Any day now we will be forced of our ancestral lands that we have inhabited for centuries, all do to a treaty that holds no grounds. Although the treaty may have been signed by who you call the Treaty party, these individuals hold no actually authority for the Cherokee. They were not appointed by any council and had no authority to make a treaty even if they thought that they were doing it for the good of the Cherokee nation. Likewise because the Treaty party had no real authority to sign a treaty and materials agreed upon by the Treaty party, so any agreements made between this party and the government should hold no legal binding. However, despite this fact the treaty was still ratified and now we are going to get forced out of our homes.
Both southerners and northerners had to rebuild the south, but a lot of southerners rejected the help and just wanted it to be back to normal with slaves and cash crops. The question to this DBQ is: “North or South: Who destroyed the rebuilding of the south’s economy?”. The south resistence destroyed the the reconstruction even though the north forgot about the reconstruction, the KKK was distracting the north from the reconstruction by harassing the government
Because of that the smallest state in the Union boycotted the Convention over its belief that the new central government formed would damage its own power. Rhode Island residents voted down ratification in 1788. 3. Three men refused to sign the Constitution. George Mason from Virginia, Edmund Randolph also from Virginia, and Elbridge Gerry from Massachusetts refused to sign the Constitution in 1787.
Having a weak central government created a whole new set of problems. After analyzing the Articles of Confederation the weaknesses outnumbered the strengths. Such as states not having to obey the laws and ignore taxations because they had no authority to enforce them. Congress did not have the power to collect taxes from the each of the states, that was one major weakness especially during the Revolutionary War because instead of getting the money they had to ask the states for money and the states said no. At that point the government should have put their foot down and enforced a new law, their troops were fighting for their freedom and these people didn’t care.Instead the government in response had no money to pay for the war so they printed money causing inflation and soon money became worthless.
The most powerful people in the south, the KKK were the only ones that could have helped with the reconstruction of the south were not helping matters, that is why there was not and big developments. The south only wanted white people in power because they thought that the freedman were not equal and unfit to be part of any governments. The south wouldn’t even allow the freedmen to attend and public events. In conclusion even though the North had taken the soldiers out of the south and had given up on the freemen, the south has had a lot more problems reconstructing and making the freedman equal. The KKK killed so many people, the powerful government thinking that whites and blacks are not equal, the leaders only wanting white people in power, and how all 1st class men are in the KKK, the south could not have made it any more difficult to change their ways and their
To do this, they sent troops into the South, which they were not very pleased with. During Reconstruction, freed slaves still did not have the same opportunities that white people did. The Civil rights laws were made to protect former slaves and make sure everyone is equal, but still, the South cannot agree and continues to make life nearly just as bad as it had been before the war. In the document written by a former slave, he expresses how poorly they have been treated. When Lincoln was president, Reconstruction ran alot smoother.
Who Killed Reconstruction? The reconstruction period happened because the south refused to set slaves free. Thousands of people died and were forced to vote against their beliefs. Making people “come to their senses” turned out to be a little harder than the north originally thought. 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.
Nathaniel Bacon was a colonist of the Virginia Colony. Since Bacon lived in bad land on the frontier, he knew first hand how it was to be constantly attacked by the Indians. That is when Bacon decided to rebel against the Governor’s relationships with the Native Americans, as well as being frustrated by the lack of political rights. Bacon challenged the economic and political privileges of the governor’s circle. Governor Berkeley refused to protect frontier farmers, because he was too busy trading fur, so the effect of that was the farmers were constantly being raided by Native Americans.
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 Anti-Federalists criticized the constitution because it lacked of bill of rights to protect individual rights and made the constitution not approved. Other struggles that they faced were slave-trade. Slave-Trade had many conflicts because the north was against slavery and the south was for slavery. This made both parts of the states divide their regions. Another struggle was the effects of Shay’s Rebellion because it affected the courts in the western part of Massachusetts to shut down so that judges couldn’t confiscate their farmland.
The Cherokee had several major objections to moving to new locations. The Cherokee wanted to stay instead of moving to a place such as Arkansas because it is “unknown” to them and is already occupied by the Indians. Therefore, the Indians would look at the Cherokee as if they did not belong or be seen as an enemy when the Cherokee meant no harm. Also the Indians were not really supplied by wood and water, which was bad for the Indians because they could not live as agriculturalists, but also bad for the Cherokee because they were worried there was not a lot of land for farming. Furthermore, the Cherokee had major objections because the people around the Cherokees were so different compared to them.
The president during the enforcement of the Indian removal act, Andrew Jackson, thought that the indigenous people were less civilized and moral than the settlers, although many of the tribes had adapted to the European lifestyle. He did not believe that the more “civilized” people should live alongside the indigenous people. When congress passed the Indian removal act in 1830 that stated that it was legal to force indigenous people off of their land, he fully enforced it, pushing tribes west. When there was an auction of Cherokee land, he claimed he couldn 't do anything to stop it, but he didn 't truly want to. The indigenous people wanted to coexist in peace, as Red Jacket stated, “‘You have got our country but are not satisfied; you want to force your religion upon us….
The morals the slave owner has are very different than today’s accepted morals. I could not understand the reasoning behind someone owning a person. I also had to take off my binoculars when looking at the tactics being used in the Civil War. I was annoyed at the Civil War movies because the soldiers were in tight lines shooting at each other with really no cover. To be honest it looked like suicide to join the armies.
