This article is from Topeka Kansas, which I don’t completely view as a part of the south; however it does have a very positive view to Victoria Woodhull. The article uses words like wonderful and remarkable when discussing Woodhull.

I find it very interesting how similar these two speeches are. It seems almost like those “Spot the differences” pictures we would do as kids. With words like People and Government being the two most used words in both speeches which shows Cleveland’s values in government. Cleveland’s first speech (left) mainy focuses on the words “Government” and “People” which shows the focus of the Cleveland adminstration. The second speech (Middle) repeats many of the points of the first with the 2 largest words being “People” and “Government” yet again. This shows the similarity between the 2 Inaugural adresses given by Cleveland. The word cloud on the right mixes the 2 speeches into 1 and it shows the similarity between the two speeches as it is also nearly identical to the 2 speech word clouds. I received the Inaugural addresses from here: 3 Inaugural Addresses | The American Presidency Project (ucsb.edu)

In this game you play as Senator Joseph McCarthy during the Red Scare in the 1940s, trying to determine which of the suspects are Russian Operatives. Can you save America? For this game I used twine to build the actual game, then used Wikimedia to find all the images for the game itself. This game is a satirical comment on the insanity and the paranoia of the time. The image above is from the first version of this game. Click on the link above, download, then open Twine and upload the file and enjoy!
