When he became president he wanted to get rid of paper money, he hated it. Think about it for a minute, if he hated paper money, why should he be on it? He made the removal act against Indians in 1832. The Cherokee felt betrayed because they fought alongside Jackson. He forced them and almost all other Indians to move west.
This ws very accurate because, during the war most of the men went to fight, so the women and children had to do most of the work. About a year later they found our that his dad had died on a prison ship. Some troops from the rebel army came to stay in their town for the winter. Sam was among these troops. Some soldiers took their cows and blamed it on Sam.
Columbus Day is celebrated in recognition of Columbus “discovering” America in 1492. Many consider him a hero for that one reason but don’t acknowledge what he did when he first reached America. I personally believe Columbus is not worthy of being called a hero for various reasons. One of the reasons is that Columbus killed millions of native Americans because of his lust for gold. The native Americans were kind and generous towards Columbus and his men, but he enslaved them and forced them to do his dirty work for him.
He was a Christian, but broke many laws of the Christian way. He lied to the king and queen so he could get more help and time. He was ruthless and cruel, all which Christianity frowns upon. Columbus ran his sword through Indians who wouldn’t trade gold with him and took many natives prisoners to find gold. In 1495, he created a slave raid and rounded up fifteen hundred Arawak men, women, and children to force them to work or to sell them.
John Brown was crazy and his plan was a failure. He killed many people therefore “He has been called a cold blooded murderer” (Source 1). The first person he killed was unfortunately a free black man. Source 12 states that, “The first man killed during the raid was Hayward Shepherd, a free black man working with the Baltimore and Ohio railroad.” This is crazy because the goal of Brown’s raid was to help blacks, yet here he killed a black man. This is proof that he may not be right in the head.
Davy Crockett took a lot of responsibility for taking care of his brothers and sisters when his parents were out working at the gristmill they owned. Crockett also had to take care of his animals and livestock since his parents were out all the time (Hasday). When Crockett became older, he started developing hobbies, and one of them was hunting. At the age of thirteen Davy Crockett wanted to go hunting every single day because he thought it was so fun. Unfortunately, his parents did not have enough money for him to waste twenty shots of rounds every day.
One example of greed is when Giles Corey states that Thomas Putnam of accusing his neighbors of witchcraft: “This man is killing his neighbors for their land!” (Miller 96) Thomas Putnam disputes land boundaries with John Proctor: “What anarchy is this? This tract is my bounds, it’s in my bounds, Mr. Proctor.” (Miller32). There’s a lot of outrage going on in Salem. For example Abigail gets mad a John Proctor because he refuses her love. “Abby I may think of you time to time but I will cut off my own hand before I ever
Douglass uses flashbacks , deep characterization, and appeals to the emotions to address the negative effects of slavery. Douglass recounts his own life events to show the difficulties faced when a master plays the role of a father. He explains that the vile desires of the owner will destroy the lives of his children, “The master is forced to sell his mulatto children or constantly whip them out of deference to the feelings of his white wife“ (Douglass 17). This situation destroys the
Andrew Jackson is the epitome of a villain. If portrayed in a movie Jackson would be seen as the cruel murderous man who everyone couldn’t help but dislike, but somehow he still managed to be on the twenty dollar bill. Jackson was born into a poor family in 1767. From there on Jackson was a rebellious teen who happened to be imprisoned at the age of thirteen. Once Jackson grew up he experienced a great number of occupations from a lawyer, to a general, he finally chose to enter the world of politics.
As he got older he led battles into Pottawatomie (a pro-slavery settlement) to protest the mistreatment of slaves. After numerous battles at Pottawatomie, whites people would write that John Brown was practically a cold-blooded killer and he had no reason to kill. The same thing happened at Harper 's Ferry, but he was captured. Brown went to trial that same year and was sentenced to the death penalty. Some say that his lawyers and family came up with a story that he was mentally ill, in effort to escape the death penalty but that didn’t work.
