What is the ethnic background of the Indian people?

User Avatar
They are Indians, however Indians in America North and South are descendants of Aryans. only When Christopher Columbus reached America he called it Indies because the kings and chieftains there he encountered in America, were all Indians who gave Columbus gifts of Jewellery and gold much found traditionally in India. Since they were not very white and were nearly red, Columbus called them Red Indians. When European nations started setting up their colonies they drove these Native Indians and settled in America after destroying their history and distorting their culture terming those Natives as not from India

Did Abraham Lincoln have any kids?

User Avatar
Yes, 3 boys. His oldest, Robert, was a Union officer during the civil war and his youngest son, Todd, died while Lincoln was President. The boys had a pet goat they kept in the White House and would use a cookie sheet to slide down the stars from the second floor to the first.

Asked in Thanksgiving, US Presidents, Abraham Lincoln

When did Thanksgiving become a national holiday?

User Avatar
President Lincoln signed a proclamation in 1863 asking "all Americans to ask God to "commend to his tender care all those who have become widows, orphans, mourners or sufferers in the lamentable civil strife" and to "heal the wounds of the nation." He made the fourth Thursday in November Thanksgiving Day. Congress would riot make Thanksgiving a national holiday until 1870. The first official US holidays were declared by Congress on June 28, 1870. New Years Day, Independence Day, Thanksgiving Day, and Christmas Day were all declared holidays in the first act. George Washington's Birthday was declared a holiday in 1871. Interesting Facts: According to Title 5 of the US Code, neither Congress or the President has the authority to declare a holiday that must be enforced by the states - Federal holidays are only applicable to Federal employees and the District of Columbia. Each state chooses which holidays it will recognize. QUOTE: "The act of June 28, 1870, which was apparently prompted by a memorial drafted by local "bankers and business men," provided that New Year's Day, Independence Day, Christmas Day, and "any day appointed or recommended by the President of the United States as a day of public fasting or thanksgiving [were] to be holidays within the District." This legislation was drafted "to correspond with similar laws of States around the District,"3 and "in every State of the Union."

...was moderate on the slavery issue, and had not yet started to worry about Britain planning to send aid to the Confederates. (The Emancipation Proclamation was issued mainly to prevent this.) Like most people, he thought it would be a short war.
Asked in Abraham Lincoln, Assassinations and Assassination Attempts, John Wilkes Booth

Did John Wilkes Booth act alone in the assassination of President Lincoln or did others conspire him?

User Avatar
He had several accomplices: David Herald, Lewis Payne (AKA: Lewis Powell), George Atzerodt, and perhaps Mary Surratt, who's trial prejudice is still a matter of debate today. 2nd respondent There were hundreds working separately to kill Lincoln. Note: David Harold, George Atzerodt and Mary Surratt had nothing to do with the killing of Lincoln. David Harold and Lewis Payne tried to kill Secretary of State Seward. David Harold joined up with Booth 30 minutes after Booth killed Lincoln. Mary Surratt was executed but there is no proof that she conspired to kill Lincoln.

What caused Lincoln to become dissatisfied with general mcclellans common?

User Avatar
Secretary of War, Edwin Stanton, did everything he could to delay the progress of the war. He delayed recruitment and he delayed supplies for the troops. He ordered troop movement in muddy conditions when wagons and horses would get bogged down The increased death count would generate hate for the south. This hatred for the south would demand punishment and Stanton could declare Martial law. Under Martial law, Stanton could confiscate property and other assets, making himself rich. Lincoln trusted Stanton more than General McClellan. That trust cost the country 100,000's of lives.   General B. McClellan made the following complaint about Stanton. "adjutant-General's Office U. S. A. Never in the whole history of nations was anything more absurdly and recklessly managed than the whole system of recruiting, drafting, and organization under the regime of Secretary Stanton. When his actions are coolly criticized, apart from the influence of party feeling, his administration will be regarded as unparalleled in history for blunders and ignorant self-assertion. He unnecessarily prolonged the war at least two years, and at least tripled its cost in blood and treasure. General B. McClellan" (George B. McCellan, McCellan's Own Story, Charles Webster & Co. 1897 P229)
Asked in US Presidents, Abraham Lincoln, Mount Rushmore

Why were Washington Jefferson Lincoln and Roosevelt chosen for Mount Rushmore?

User Avatar
The four US Presidents on Mount Rushmore were chosen by Gutzon Borglum to commemorate the founding, growth, preservation and development of the U.S. They symbolize the principles of liberty and freedom on which the nation was founded. Each of the four Presidents made important contributions to the US and that is why they were chosen for the sculpture on Mount Rushmore. --- George Washington, (1st president) led the early colonial army in the American Revolutionary War to win independence from Great Britain. Because of his importance and his role in creating the United States, Washington is the most prominent figure on the mountain. (1732-1799) Thomas Jefferson, (3rd president) he was the author of the Declaration of Independence, a document which inspires democracies around the world. He also purchased the Louisiana Territory from France in 1803 which doubled the size of our country, adding all or part of fifteen present-day states. (1743-1826) Abraham Lincoln, (16th president) held the nation together during its greatest trial, the Civil War. Lincoln believed his most sacred duty was the preservation of the union. His efforts put an end to slavery. (1809-1865). Theodore Roosevelt, (26th president) provided leadership when America experienced rapid economic growth as it entered the 20th Century. He was instrumental in negotiating the construction of the Panama Canal, linking the east and the west. He was known as the "trust buster" for his work to end large corporate monopolies and ensure the rights of the common working man. He is also the leading land conservationist in world history, setting aside over 230 million acres for conservation purposes.

How did Abraham Lincoln die?

User Avatar
Abraham Lincoln was the first president to die of assassination. He was shot in the back of his head by John Wilkes Booth, a well-known actor and Confederate spy from Maryland. Lincoln was assassinated at Ford's Theatre in Washington, D.C. where he and his wife were attending the play Our American Cousin on April 14, 1865, which was Good Friday. Lincoln was shot once, at point blank range, at approximately 10:15 PM. Once he was shot, he was carried from the theatre to a boarding house across the street from the theatre. He remained in a comatose state for more than 8 hours. Many doctors offered to help, and some examined the President, but there was ultimately nothing to be done, as the bullet was lodged deep in the President's brain. He died at approximately 7:22 AM the following morning, April 15, 1865. He was shot in a theatre by an assasin Lincoln was assassinated. (Murdered) He was shot in the back of the head, almost at point-blank range, by John Wilkes Booth at Ford's Theatre in Washington DC.

Why was Abraham Lincoln assassinated?

User Avatar
His assassin, John Wilkes Booth, was a Southern sympathizer and he hoped that the death of Lincoln, VP Johnson and Secrertary of State Seward (all of whom were targeted to die the night Lincoln was killed) would throw the Union government into such turmoil that the South would be inspired to win the war. But this would have been wildly improbable after Lee's surrender 5 days earlier. President Lincoln was killed because the conspirators, especially John Wilkes Booth, were angry at how the Civil War was fought and the fact that General Ulysses S. Grant stopped the prisoner-of-war exchange toward the end of the war. Booth was an ardent supporter of slavery and thought the South should have been left alone. Booth hated Lincoln and what he stood for, and was distraught by the destruction the war wreaked on the South. Before General Robert E. Lee surrendered, Booth had planned to kidnap Lincoln, hoping he could be exchanged for Confederate prisoners or even end the conflict.
