely scrutinized the existence of and impact from America's clearly defined separation of class, a reality he argues as being the forthright reason why there has never been - and will never be - the kind of equality that defines fairness. While both men approach the concept of equality with a common denominator of being able to forge one's own path through emancipation from oppressive restraints, each has quite a different perspective on what those restraints represent, where they originate and how they impact the true quest for equality.

Legacy of Conquest/The American West

An 8 page book review on Patricia Limerick's history analysis, The Legacy of Conquest. In this book, Limerick presents a persuasive argument that disagrees with the popular conceptualization of the history of the American West. First of all, Limerick disagrees with the idea that 1890 constitutes a clear demarcation line between the nineteenth century frontier era and the modern age. She questions this "chronological line between the frontier and the modern West," as rather arbitrary and primarily motivated by the myth of the West, rather than its reality (Limerick 81). According to Limerick, popular American mythology clouds how both scholars and ordinary citizens perceive the topic of the nineteenth century frontier. No additional sources cited.
