Description:

This paper briefly analyzes some of the achievements in America during the twentieth century, including social as well as scientific achievements.

From the Paper:

"During the twentieth century, the United States has expanded and better clarified the civil rights of its citizens. It has passed laws that prohibit discrimination on the basis of gender, race, and religious beliefs. The Federal Civil Rights Act of 1964 prohibited the discrimination of people based upon race, gender, and religion in businesses that serve the public. It also awarded the people the right to not bear arms in times of war, known as conscientious objection, based on religious or personal beliefs. The Voting Rights Act of 1965 gave protected minorities the right to vote by nullifying several state laws that prohibited that action. Congress passed these laws in hope that equality among the races, genders, and religions could be achieved."
