In the same Turkey Creek scene, we see another example of how the producer ties in liberty and the freedom to speak, and then the ultimate sacrifice that one undertakes for one’s beliefs.

Known as predestination, the Puritans believed that everything that will happen has already been decided by God or fate and cannot be changed. Essentially by this belief, the Pequot War was destined to happen, and that God approved of it. With Natives attacking the colonists in an attempt to push them out - The Pequot War broke out. The war happened because the colonists continued to expand into Native American land and they were demanding the Pequot tribe to pay tribute. They also demanded the Indians give their children for labor, which makes no sense.
"A Brief History Of The Trail Of Tears" White settlers wanted Native Americans removed from their homeland because they wanted to expand their land and are thirst for gold and resources. The U.S. government supported expansion by using the Treaty of New Echota, known as the Treaty Party signed by about 100 Cherokees to justify the removal. Because of the encroachment of white settlers, Native Americans were forced to leave their homeland. Leading up to the Trail of Tears, the U.S. government possessed with greed for gold and expansion of land, ordered the Indian Removal Act of 1830. This act caused the Native Americans to be forced to leave their homeland.

In Lincoln’s Second Inaugural Address, he stressed that the citizens should carry on this war “with malice toward none” and “with charity for all.” This statement could be considered self-contradictory because the North had immense amounts of hate for the South, as did the South for the North. Despite their hate for each other, Lincoln had much desire for this war to end quickly, as he wanted to reunite the Union as it once was before this horrendous dispute started. Lincoln found it mandatory that the people relieve all hate for each other in order to obtain a peace that only the end of the war could possibly bring.
The civil war was a bloody and gruesome fight to preserve a way of life that was looked upon as immoral and unconstitutional. John Sherman described in a letter the views of soldiers and men, “The same qualities that have enabled a single generation of men to develop the resources of a continent would enable us to destroy it more rapidly.” Government leaders and soldiers ignored the work that went into building America and were able to accept the killings fellow men or other innocent people without shedding a tear because of the need to feel superior to other men. Other leaders of war learned to settle with the consequences of war, “war means fighting and fighting means killing” (Forrest). The ability to kill because “it’s just war” is a learned characteristic after being involved in so many brutal and atrocious events.
Andrew Jackson is known for being a major advocate for the superfluous removal of the Native American tribes. Jackson was being oblivious when he decided that he should ignore the treaties signed with the natives. The president was exhibiting selfishness and naïveté by confiscating the lands of the natives, to which they rightfully owned. Jackson had forced the “five civilized tribes,” which were natives who had adopted their neighbor’s ideas. These tribes were forced to make a long and perilous journey to the west of the Mississippi River.

I even think about the man trying to make Rosa Parks get up out her seat because he was a white guy and she refused to get up, so she was arrested. Well in my opinion I think Martin Luther King tried to do his best to end racism before he was shot and killed because everyone hated him, only because of what he was trying to do and what he was
To do what is necessary to remain in power, he goes into drastic measures by telling his messenger, “Hang those that talk of fear” (V.iii.38). He is compelled to think that whatever or whoever is spreading fear or opposing him should perish. In addition, he intimidates his messenger after being told the Birnam Woods is moving to his castle by stating, “If thou speak’st false, upon the next tree shall thou hang alive till famine cling thee” (V.v.37). Shocked about the news, he threatens to take the life of his messenger for lying because what the messenger said about the forest moving makes the prophecy true. Macbeth will kill anyone to stay in power for his time being.

In December 7, 1829, Jackson sent a letter to Congress and it shows that he was democratic in some area, but not in other area. The letter was about the Native Americans and Indian Removal which was caused by white settlers who wanted Native Americans’ lands. Jackson strongly supported white settlers and decided to force Native Americans to move to the west. He claimed in the letter that Native Americans should move to the west and if they remain they must be subject to their laws. Because Jackson wanted to benefit his people who supported him, he caused Native Americans trouble and eventually killed them by moving them forcefully.
difference was Sitting Bull thought the best for the people was to fight for the land. More forts were built, Fort Union and Fort Buford went deep into Sioux land near Yellowstone, and Sitting Bull truly hated them, especially Fort Buford. By the end of the civil war people were coming in droves, the government still trying to take the land peaceable, sent in Pierre-Jean-De Smet, who was a Jesuit Priest. While Sitting Bull would not meet with government officials, he did meet with the priest. He did agree to peace, but later in the ceremony he still had the same concerns he had throughout the invasion of the land, as long as the whites left the land and stayed off, he would agree to peace.

While Kingsolver recognizes religion as a difference among America, her emphasis along with Dr. King is the issue regarding race in our nation. Kingsolver writes about how patriotism is love for his or her own country, and recognizes that not everyone has the same way of expressing their love. Kingsolver alludes to a white man screaming in the streets that he was an American and then “killed a Sikh man wearing a turban” because he was not a native born American (549). It is clear that this incident is a distortion of patriotism. This man interpreted the word patriotism as being the white race.
