Feb. 7- Feb. 13 | Week Vlog.

HIST 1302 exam #1 | review

Reconstruction: 1865-1877
  • presidential reconstruction: 1st reconstruction plan
-since Abraham Lincoln believes that there is no such thing as secession, the confederates were still Amer. citizens w rights
-10 % plan: when 10% of the WHITE men who voted in 1860 swear a loyalty oath to the U.S. constitution, reconstruction can end
-implemented by Andrew Johnson bc Lincoln was assassinated 
-3 categories of men who cannot sign^/have no rights: 
  1. high ranking confederate politicians/officers
  2. men who abandoned Amer. positions to fight for confederates (traitors)
  3. confederate soldiers who don't treat captured black union troops as prisoners of war (meaning they kill them instead of just keeping them)
  4. wealthy planters (bc they would have 20+ slaves & the civil war was fought over slavery) (added by Andrew Johnson)
*same men (who led the confederacy) are being elected into office. ex. Alexander Stephens (who falls into the 1st category above, was the vice president of confederacy) becomes a senator (bc Johnson pardoned him) 
  • congressional reconstruction: led by Congress (where radical Republicans are)
-secession happened, confederacy was separated & CONQUERED- -> not Amer. citizens= no rights
-since it was conquered, Congress gets to decide what to do w the territory --> military districts (1866-1877)/ martial law to stop violence
-territories had to go through re-admission process to be a state again:
  1. write a new constitution
  2. in it, black & white men get the right to vote (except for the ones in the categories above)
  3. hold elections
  4. black men can hold political office
  5. pass the Amendment XIV (people born in the U.S. = citizens, can't refuse them the right to vote)
  • conditions & experiences of African Americans:
Amendment XIII abolishes slavery
*confederate states pass black codes: restricts rights for blacks
^black adults must sign a labor contract w a white person (basically slavery)
*violence (to ensure white supremacy)- Ku Klux Klan
^Memphis Race Riot 1866: black Amer. veterans move to Memphis, not accepted by white community. laws passed so that they have to surrender their guns --> whites attacked them
-covert racism: Radical republicans believed that black men & women should have the same political & economic rights but not social equality 
*things that upset the north, leading to congressional reconstruction
-black men voting for republican party
-Amendments XIV & XV (right to vote can't be denied by race/color/etc.)
-reconstruction ends (in most states)--> troops leave --> KKK reappears w Democratic resurgence
-Compromise of 1877: Democrats go to Rutherford Hayes (republican) & offers to help him win if he ends reconstruction & doesn't enforce amendments XIV & XV 
-exoduster movement 1877-78: Benjamin Singleton (exoduster leader) wants blacks to go north, Southern whites passed unconstitutional state law where blacks can't go on riverboats

-now that they're free:
African- Amer. churches bc diff. messages emphasized
find families that they were separated from by slavery
^marriage so that they now have a legal contract w their spouse
find a job: farm work bc they don't have many other skills
find land/housing
^"40 acres & a mule" if they have land, they can take care of themselves (but whites won't sell them land bc that means loss of power)
get educated: Freedman's Bureau Schools where radical republicans teach literacy & numeracy skills (so they can argue their own labor contracts)
  • development of sharecropping:
-labor contracts: blacks are given land & have to grow cotton for whites & they get 40% share of the crop. provided "housing" but not food, clothes, medicine. those bills are paid by the whites taking $ out of the 40% to pay to other whites (leads to a cycle of debt/crop lien system)

-why do they do it?
bc no choice: no other skills or land
have a sharecropper house where they can raise their family the way they want
gives hope, if you don't go into debt, maybe you can buy land one day

economic changes in the Gilded Age: 1865-1900
  • how did corporate practices change in these years?
  1.  money/capital: sell stock to investors to make $ (stock= owner, separating ownership & control). limited liability: only lose what you invested. created by federal government
  2. management structure: manager oversees workers (growing middle class)
  3. cost accounting: double entry bookkeeping, important to know unit cost bc competition
  4. continuous flow techniques: stockyards. object/good constantly worked on to maximize work
  • what role did the railroads play?
  1. 1st big business: Pennsylvania Railroad company employs a lot of people
  2. consumers of material: need lumber/timber, coal, steel
  3. national markets are created: sell same items at the same prices. ex. The Great Atlantic & Pacific Tea Company
  4. railroads open the west: bring farmers west & produce east
  5. improved communication: telegraph wires & telephone lines to prevent train crashes
  6. railroad time zones become standardized
  • what role did monopolies play?
  1. economies of scale (company is so large, i can control aspects of production) horizontal & vertical integration
  2. can set/control prices
  3. can set/control costs (of buying materials)
  4. can set/control wages
  • how did work change in these years?
  1. depersonalized relations: owners don't know everyone personally
  2. division of labor: break jobs into pieces, everyone does one part of the job

-American Federation of labor (1886): only skilled workers (mostly white men), ideas of Business unionism & membership-collective bargaining (bargain for all to work at same wage)

-Homestead strike 1892: Andrew Carnegie gets Henry Clay Frick to break ^union & drive down wages--> union goes on strike--> Frick hires Pinkertons (hired army)--> union blocks bridge that they have to cross, gets them to go onshore--> got women to beat them up to humiliate them--> sent in militia bc they were using violence--> got injunction for workers to go back to work

-pullman sleeping car factory 1894: depression--> decrease in wages --> workers can't afford anything (lived in a company town & expenses didn't decrease)--> Eugene Debs realized if workers strike, no one  cares--> railway workers on strike on behalf of pullman car workers--> trains get shut down in many states--> companies need to get president involved --> attached mail car to pullman cars = refusal to work on them is breaking federal law--> president supports companies w U.S. military & injunctions

chúc mừng năm mới!

guys! it's Tết Nguyên Đán (better known as "Tet") which means "Feast of the first morning".
did ya'll see the snapchat filter for lunar new year bc it's cute & it has a monkey (year of the monkey).


i got some lì xì ("lucky money") from tntt yesterday & from my parents today.
i kind of miss celebrating Tet in MD w all of my family though. all of the kids would line up from youngest to oldest in front of the grandparents & say greetings & wishes. 
wishes are things like wishing them to live up to 100 yrs old, wishing them security, good health, flowing money, prosperity, etc. then the adults would give the children lì xì. 
we also would play bingo or bầu cua cá cọp (which you can see below).



i wore this panda ring (that my friend from MD gave me as a present) today just bc Tet = red & gold.



one of my favorite things about Tet (or any holiday really) is FOOD. who doesn't love food? 
i'm not a HUGE fan of Vietnamese food- i'm pretty Americanized- but one thing that i've always loved since i was little is bánh tét (fried bánh tét above^). 

ok that is all really bc i could go over the history of Tet or you could just wiki it like i would~ 
happy vietnamese/lunar/chinese new year!

We Don't Talk Anymore by Charlie Puth ft. Selena Gomez


guysss. i know this song has been out for at least a week but i am just hearing it now & i wanted to share it bc i really like it. i don't listen to Charlie Puth all that much but what i've heard of his voice on the radio is amazing. also, you guys know that i love love love love Selena Gomez right? 
Charlie Puth's amazing voice + Selena Gomez's killer vocals = eargasms all around. 

so this is a kind of break up song called "We Don't Talk Anymore" w a chill vibe & maybe the lyrics aren't too deep but the verses are still pretty relatable. 

"I just heard you found the one you’ve been looking
You’ve been looking for
I wish I would have known that wasn’t me
‘Cause even after all this time I still wonder
Why I can’t move on
Just the way you did so easily
Don’t wanna know
What kind of dress you’re wearing tonight
If he’s holding onto you so tight
The way I did before
I overdosed
Should’ve known your love was a game
Now I can’t get you out of my brain"

"I just hope you’re lying next to somebody
Who knows how to love you like me
There must be a good reason that you’re gone
Every now and then I think you
Might want me to come show up at your door
But I’m just too afraid that I’ll be wrong
Don’t wanna know
If you’re looking into her eyes
If she’s holding onto you so tight the way I did before
I overdosed
Should’ve known your love was a game
Now I can’t get you out of my brain
Oh, it’s such a shame"

just so you guys know, i'm not really a sports fan. at all. 
however, my friend Kevin is, apparently. he asked me to draw him something for his birthday.
correction: he asked me to draw Tom Brady for his birthday.
now, lemme tell you right now- i don't know much about Tom Brady. 
i know his name is Thomas Edward Patrick Brady Jr. & he's 6'4", a quarterback for the New England Patriots.
(jk i didn't really know that, i just wiki'd him)
but i guess all of that doesn't matter bc a drawing is a drawing.
so here is my attempt at drawing Tom Brady:
