Answer:

The thesis serves two major functions, first as the summary of the entire paper and second as the roadmap the paper will follow as it explains the argument. The thesis statement is the important topic that you are presenting in your paper and your position within this topic. So, your thesis will serve to summarize your argument as well as guide the paper throughout its various points to ensure that it will prove your argument or thesis.

Answer:

The Berlin Conference took place in 1885 as major European nations gathered together to divide up the African continent for their own political gains. The reasons that these nations desired to colonize Africa are numerous though several stand out as key issues. The most obvious answer is that these nations desired the raw materials that Europe no longer abundantly held. The need for cheap resources to feed the growing industrial machine led nations to search out new lands of materials, with Africa being the most rich continent for such raw materials. Next, there was the desire to expand their political power on the world scale. Britain, France, Belgium, Netherlands, and a new German nation all desired to display their dominance in politics and military might as well as take potential growth away from the others. Britain did not desire to see France grow in any way, so there was a scramble to grab land that meant France could not have it. The same applies for all the European powers at play in the carving of Africa. Finally, there was a religious and educational desire for these nations as many men and women felt they were enlightening the "backwards" nations of Africa. They desired to share Christianity and western culture with them as they viewed this in terms of prosperity, growth, and true "civilization."

Answer:

The Union Army possessed several key advantages over the Confederacy that allowed them to win the war the longer it dragged on. First, their was the supply chain used by railroads to move goods all over the front at a much faster rate than the Confederates use of horseback. The Union was the location of much industrial innovation at the time, meaning the development of railroads began there as well as the construction of most factories. The Union held many factories that allowed for military innovation over the Confederacy, most notably the repeater rifle. The Union's final advantage was man-power, as the possessed a much higher population over the Confederate states that allowed them to replace fallen soldiers quicker than the Confederates. The only major advantage the southern states possessed was leadership, since almost all of their major generals were West Point students.
