This system was implemented on May 20, 1785. It was a standardized system that allowed settlers to purchase farmland in the wide areas in the undeveloped west. It was the land policy, until another act was approved, the Homestead Act in 1862. The system was developed with special diagrams and an organized distribution. This was to ensure an orderly system of development in the Northwest Territory.

Ultimately, this led to better development of the area and a refined and orderly population development, instead of the disordered havoc that could have resulted otherwise. The proposed arrangement consisted of seven north to south rows of township, which were declared open for settlement.

Correct answer is option A
The Congress brought impeachment proceedings against Andrew Johnson primarily because he sought to block the punitive aspects of Congressional Reconstruction.

Before Abraham Lincoln was assassinated, he had formulated a plan of reconstruction that would be lenient on the defeated South as it re-joined the Union. Johnson was intent on carrying out this plan when he assumed presidency. This didn’t sit well with some so called Radical Republicans in the Congress, who wanted to set up military governments

The political backing to begin impeachment proceedings against Johnson came when he breached the Tenure of Office Act by removing Edwin Stanton, Secretary of War, from cabinet. He was impeached on February 24, 1868 by the House of Representatives.

We take cheap sugar for granted these days, but back in the 18th century it was the most tremendous luxury. The Sugar Act was also called the Revenue Act because it provided increased revenues to fund enlarged British Empire responsibilities following the French and Indian War.

Being a luxury, there was a keen smuggling trade in sugar and molasses from the French and Dutch West Indies that Britain wanted to end. The earlier, Molasses Act of 1733 being ineffective, the Sugar Act aimed for strong customs enforcement of the duties on refined sugar and molasses imported into the colonies.

After the overthrow of the Democratic Government in Cuba in 1959 by the communist forces led by Fidel Castro, the small island country was instantly put in the middle of the cold war chaos. The island nation of Cuba is just miles away from the US mainland, the epicenter of the fight against communism. The coup took place when Franklin D. Eisenhower was the president and is considered by many pundits for the reason he didn't stand for another term. So, now there was a hostile communist nation just miles away from the US.

A plan was devised in the last days of the Eisenhower administration to overthrow the Fidel regime in Cuba. The plan was made along with CIA, US military, Pentagon officials and other high ranking US government officials. The key aspect of the plan was that under no situation the overthrow of Castro should look as American military action and should rather be portrayed as a revolution by the Cuban exiles. Hence no US military installations/equipment should be used in the invasion of Cuba. Due to administrative hurdles, the strategy couldn't be executed under Eisenhower term and Kennedy was briefed on the plan. The Kennedy brothers were keen on overthrowing the Castro and hence gave the plan green signal.

The invasion would take place by approx. 3000 exiled anti-Castro Cubans from the South American country of Nicaragua. According to the strategy devised the run-up for the invasion would take place on September 15, 1960, misleading the Cubans about the exact location of the starting point of the invasion.However, even in the beginning, the CIA got the intuition that Cubans are much well prepared than they previously thought as the Cuban Expeditionary Force (CEF) ended up losing their key vessels in the run-up. On 17 September, the actual day of the invasion the CEF lost their communication tools in the beginning, which hindered their capability of a coordinated response to Castro militias. Due to this, a major chunk of the CEF was destroyed in the beginning and the air cover then had was also mostly ineffective as they were not able to coordinate with the ground forces for the strategic bombing locations.
Therefore, the "Bay of Pigs" mission to invade Cuba had a humiliating end with a large number of casualties on both sides and a decisive Castro regime victory. The director of CIA along with deputy director resigned in the follow-up days of the invasion as an outfall of the failed invasion.

Exports fluctuated between 1804 and 1815. The losses can be compared with the gains.
