According to Dadabhai Naoroji’s article, “The Benefits of British Rule for India”, the Indians/natives had no voice in the taxes, legislations, or were qualified to earn the position of a court judge or high-ranking government official. The society the British constructed blocked the Indians out, and openly disregarded their opinions and desire for change and equality. Some may claim that the British modernized their country by reforming the natives education system, and implementing new innovations and technological advancements, like railroads to improve transportation within the country. However, according to the article written by Professor Peter Marshall titled, “The British Presence in India in the 18th Century,” the majority of these systems primarily focused on English and Western ideas, rather than their own distinctive culture. The traditional ideas and beliefs focusing on theory and methodology, that were implemented into their previous education system, were then modified to a practical approach, forcing their pre-existing system to slowly descend into oblivion.
When the colonists were still with Great Britain, King George III misused his power. As a result, colonists wrote the Declaration of Independence on July 4, 1776, to the king, to state their separation from Great Britain, to form a new country, the United States of America. After creating a new country, Americans wrote the Articles of Confederation in the year 1777, which they purposely weakened central government, so the abuse of power, wouldn’t exist. This meant the states had all the power. Although this structure of government seemed great, the creators of the Articles quickly realized that with no central government, states weren’t united because they were busy on increasing the growth of only their state.
Because nowhere in the constitution does it state that a President had the right to expand the boundaries of the nation (www.shmoop.com). This had quickly became an issue for Jefferson, who followed the constitution in its entirety. But Jefferson who wanted the Territory desperately went through with his plan even in the midst of a debate that it was unconstitutional from others. Jefferson disregarded his fellow politicians who disagreed with his choice and argued by stating “Laws of Necessity” which can be defined as everything that is necessary to preserve a nation is only illegal if it is not done to preserve the nation (www.123helpme.com). He also tried to amend the constitution and submit a draft that would make his actions legal and foolproof.
The Mexican-American War was the first war to be fought mostly on foreign soil. During this period, the newly formed the United States was eagerly seeking to expand their territory towards the west. When failed attempts to obtain lands by purchasing them from Mexico for the price of $30,000,000 dollars. The U.S. government felt there was little hope of gaining these territories by peaceful means, a war was inevitable. Mexico was still bitter despite Texas gaining their independence in 1836, voluntarily selling their lands to the United States was not an option.
Our nations strong will and determined attitude paved the road of early industrialization in the early and mid 1800 's. The steamboat, transcontential railroad, and Erie Canal were early accomplishments in transportation that began to push our country towards bigger and better feats. In the 1800 's American economy boomed, American affairs became more successful, And Americans began to disperse all across North America. The political, economic, and social changes brought about by developments in transportation from 1820 to 1860 caused the nation to prosper and spring towards our country 's long desired belief in manifest destiny. The rise of transportation mechanisms ultimately increased the employment rates and caused land ownership to become more common.
Crow claims, “At least part of their reluctance grew out of the inaccessibility of the southern highlands.” Had they attempted to militarily enforce the excise in those westernmost counties of North Carolina, it would have taken a significant amount of time for an army to journey to the southern frontier, not to mention a significant cost to maintain and support troops. Additionally, Randolph told Hamilton, “I pass by the information from [North] Carolina, because it offers no evidence, nor any prospect of evidence, sufficient for the objects of prosecution.” Even after Washington issued the proclamation on September 15th that warned against excise resistance, the opposition to the tax in North Carolina
The government of early America was not kind to people of any color besides white. The president at the time, Andrew Jackson, had spent many years in the army campaigning, taking Native American land and passing it on to white farmers. In the year 1830 he signed for the Indian Removal Act. This allowed the government to exchange Native American land east of the Mississippi for land in the west called "The Indian Colonization Zone." This law only allowed the government to negotiate fairly for the exchange of this land but Jackson and the military forces consistently ignored this facet of the act and forced the natives out of their land.
The United States Army entered Mosul, but at no time did they think they would have to run the country. The U.S had a plan, but when that plan failed, they had to go to their next option. The next option for the commander in Iraq was to move the 101st up to Mosul to secure it (Lundberg & Zimmerman). The 101st commanders really did not know what to expect, but one thing he knew is that securing Mosul would be a key element in the future and building of Iraq. Ending up in Mosul The mission was to secure Mosul, but when 4th ID was not allowed to enter through Turkey, someone else available would end up taking that mission.
He cites a historian named John Lawson, who talks about Native American folk lore surrounding the arrival of the British Colonists. In my opinion the use of folk lore shouldn’t be used in any evidence-based analysis; It’s unscholarly, and it doesn’t add anything to the conversation. In Allard’s final statement: “Although the fate of the Roanoke colonists may never be known for sure, it is clear that many factors—the difficult sea voyage, lack of supplies, poor relations with the Indians whose support they needed to survive, and the worst drought in 800 years—could have greatly reduced the odds of their survival. But people have overcome even worse odds before. More than four centuries later, the fate of the Lost Colony remains a mystery.” (Allard) He lays out plenty of evidence for both sides and still never draws a definitive conclusion to prove anything; causing the analysis to fall
The “search for a national government” in the United States came at a time when the country was at it’s lowest. We had finally declared our independence from Europe, but the country was lost. After our forefathers had written the Declaration of Independence, the country began creating governments, however the governments they began creating were on the state level. No one thought about creating the national government. When they did begin creating the national government, the people that formed the state’s governments thought to make the national government Republic.
I will be writing about how the Early Islamic Empire expanded. Islam expanded by Muslims invading other territories. This helps them expand Islam because once they invade; they take charge, and expand. This information is from Document A. Another way they expanded Islam was that they joined forces.
For example, Akbar the Great of the Mughal dynasty conducted interviews with scholars of Hindu, Buddhist, and Christian backgrounds to learn about each religion’s foundation, reasoning, and secrets (doc 2). As a result, Akbar who believed that discovering the truth is the main goal of humanity couldn 't be determined without the acknowledgement of other religions, including the native people in India and without the initiative to want to learn about them. Akbar’s respect of other religions caused the religions to further develop in the empire. Allowing these religions to develop caused for new ideas to grow and leaders used them to improve their rule. In addition, Suleiman the Magnificent, a leader of the Ottoman Empire, gave individuals government positions based on their character and abilities to complete their tasks and not their wealth or their parentage (doc 3).
Turkic ruler Saladin united the Muslim armies of South Asia and North Africa and has taken over Jerusalem. Three kings who have joined the crusade have not achieved much due to Emperor Frederick Barbarossa dying and King Phillip II returning to Europe. The lone king, King Richard I, failed to retake the city but instead has taken a deal from Saladin to keep control of the lands north of Jaffa. Pope Innocent III called for a new crusade that is being mostly led by French Knights. We set out for the Holy Lands in 1202 but the Knights became distracted with information by the Venetian lords about the wealth in Constantinople.
The founding fathers of The United States of America insisted on incorporating a strong central leadership in The Articles of Confederation. Certain failures caused by no central leadership were: No independent judiciary, no foreign affairs head, and the inability to deal with internal and external threats. The Articles of Confederation were written hastily during a time of war. Having recently broken free from the British Empire, the writers feared having too strong of a central government. With that fear, the writers left out certain laws that needed to be established in order
In the Declaration of Rights and Grievances issued by the Stamp Act Congress, they claimed that Parliament lacked the power to tax the colonies because they had no representation. While the Stamp Act was repealed, the colonists were never given representation in Parliament. In the “Declaration of the Causes and Necessity of Taking Up Arms”, issued by the Second Continental Congress, this same issue was cited as a justification for fighting. “[The British declare] that parliament can ‘of right make laws to bind us in all cases whatsoever.’ What is to defend us against so enormous, so unlimited power?” (Document 5). After ten years of disagreement over Parliamentary representation, the British were still unwilling to grant the colonists this right.
