Turning Points Final Exam

Jose Martinez



the day of September 11th 2001 was a tragic day in the history of America. Due to terrorist attacks the world trade center towers were both destroyed along with other world trade center building. The pentagon was also hit and thanks to some brave heroics from some passengers on one of the four planes one that was targeted at Washington DC was crashed into a field near shanksville Pennsylvania. 9/11 was a turning point in history because it caused a shock to the world and many citizens would be outraged that such an attack could happen on domestic soil.

although initially denying allegations to the attacks Osama bin laden later claimed to be responsible for leading the attack in 2004

19th Amendment

The 19th amendment

The 19th amendment was a long overdue process in which women would fight for die for and go trough many lengths to gain the rights that they deserved. the push for women to vote was not a new concept in the 1900's. the 1848 Seneca falls convention is one of the more well known events in history that shows the push for women's suffrage. the addition of a 19th Amendment was a turning point in history because with almost twice the amount of voters there was more diversity in votes and that would bring about many things that may have not if women were not allowed to vote.

Mexican American War

The Mexican American War

Manifest destiny was always in the minds of American settlers especially so when it came to taking over land so the could reach from sea to sea. American territorial expansion to the pacific coast was the goal of James K.

Mexican American War

Saturday, April 25th 1846 at 12am

New Mexico, Texas, California, mexico city, northern, central and eastern mexico

I believe the Mexican American war was one of the more important turning points because It can be directly linked as a cause of the civil war with all the disputes that it caused on slavery and imperialism and all the opposition it received in the states It helped spur a lot of movements and made issues that already existed more pronounced
