1/21/14 social studies class

Today in Mr. Little’s class we learned about the Presidents from 1829-1861 and how the presidents died and put  new one in power. Also we started to learn about how the civil war started. First, the Missouri Compromise  in 1820. Then the Tariff of  1828  and finally the Nat Tucker Rebellion in 1831, which was a horrific event. There are more reasons why the Civil War started but this is all we know so far. Tonight’s homework is to read pages 434-437 and answer questions 3-6. Its due tomorrow.
