In the 1896 election, the success rate was much higher. William Jennings Bryan managed to secure over 6.5 million votes, which is 176 electoral votes. This compared to the previous election results is an extremely good result. This shows the huge backing the Populists have gained since the 92’ elections. The majority of the voters were from the south and west of the States, which is where much of the rural land was, also, McKinley won the east and north, which is where the big business was, and where the majority of his support was.

The outcomes of these are considered a significant part of British history and play a key role in future events such as world war 1. Firstly the welfare reforms were extremely significant and could be argued that they were down to the liberal party. Source 5 talks about the liberal’s rise to power in 1906 when it says ‘The liberal government’s legislative programme indicated that at last the thorny problem of physical consequences of poverty was being tackled in earnest’ In the General Election of January 1906 the Liberals swept to victory in a landslide result, which saw the party win 400 seats. Henry Campbell Bannerman capitalised on the unpopularity of the previous Tory administration, which had been replaced by his new Liberal government in December 1905. The link between the liberal party and the welfare reforms is that all the social reforms in Britain were under the Liberal government.
His attempt to revive the Roman Empire was a successful one, both in terms of power and longevity. Justinian’s legacy would be that of the most successful Emperor of the Byzantine Empire. The empire expanded under Justinian because of his ability to pick exceptional advisors. The men that he gave power to owed this to him, and were very loyal. Despite many periods of financial and military crisis where the empire faced threats from all sides, it always managed to come through, often due to the Emperor’s advisors.
Popular enthusiasm for the Second Boer War Britain really did rule the waves throughout the 1900 century. By the start of the Second Boer War, Britain controlled a quarter of the Earth’s land surface, largely controlled the Earth’s oceans with her vast fleet and London was the finical capital of the world. The second Boer War started with huge popular enthusiasm, in fact the patriotic fervour reached a climax with the news of the Relief of Mafeking in May 1900. Nevertheless, the tide was about to turn. Towards the end of the war however, people had problems with supporting the war when there was national problems which should be dealt with instead of the war.

He later earned the name Frederick the Great due to his many accomplishments. Frederick the Great is also known as an “enlightened despot” because he supported the progressive ideas and reforms of the period of history called the “Enlightenment.” Frederick II was the son of Frederick William, ruler of Prussia. At a young age, Frederick William made sure that his son was trained in the art of war, but Frederick II had little interest in learning.
Roosevelt did much to preserve our nation’s national resources, and passed many new federal regulations while bringing big business to justice. During his tenure in office, Roosevelt also won the Nobel Peace Prize twice, one in 1905 and again in

This would lead to a civil war that would last from February 1918 until November of 1920. The Reds emerged victorious from this war over the anti-Bolshevik Whites, a feat that would serve to contribute to the consolidation of Soviet power. This essay will examine several of the most notable reasons for this victory. Perhaps the most decisive factor in this war was a Red army that was vastly superior to the Whites in numbers as well as weaponry. The Reds relentlessly employed superior military technique, but also were able to win over a far greater number of people through their innovative and attractive land policies.
