Hello Tamara Thank you for the insight on the federal Indian termination policies durning the 1950’s,and our selfish acts in attempting to move Indians off reservations and into subruban areas, I feel that justice could never be made for the todays native americans simply because the suffering we put their ansestors through could never take away the tears or pain we inflicted on them ,even though our federal government had even initiated a policy of removal as well as termination of the native americans under this particular policy that was souly created so the Native American people would no longer be government wards on reservations which todays era they are entiltled for the most psrt “subject to the same laws and entitled to the same privileges
In the summer of 1845, Frederick decided to fulfill a dream he had long held, to travel throughout England (5). Even though he was forced to stay in the steerage, second-class, during his trip overseas he was extremely excited to finally go to Britain (8, 9). While on board, he had made many friends and was even asked by the captain to give lectures on slavery (8, 9). When he finally reached Europe, Frederick felt free from prejudice. He was treated as a man, as opposed to a second-class citizen, and was welcomed into homes, hotels, and restaurants (8, 9).
The removal of Native Americans was a tragedy felt by thousands as they were forced to give up not only their land but most of their culture as well. The natives were forced to abandon many traditions they had passed down for generations in order to adjust to the life the government wanted them to live. Native Americans continue to feel the effect of this event today. Their communities have been economically depressed for a long time. There are numerous accounts that assist this idea including Junior Spirit recognizing and explaining the hardships his family has gone through as a result of this movement.
Samuel Kettle was a forty one year old married man from Liverpool, England when he was convicted at the Lancaster Assises for Forgery - Uttering a forged order for payment of money. His occupation at the time of the offence was Timber Merchant Clerk. Throughout his life he declared his occupation as Clerk, Timber Merchant and Carpenter, most likely applying himself to all three as the need arose. Comparing Samuel’s attributes and experiences of literacy, occupation, and crime to those surveyed, his literacy was typical as occupations of convicts transported required some degree of literacy. In contrast, Samuel’s occupation was atypical as clerks were not amongst the majority in England and his crime was atypical as it was an occupational related crime.
During the 19th century there was a tremendous amount of attention from the rest of the nation of the issues of land and Indian removal. These issues were centered around economic problems or developments that might arise as a result of Indian removal, Humanitarian issues, and finally political troubles that are caused by this act. During this time period senator Thomas Benton who represented Missouri wanted remove Native Americans off their land, he was a firm believer in extending the area of slavery. He was a huge advocate for “converting Indian soil to slave soil” as it a had a positive economic impact on the state and led onward on the march for cotton cultivation. The early and middle portion of the 19th century proved to be a difficult time for American Indians as they were constantly rattled by acts that led to them to emigrate their native land.
During one of his powerful speeches, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. said “Our nation was born in genocide when it embraced the doctrine that the original American, the Indian, was an inferior race.” Scholars talk of what happened to the Indians as a great tragedy, but never anything further. We deny what happened to the Indians, particularly the Cherokees. During the 1830’s, the United States government set out to remove all Cherokee individuals from their homes and relocate them west. Relocation meant ending up on a land foreign to them, and presented with environmental conditions that posed difficulties for human living.
One of the reasons I feel Booker T. Washington deserves a holiday, is because he was the first African American ever to have the honor of being invited to the White House and through his hard work he was able to reach the lives of many people. He became known for his relentless efforts to ensure that all Black Americans had an opportunity at education. Through his hard work in establishing the school he influenced many people, by giving them the opportunity they otherwise would have never had. Washington was also a promoter of hard work, believing that it was the only way around the seemingly unconquerable difficulties of even surviving in a white people ruled society.
Furthermore, Winston always believed that a person should always fight for what is right, and that is what he did. With Winston leading his country against Germany, he led with an attitude of bravery and confidence, similar to how the British were feeling at that time. For example, Winston Churchill gave one of his most iconic speeches on the special day of June 4, 1940, where he used his words to inspire people to stand up for the Allies. As a politician he even gave a speech to Parliament and told them he had, “nothing to offer but blood, toil, tears and sweat.” (history.com) He was showing that he himself was ready to fight as well.
The Merriam Webster Dictionary defines the Democratic-Republican party as, “of or relating to a major American political party of the early 19th century, favoring a strict interpretation of the Constitution to restrict the powers of the federal government and emphasizing states’ rights”. James Madison was a Democratic-Republican in the fact that he supported states’ rights, a strict interpretation of the constitution, and freedom to speech and press. James Madison thoroughly supported states rights. During his writing of the Bill of Rights, Madison added the last amendment to emphasis the powers states possessed.
"Alright everybody! I know we 've all had a busy month but I really need someone to take on this story!" said John Smith. A collective sigh spread throughout the room at their bosses words, as each of the accomplished editors looked around, trying to figure out who would take the fall this time.
