This brings up questions that will be answered in this paper. Should slaves be American citizens? Is it morally correct for one to own another human? Does the Dred Scott decision contradict The Declaration of Independence which states that every man is created equal?
Todd Bowles uses a hybrid defense scheme. Utilizing both 3-4 and 4-3 defensive fronts. Bowles likes to use his outside linebackers to blitz and try and get after the quarterback. The middle linebackers are used as run defenders and covering TE, RB and sometimes slot receivers. Bowles likes to dial up exotic blitzes to try and fool the QB and disguise where the blitz is actually coming from. In Bowles’ scheme he likes to use large lengthy cornerbacks to play man coverage on the outside and in the slot. Bowles’ defense is dependent on having cornerbacks who have the ability to play in man coverage and play press coverage and disrupt the receivers routes on the line of scrimmage to enable the pass rushers the chance to get to the QB quickly. Bowles likes to have a big strong outsider backer who can play on the strong side and set the edge for running plays. The weak side backer is smaller

Throughout his childhood Logan (Tachnechdorus) attained advantageous values and social etiquette. One particular influential ally was a Quaker identified as James Logan who not only provided Tachnechdorus with his name but also educated him until he befriended the future war leader . However, it was after one unprovoked fatal incident involving other settlers that Logan, who once considered the white people as his allies, quickly changed his opinion of them. Hostility erupted within this once diplomatic, unbiased and compassionate man. Recognizing the conflict among the two cultures became the major cause of Logan to take vengeance.
William Johnson was born a slave in the year 1809 but was freed by his owner, probably his father in 1820. His owner had earlier released William’s sister and mother. William Johnson upon being freed became a barber apprentice in Natchez town. William’s brother-in-law had a barbershop which he took over in 1830 and later on got married to Amy Battles. They had eleven children. Amy was a free person and just like William was black (National Humanities Center Resource Toolbox, 2007). William Johnson went on to operate several barbershops, owned land, and rented buildings. He also had a bathhouse and regularly loaned white and black people money which was paid at an interest. Like other free blacks in the South, William Johnson owned slaves and at times sold them too. The diary is a record of his daily personal endeavors, majorly about the payment of his debts, the items he bought and the running of his family. William was murdered by a free black man, Baylor Winn, with whom they had a boundary conflict. Despite his murderer being identified, he escaped prosecution since according to his evidence, he was a white man, and so no black man could testify against him (Humanities Center Resource Toolbox, 2007).

Take a dive into the dark stuff. Sure, stout beer looks like a glass full of ink, but don't let that sway you. The black, opaque appearance might be intimidating, but stouts are actually smooth and — surprise! — not very strong. In fact, they're often lower in alcohol than typical American lagers. Because stouts have less carbon dioxide than other beers, they're less carbonated and have a creamy texture that makes them highly drinkable.
