Woodrow Wilson was a lawyer, an educator, and a politician. He was an advocate for reform in education and at all levels of government.

Robert E. Lee
Robert E. Lee was considered by many to be an amazing man of character, determination, and talent. Confederate President Jefferson Davis hired him as his assistant for the war. Soon he was commanding the Army of Northern Virginia, and he commanded until his men could fight no more. In the end, he resigned with dignity and asked his men to do the same.

Congress passed the Indian Removal Act in 1830 with the intent of moving five large tribes to Indian Territory. The tribes could either move to the reservations or assimilate. As settlers kept moving west, more and more tribes were encountered, and all ultimately found themselves going to reservations. This new way of life was a vast change for the Indians.
Immigrants from all over Europe flocked to America, bringing their hopes and their dreams with them. The influx of immigrants enriched the American culture but also provided challenges to the United States.
Martin Luther King Jr.
