Why is the constitution important?
The constitution does three important things; it divides the government into three branches, separates the powers of the federal and state government, and also protects the rights of the American citizens. The constitution is important because i sets up the system of government. It provides a system of checks and balances designed to keep one branch from having too much power over another. It also divides the power between the national government and the state governments, so that neither one can have more power over the other. The constitution is also important because it protects basic rights of Americans.

What led to the start of World War I?
The escalation of rivalries between Austria-Hungary and Serbia continued to worsen, until a Serbian terrorist group known as the Black Hand made plans to assassinate Archduke Franz Ferdinand. The terrorists group success in 1914 was the catalyst that causes Serbia and Austria-Hungary to go war. The two countries recruited countries to help them. Serbia recruits Russia, France, England, Belgium, Italy, Australia, Japan, and eventually the Unites States, which makes up the Allied powers.. And Austria-Hungary recruits Germany, the Ottoman Empire, and Bulgaria, which makes up the Central Powers.

Explain why the U.S. Economy crashed and led to the Depression in 1929.
The New York Stock Exchange, or Wall Street, lacked regulatory authority and when European investors pulled out their investments it led to a crash, where 30 billion dollars went up in smoke. The U.S. had a weak banking system. It was unregulated (used depositor's money for speculation). Factories became mechanized, causing people to lose their jobs and unemployment to rise. Housing started to fall in 1927, and continued to fall for years to come. Overexpansion of industries hurt the economy. Lack of economic expertise within the government (Government officials not regulating the economy and the stock market like they should have been). Combine all of these separate issues, and was one great recipe for disaster which led to the Great Depression in America.
