I don't know what kind of "domestic labor" its talking about

10 is not D.
Domestic labor in this context probably means working as a maid, cook, gardener, etc. in someone else's home.

That' what I thought, too, Ms. Sue, but thought it could be clarified in the context of the reading materials for this course.

Reed knows more about history than I do, so I'll let him check your new answers.

Okay thank you
Read this about the Grange.
As for cattle before the Civil War, south Texas MAY be the right answer, but not really correct. Very little beef was eaten in cities before the Civil War. I THINN
THINK most cattle were on farms for milk. Most people lived on farms or in small towns before the Civil War. Cattle was not shipped to the cities because to ship it required refrigeration. The Civil War and the Transcontinental Railroad changed all that. There are several websites that address this question. During the Civil War the south Texas cattle ranching business took off. Confederate soldiers ate salt beef (like jerky).
For Texas agriculture:
This site will also help you with question 8.
On question 12, "google" the Texas Constitution of 1869 yourself. You can do it! :) Actually, state constitutions written after the Civil War were written by Radical Republicans under Reconstruction. Democrats tended to be loyal to the "old ways" and opposed many of them or many provisions in them. The specific situation in Texas I don't know about, but it was much like other former Confederate states.
Read this for teaching and women's opportunities. Medicine was largely closed to women until well into the 20th century.
Found the answers
10 and 12 are wrong.
You are still wrong on 10. Read the link I gave you about Grange. And I assume you looked up the attorney general, so are probably right. If you have not, do so.
