INTRODUCTION

Going through life ignoring history is such an easy thing to do when you find yourself totally uninterested in such a topic. However, as a girl strives toward becoming a woman, understanding history becomes essential to understanding who she is and who she wishes to become. With no understanding of the past, it is impossible to understand where you are going. Coming into an understanding of revolution, reaction and reform from a history standpoint,  learning how to embrace and apply them to your life will only build your self-worth and make you stronger.

Starting 1850 $1000 fine was to be envoked
