Richard IIIRichard III Much debate and controversy surround the rise and fall of Richard the Third.

Cotton?s Impact On The United States Before The Civil WarCotton?s Impact on the United States Before the Civil War With the end of the War of 1812, few people in the United States envisioned a civil war in the future.
