One reason why I think we should not celebrate Columbus day to the extent of a federal holiday is because of the thinking that Columbus was the one who discovered North America. In the article “Leif Erikson” , Leif Eriksson, who was the son of Erik the Red, is said to be the first European to set foot in North America. There are stories about how he truly discovered North America but one story says that he sailed off course on his way back to Greenland and ended up below Greenland in North america. Another story is he heard about the fertile land of North America by an icelandic man who had sailed past it years before so Leif thought it would be a good place to land his ship. This idea of Christopher Columbus truly
In Wuthering Heights, we clearly see that dog mainly regresses back into wolf as Wolves are not only ferocious creatures, but they are more violent and dangerous than dogs. While they are the same genus as dogs (canis) they are a different species: the wolf is canis lupus, the dog is canis familiaris. With the progression of novel, a violent and partially tamed dog is regressing into wolf as both dog and wolf are spoken as closely interlinked, when Joseph remarks ‘Hey, Gnasher! Hey, dog! Hey Wolf, holld him, holld him!’ 16 Genetically speaking, the wolf, of course, is biological cousin to the many forms of domestic dogs, and various forms of dogs do appear throughout Wuthering Heights.

He spent many years fighting the land from the Native Americans to give to the white farmers. In 1830, President Andrew Jackson, he signed the Native American Removal Act. When President Jackson signed the act, it gave the Federal government power to exchange with the Native Americans. They were considered as part of the United States.

Unique Wolves If you visit northern Wisconsin, don't be surprised to hear the eerie and beautiful howl of wolves at night. They have returned after about 40 years of absence. By the 1950's, wolves had been driven out of their ancient homeland by ranchers and the federal government. Wolves killed livestock for food, so they were considered nuisances. But starting in the 1990's, the state reintroduced wolves to help manage the deer population.
The Lakota people occupied the expansive Great Plains of the north in an area covering over 750,000 square miles. The inhabited region by the Lakota had vast panoramic grasslands with various forests, rivers and mountainous terrains stretching from New Mexico through Western Texas, Staked Plain to Alberta, Canada.

Carter demonstrates his idea that the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge shouldn’t be ruin by the exploration of oil industry or any other for-profit runnings. As the president of the nation, Carter describes the scene as “a once-in-a-lifetime wildlife spectacle” when he saw the group of caribou running on the great lands in front of his eyes. To wit, less and less chances people have to see such a view personally in a wild environment if they are transformed into a factory or a industry. Moreover, as the author mentions in the fourth paragraph: “Such proposed developments would forever destroy…that depend on this northernmost terrestrial ecosystem.” The author well explains by his sentences that those animals are driven out of their original
Without the railroad, British Columbia could join the United States and the United States could, as its Manifest Destiny announced, take the prairies. The railroad thought was unbelievable. It would be the world 's longest railroad through the world 's most cold area. The stones and impervious woods of the Precambrian shield would be hard, the muskeg that could swallow men and machines would be harder, and the snow-crested Rockies would be unimaginable.
Roosevelt created the United States Forest Service because he wanted to protect lands and protect wildlife. Roosevelt was such a powerful conservationist that 7 years after he left from office there were 35 new national parks being managed and 23 of them Roosevelt created.

When Roosevelt protected/established 150 national parks.
After seeing the horrific sanitation issues in the meat processing industry, the president decided that the government needed to step in and provide regulation.

He preserved over 230,000,000 acres of land, setting aside 150 protected forests, 51 federal bird reserves, 4 game reserves, and helping build 24 irrigation projects.
