Furthermore, many resources, such as buffalo were slaughtered and were almost made extinct, and Native Americans lost their land to American settlers, as well as these resources. Therefore, the Transcontinental
The Indian Removal Act of 1830, put into action by President Andrew Jackson, developed many long lasting affects for the Native American tribes. The most significant impact of them all was said to be the Trail of Tears. This remorseless event led to an extravagant number of deaths to the Indians. Along with this deadly removal process, the Removal Act led to poor living conditions for the Native Americans. The Removal Act also forced the Indians to transform into a new culture.
Not only has this epidemic dispatched numerous people it made them suffer to the point where it was unbearable to handle. Philadelphia under Siege: The Yellow Fever of 1793 is an article that states, “The number of deaths changed from ten victims a day in August to one hundred a day in October.” As a result
Completely unknown to the “New World,” this illness killed the majority of the local population and was one of the main reasons why the Aztec and Inca empires fell. The early settlers introduced the disease to the native population, which then led to a decline. This disease had the power to decimate entire groups of people and organizations to collapse. The effects of smallpox were devastating and noticeable and led to the fist examples of biological warfare during the Fresh-Indian War. The commander of the British forces suggested using smallpox deliberately to diminish the opposing
In the Age of Exploration, the Columbian Exchange was created between Europe and the Americas as a massive exchange of plants, animals, and diseases. In document 2, the Columbian Exchange is depicted, and a main part of it shows how many diseases– smallpox, measles, and typhus– were brought by Europe to the Americas. In The Broken Spears: The Aztec Account of the Conquest of Mexico, Miguel Léon-Portilla claims that diseases struck "everywhere in the city and kill[ed] a vast number of... people" (Document 7). The illnesses caused many sores to appear on peoples' faces and bodies. Some people could not walk or move as they were helpless and cried in agony.
The English demanded more of the Indians resources. Raleigh planned to exploit the Indians and use them as laborers. In 1586 the colonists attacked the Indian villages. With little hope of future exploitation of the Indians the colonists returned to England. And in 1587 Raleigh arranged for John White to to return to America in another attempt to establish a colony.
The French started colonizing in the early 1500s, by the order of King Francis I to explore North America. King Francis I, had an explorer by the name of Jacques Cartier to explore the St. Lawrence River and the coast of the Newfoundland. Jacques Cartier founded New France by plotting a cross on the shore of the Gaspe Peninsula. The French at that time unsuccessfully tried to establish several colonies throughout North America that failed, because of high rate of diseases such as Smallpox’s, Typhus, Measles, and influenza and many others. Which killed in record numbers, weather, and or conflict with other European powers during the religious movement known as the Reformation.
In addition, the Europeans killed many Native Americans and took over their land. Yet, the Europeans created a trading system which inflicted conflict within their own groups. The Spanish saw the French as a threat which lead to the creation of a
Smallpox continued to be a problem throughout the 17th and 18th centuries, affecting populations on a large scale.” It was one of the primary annihilator’s of the native indigenous population of the Americas during the first arrivals of the Europeans who brought it with them. One notable incident which many believe led to a severe outbreak of the smallpox amongst various Indian tribes in the Ohio Valley in 1763 was the case of the British Army giving away blankets from a pox hospital with the hopes of passing the disease onto the Indians they were fighting. Gill (2004) shares purported correspondence between two British officers with the following:
""Agriculture was a big part of the Aztec empire. Agriculture helped the Aztecs ﬂourish as a civilization. There 's a connection between territorial expansion and agriculture. Document A shows that the Aztecs expanded their territory by creating chinamas. The Aztecs used their farming method
and they were looking 3G’s (Gold, God, and Glory). Spanish were doing so greedy and tortured to Native but disease was the worst enemy and some of the survivors about 90-95%. In 1616, an epidemic were killed 90% of the coastal Indians.
After 10 to 12 days, the slaves friends have the infection, and after that their friends were infected. That is how the infection spread. Most of the infections came from animals, which again relates to geography. The animals that spread from the Fertile Crescent spread disease to them first. Many people died, but they were also the first to receive the genetically built in vaccines so they were not as susceptible to diseases.
Seeking religious freedom, more land and more raw materials, the Pilgrims from England set on a voyage to a new world. Arriving to a land already inhabited by Native Americans, the pilgrims were unwelcomed. Overcoming the differences and finding peace between each group, the Natives helped the Englanders prosper. The inference people can assume is from the numerous times Native Americans are mentioned in early American history such as “Of Plymouth Plantation” and “The Constitution of the Iroquois Nations” that the foundation of America began with the help of Natives. The Constitution of the Iroquois Nations was an inspiration for the American constitution.
