President Andrew Jackson had over 20,000 Native Americans removed from their homeland. The removals began in 1838 and ended in 1839. The journey, now known as The Trail of Tears, to Oklahoma was dangerous, deadly, and many died along the way. The removals were part of President Andrew Jackson 's Indian removal policy. The removal act was passed by Jackson in 1830 and forced about 20,000 Native Americans out of there home land.
Andrew Jackson disobeyed a direct order from the Supreme Court, which it means he was above the law. I really wonder how Americans tolerated him, at that time, he was cruel to the Indian common man. Because of him, the Native Americans have the worst end of the Trail of Tears. They are the ones who are forced out of their traditional homes and sent away on a journey of pain and death. Those who had fallen ill, most of the time died, and those who had the will to move on were able to make it to the end and start new lives.
The Syrian civil war has been going on since 2011 and has caused millions of people to flee their country and take refuge in places like Turkey, Germany, and Lebanon. Originally, an environment crisis occurred in 2007, a major drought that caused over a million people to migrate to the city from the countryside. This caused a major issue, poverty, which lead to an even greater issue, social unrest. The whole country became a riot. First it started with peaceful protests and then people began being killed.
These battles lead the Native Americans to lose their land, homes, and move onto reserves. The map on Document 8 shows the decreasing lands for the Native American tribes. Because of the restrictions put on the Indians, they could not go in certain places to hunt. That includes the buffalo, the settlers however did end up killing a major portion of the population of the buffalo, for meat and fur. Document 6 shows a graph on the declining population of the
The Cambodian genocide had became an event in history of a horrific tragedy that was initiated by many bad people who did not have moral sense, compassion, or hear. The Khmer rouge could not be forgiven or even given lesser time sentence for they murder countless of innocent children and their parents and enslaved many others. This Genocide will be an event that should not be repeated. That is it should be an tragedy to learn from that violence, tortured, and cruel enslaving should not be set against the
He claims that Indians had had a negative experience with the Europeans even before the Pilgrims arrived. In fact, Indians attacked them with arrows that belonged to the other travelers from the Old World, notorious for ruining Indians’ homes and selling the locals into slavery. Another reason for the outrage of Indians were the diseases that they were not immune to. Smallpox, for example, killed a great part of the local population. Axtell then described how the natives joined and copied the whites’ way of life.
The U.S. expansion consequently harmed many Native Americans and caused many problems. The Native Americans were kicked out of their homes, were depleted of resources, or killed. According to the “Trail of Tears” painting context, “the Cherokee faced hunger, disease, and exhaustion. Over 4,000 died on the journey.” Robert Lindneux displayed the Native Americans looking deathly tired and weak during the Trail of Tears. There were many of them all ages moving by horse, wagon, or walking.
Many people during the time period the novel took place were prejudice. Bob Ewell was angry that Atticus defended Tom Robinson. Stephanie Crawford explains that, “It made one down and about two more to go.” (323).

There was a lot of racial tension back in the time period the novel To Kill a Mockingbird took place.
The Negligent Carnage in Darfur Genocides are almost always started when a malevolent person who has so much hatred leads blind people to commit atrocious acts. In many countries people feel marginalized and discriminated against. In Darfur of 2003, two rebel groups went against the government and claimed to be oppressed (“Darfur Genocide”). The Khartoum government felt attacked, so he ordered the Janjaweed to brutally and maliciously raid communities. The lamentable events that caused the Darfur Genocide exemplify how many factors led to the gruesome killing spree including the Khartoum government harsh actions, the rebel groups going against the government, and the Janjaweed’s terrible intent to slaughter and molest Darfurians.
Firstly, the stereotype that people who do bad things are supposedly evil and scary is shown through the characters, Tom Robinson and Boo Radley. Tom Robinson is seen as an evil and scary person because he is accused for raping and assaulting Mayella Ewell. Tom Robinson is hated by a majority of the white people in Maycomb except for a white lawyer who is ready to stand up for someone who is innocent. Later on in the novel, Tom Robinson ends up committing suicide himself because he did not want to be put in prison for something he did not do.
What caused him to hate indians so much was the Creek Wars. He had so much hostility towards them he caused the Indian Removal Act. He pushed this act onto the Senate and House of Reps. so much that they finally accepted it, but when it came to the to the supreme court they turned it down. Even though he was rejected by them, he told that he had an army, they didn’t and went ahead with the act. The tribes that were involved in this were the Cherokee, Chickasaw, Choctaw, Creek, and the Seminole.
The south being the main reason why reconstruction was a failure with acts like the KKK, Black Codes, and the thought that blacks couldn’t be elected officials were the main reasons why reconstruction failed the way that it did. The KKK commonly known as the Ku Klux Klan was one of the biggest reasons for the failure of reconstruction. Acts like the killing of “John Stephens, State Senator from Caswell”(Document A) The KKK created lots of violent terrorist like
There were some 15,000 captives that were still to be removed. There were draught and poor sanitation that made life very miserable. Very many of them died. The National Council of Cherokee and Chief Ross tried to plead with General Scott to permit the remaining Cherokees to wait till the weather was better for them to be moved. They also wanted to oversee their removal.
At Martin’s Hundred, they’ve killed way more than half of their population in Wolstenholme Towne where just two houses and part of a church were left still standing.all, the Powhatan tribe killed about four hundred colonists (a third of the population) and they also took 20 women in as captives, Their captives lived their lives and worked hard and tried to be good Powhatan Indians until they died or their ransom took place. All of the Settlers abandoned the Falling Creek Ironworks, Henricus, and the Smith’s Hundred. Accounts say that the attack took place on a good friday, it’s incorrect. Zero of the contemporary accounts at all have mentioned a good friday not ever not even once, but they have said on a friday morning the twenty second of march sixteen twenty two,it really was on a friday that wasn’t a lie but the good friday of that year fell on april 19 about almost a month after the surprise attack on
The Indian Removal Act also supports this idea because it removed around 50,000 Native Americans (Cherokee, Chickasaw, Choctaw and others from their home) to Indian Territory (present day Oklahoma). The government forced them to walk all the way to their relocation which caused countless deaths. There was the Sand Creek Massacre where militia from Colorado killed, raided, and plundered the Native American village. The dwindling population of Native Americans was caused by the bias against Native Americans in which led to their
