Scope and Sequence of our Social Studies Class 
Apart from the matter of slavery, the American Civil War arose out of both the economic and political rivalry between an agrarian South and an industrial North and the issue of the right of states to secede from the Union.

Throughout the school year, the causes of the American Civil War will be studied and then grouped by way of 3 distinct time periods: long term causes (1776-1850), short term causes (1850-1860) and immediate causes (1860-1861).

The focus of this class will then be to examine and compare these causes of the Civil War and its impact on the social, political and economic institutions of the United States.

 

Below are a couple of my favorite quotes from the Federalist Papers and past P'sOTUS. With our current state of division in the political climate of this country, I firmly believe that they are as important today as they were during the formation of our Constitution.

 

"In framing a government which is to be administered by men over men......you must first enable the government to control the governed; and in the next place, oblige it to control itself."

Federalist 51: Publius

 

"I believe there are more instances of the abridgment of the freedom of the people by gradual and silent encroachments of those in power than by violent and sudden usurpation's."

Federalist 51: Publius 

 

Past Presidents of the United States

George Washington: "If the freedom of speech is taken away, then dumb and silent we may be led, like sheep to the slaughter."

Abraham Lincoln: "Nearly all men can stand adversity, but if you want to test a man's character, give him power."

Theodore Roosevelt: "Patriotism means to stand by the country. It does not mean to stand by the president."

 

Alexander Hamilton and Thomas Jefferson arrive in Marlboro 2017-2018.
