After having served as a state representative, in 1952, the city of Clayton elected him as circuit court judge. (Riechers, 2003) It should be noted that while he was judge, Wallace was quite lenient towards the poor and the black man. In 1958 Wallace ran in his first gubernatorial race. Although he supported segregation, he also had support from the NAACP. He would be defeated by John Patterson whose campaign “was openly racist and played into the fears of white Southerners.” (Riechers, 2003)

William Barret Travis was born in South Carolina to Mark and Jemima Travis as the oldest of 11 children. The actual date of his birth is not clearly known, but it was some time early in August of 1809. Travis spent his childhood working on the family farm, being home-schooled, playing with local children, and attending church. The family moved to Alabama in 1818 where they helped establish two different communities. He attended an academy in Sparta until he learned everything the school had to offer. At the insistence of his uncle, he moved to Claiborne to help teach younger students and met Rosanna Cato whom he later married. While there, Travis met and became an apprentice to the community’s leading attorney, James Dellet. Travis and Rosanna had a son in 1829 and were expecting another child when he began suspecting his wife of infidelity and doubted that he was the father of the unborn baby. It is believed that he killed the man suspected of being the father of the baby. Because of these family issues, Travis abandoned his wife and family and went to Texas.
After the expense of WWI and a retreat from the policy of isolationism that had led America into it, American people were ready to focus on themselves. They wanted to build up the American economy and stay uninvolved in foreign affairs, following similar ideals as the Monroe Doctrine. The toll of WWI led to the U.S. isolationist policy, but as the years went on and war drew closer, this policy became near impossible. Isolationism for many years allowed the U.S. to focus on its own financial problems and with the great depression, this was pivotal. Another reason for isolationism was that both the Democratic and Republican parties promoted it. In theory this isolationist policy made sense with the current state of affairs in the U.S., but the the U.S. had become too much of a world power to withdraw completely. During the Period from 1920-1941 the foreign policy of the U.S. can be divided into three sections: the early twenties and a relatively strict isolationism, the late twenties and thirties and more and more involvement, and then finally WWII and the declaration of war by America on Japan and eventually on Germany and Italy.
Garner was elected as a Democrat to the United States House of Representatives in 1902 from a newly created congressional district covering tens of thousands of square miles of rural South Texas. He was elected from the district fourteen subsequent times, serving until 1933.
Soon after graduating from Yale, he became a law professor at the University of Arkansas. He did not stay in one place for long though, and in 1978 he became the Attorney General of Arkansas. From this political position, he moved higher up in the ranks and in 1978 won the election for the gubernatorial seat of Arkansas. In the 1980 elections, however, William (Bill) was defeated by Republican Frank White. As the youngest governor of Arkansas in 40 years, Bill then became the youngest ex-governor in United States history. During the interim, Clinton was hired by the law firm Wright, Lindsey and Jennings. In the 1982 elections, Mr. Clinton went after the position of governor with renewed vigor and defeated incumbent Republican Frank White. During the campaigning for the election a Time magazine article stated: “If Clinton does win, it could seem like less a comeback than a canny mid-course correction in the path of a young, bright political star.”
In the colonization period, the urge to conquer foreign territories was strong, and many lands in the Western Hemisphere were conquered. With the colonization of these areas, a mercantilist relationship was formed between the conquered civilization and the maternal country. A major part of this was the restriction of exportation of native resources only to the mother country as well as the banning of trading with colonies of other countries. In turn, there was an increasing in the number of smuggling activities during the time. According to a British sailor named William Taggart in 1760, the illegal smuggling of goods into these areas had a positive impact because it brought prosperity to the people in Monte Christi, as there were only one hundred poor families. Likewise, Dominica governor John Orde praised the trading because it created prices much lower than with its maternal country. However, British admiral David Tyrell, Roger Elletson, Dominica governor John Orde, and a 1790 Bahaman newspaper report all had similar views on the harmful effects and corruptness present in smuggling. Despite this, physician George Lipscomb and British Lieutenant Governor Thomas Bruce had neutral opinions on the matter, and only stated what they witnessed in the process.
In 1898, at his wife's urging, Warren G. Harding embarked on a political career. That year, he won a seat in the Ohio legislature, and subsequently served two terms. According to his congressional voting record, he missed two-thirds of the votes held during his tenure as senator, including the vote on women's suffrage—a cause that he strongly supported.
The election of John Adams in 1796 was to be the first contested election in the United States. Adams, a young politician and political philosopher, had viewed himself as the natural heir to the executive throughout the Washington presidency (White House). After the Federalists caucused and determined Adams and Thomas Pinckney as their candidates and the Democratic-Republicans chose Thomas Jefferson and Aaron Burr as their candidates, the campaigning began (University of Virginia, 1796).
One of Lincoln's first opponents was Douglas, they were running for U.S. Senate. Douglas was a two-term Senator with a great background and Lincoln was self-educated and only had one term in Congress. The odds were stacked against Lincoln's "vast moral evil" of slavery, he started to make more Republicans like him, and they thought he would be great for the Presidency in 1860. Besides Lincoln who was running was J.C. Breckinridge (Southern Democrat). John Bell (Constitutional Union) and Stephen Douglas (Northern Democrat). Lincoln won the Presidency with 180 electoral votes and 1,865,593 popular votes.
