About the Berlin Wall
Before the Berlin Wall was created, Berlin was separated into East Berlin and West Berlin. Each territory was owned by different countries. West Berlin was controlled by France, England, and the United States. East Berlin was controlled by the Soviet Union. West Berlin was in worst conditions than East Berlin. The Berlin wall was created because multiple Eastern Berliners were crossing the border into West Berlin. So many people crossed the border that the East Berlin government was worried about their population, so they decided to create the wall and prevent people from emigrating.
What We Believe
We Believe that the Berlin Wall did greatly affect the United States because of the tension between the United States and Soviet Union. There was so much tension between them it could have continued the war and maybe it could have lasted so long that the two sides could get more allies into the war and start another world war. Also the fall of the wall united Berlin and eventually Germany was united. With this the United States was able to trade with another area, and it might have also gave the United States the ability to trade with counties in that area. So the United States benefited from the Berlin wall, and maybe have prevent another world war.
