War broke out between the Sunni and Shi’ites after a Shi’ite leader claimed the title of Imam and began to establish Shia rule throughout the Middle East. Unfortunately, the conflict between the Sunni and the Shi’ite is one that still goes on today. When Europeans were brought into the Middle East as advisors and trade partners to the Ottomans, the culture in that region changed further. European military tactics and weapons were adopted, direct trade was established, and modernization became the goal of Ottoman society. In India, there was also religious turmoil.

Martin Luther King Jr. and Malcom X are two of the most influential African - American leaders in history despite this, the two have vastly opposing views on positive and negative liberty. Using their noted differences in opinion we will explore what the two leaders would have advised the Cherokee Indians to do in the face of the Indian Removal Act. The Indian Removal Act was a law signed into order by the U.S. that gave the government the right to displace Cherokee Indians out of their rightful land east of the Mississippi River to move to the west.

Not having any proof of his involvement or leadership of this rebellion, Gallatin was not arrested. Gallatin went on to hold the position of Secretary of the Treasury under Thomas Jefferson and James Madison for thirteen years.
