When he called for a collectivization and there were millions of kulaks that opposed Stalin many of which were killed and during the collectivization millions more died. Stalin turned Russia into a totalitarian state, meaning everything would be controlled by Stalin. He used fear to get the people what they wanted, and the people’s voice started to fade.
They decided they were tired of being enslaved, killed slave owners and their families. When they were finally caught, they were lynched. They were hung out in public so that other enslaved individuals would know if they tried anything of the sort, they too would be lynched. There were many more rebellions and threats against slavery and the laws, but I am sure it would have been plenty of more if people did not see others getting lynched. The act of lynching really rose during the reconstruction era, after the Civil War.

National rivalries have always been a part of history. They were fiercer, of course, during times of war and conflict. During the time when Beowulf was written, estimated to be around the 8th to 11th centuries, England was suffering brutal attacks from the Vikings. As these attacks escalated into invasions, the underprepared country suffered, and slowly learned the ways of war from the fierce Norse warriors over time. As the cultures mixed, they would have heard the Völsunga saga, the legends of the Norse heroes.
World War II was a horrific time in history. Millions of innocent civilians and soldiers died. During the war, Germany invaded and took over many other countries like France, Yugoslavia, and parts of Russia. In all of these countries, citizens joined Resistances or took part in illegal activities such as reading illegal newspapers. A resistance is “a group of people organized to work clandestinely against an oppressor,” (Richardson).
Soldiers protested about the poor food and water conditions, and therefore rebelled and took their commanding officer hostage requesting the redress of the Emperor.

By late August, the emperor had been directly accused of covering up the Welo and Tigray famine of the early 1970s that allegedly had killed 200,000 people which caused him to be imprisoned on September 12. The Derg’s concepts embodies slogans such as “self-reliance”, and “the supremacy of the common good” in order to make peace with the citizens and show that the Derg was fighting for them.
Julius Caesar led many attacks to expand Rome’s empire into northern Gaul which helped Rome to conquer most of modern day Europe.

Carthage gave up their fleet and lost all their territory, blocking any prospect of revival . The war also put strain upon the Roman forces: there were high casualty rates and many men had to be drafted. Criminals and slaves were made soldiers to fill the ranks- Italy was close to devastation. Despite numerous setbacks, the Roman forces emerged dominant in western and, ultimately, centeal Mediterranean (Boatwright 2004: 119). A GROWING MEDITERRANEAN EMPIRE After their second success, Rome’s power spread throughout the rest of the Mediterranean world.

They killed thousands of soldiers on both sides, making an impact on each side’s soldier count, and adding another fear to the soldier’s head.

They menacingly burned about seven plantations and killed about twenty of my dear neighbors. More uprisings have progressed throughout our colony after the rebellion.

Another plausible theory of why this battle was fought is that he wanted to push forward his troops to kill the other army’s troops so, that he could use his other part of his troops for the battle of gettysburg. The bloodiest day in America ever was September 17, 1862 also known as the battle of antietam. One of the plausible theories of why it was fought is that it was to stop Robert E.
