In a brief summary, how did the Civil war end and when did this happen?

Discuss this question

Question found in History In General
On November 6, 1860 Abraham Lincoln was elected President of the United States -- an event that outraged southern states. The Republican party had run on an anti-slavery platform, and many southerners felt that there was no longer a place for them in the Union. On December 20, 1860, South Carolina seceded. By February 1, 1861, six more states -- Mississippi, Florida, Alabama, Georgia, Louisiana, and Texas -- had split from the Union. The seceded states created the Confederate States of America and elected Jefferson Davis, a Mississippi Senator, as their provisional president.

In his inaugural address, delivered on March 4, 1861, Lincoln proclaimed that it was his duty to maintain the Union. He also declared that he had no intention of ending slavery where it existed, or of repealing the Fugitive Slave Law -- a position that horrified African Americans and their white allies. Lincoln's statement, however, did not satisfy the Confederacy, and on April 12 they attacked Fort Sumter, a federal stronghold in Charleston, South Carolina. Federal troops returned the fire. The Civil War had begun.

After a fairly quiet first year, three very bloody years of fighting followed.
Finally, on April 18, 1865, the Civil War ended with the surrender of the Confederate army. The southern landscape was devastated. The war produced more than 970,000 casualties (3 percent of the population), including approximately 560,000 deaths.

A new chapter in American history opened as the Thirteenth Amendment, passed in January of 1865, was implemented. It abolished slavery in the United States.

What is the average amount of goals based on past statistics that is usually enough to win the Golden Boot in the World Cup and how often does the player come from the winning team?

Discuss this question

Question found in World Cup 2006
The Golden Boot award was introduced from 1982 World Cup. Since then 7 players have won this much valued prize.

In 1982 Spain World cup Paolo Rossi of Italy scored a total of 6 goals, and was awarded the Golden Boot.

In 1986 Mexico World cup Gary Lineker of England with 6 Goals, In 1990 Italy World Cup Salvatore Schillaci of Italy with 6 Goals, In 1994 USA World Cup Hristo Stoitchkov of Bulgaria and Oleg Salenko of Russia both with 6 Goals, In
1998 France World Cup Davor Šuker of Croatia with 6 Goals and in 2002 Korea/Japan World Cup Ronaldo of Brazil with 8 Goals were the other Winners of this Award.

From the above information it is evident that except in the 2002 WC were Ronaldo scored 8 Goals, all other Award Winners Scored 6 Goals Each.


Now about the connection between Award Winner's and the Cup Winning Teams, I think the below given table will get you the answer

In 1982 Italy won the World Cup and Paolo Rossi was from Italy.

In 1986 Argentina won the World Cup but the Winner, Gary Linekar was from England.

In 1990 West Germany won the World Cup but Italian, Schillaci Won the Award(Italy got 3rd Place).

In 1994 Brazil won the World Cup but both the player's who shared Golden Boot that year were from other teams.

In 1998 France won the World Cup but Davor Šuker of Croatia was the Golden Boot Winner.

In 2002 Brazil won the World Cup and Ronaldo of Brazil was the Golden Boot Winner.

So out of the 7 players who won the Golden Boot, only two were from the Team who won the world cup.
