Answer:

It’s according to whether or not you are looking for a minor local newspaper or a national of major city newspaper. The Library of Congress provides wonderful access to Chronicling America which will have major city and national newspapers. If you are looking for a smaller local paper there are a few only options to explore or visiting your local library, archives, or state library or archives will more than likely prove beneficial although you will want to call ahead before visiting.

Question:

Should I contribute my money to a normal IRA or Roth IRA?

Answer:

While both accounts are good ideas the issue of taxes is what you will need to consider. IRAs grow with money that will be taxed when you withdraw it during retirement. However, Roth IRAs, named after a senator, grow with money that has already been taxed and will not be taxed at the time of withdrawal during retirement. Generally, Roth IRAs are seen as better options and I would highly recommend them.

Answer:

There are many causations that historians point to when working to identify the causations of the Civil War. However, amongst the top reasons are the South’s economic dependence on slavery and cotton, the issue of states rights vs federal rights which is directly related to slavery and economic stability. At the beginning of the republic issues between the South and North were growing in regards to the issue of slavery.
