Amerigo admits to killing the natives of that tribe, but he had a very just reason, which was self defense and to protect the honor of poor defenseless natives. That tribe had acted cruelly for no reason, killing weak natives, this was flooring to Amerigo and he had to do something. Amerigo did something very brave and honorable, yes he killed, but at least he had a good reason. Amerigo planned to kill but didn’t expect it to be the first step. How could such a developed tribe act as such savages?
Those who were rebelled were killed slowly because of hard labor. Natives were forced to bring certain amounts of gold to the Spaniards. If they failed, they were executed. The Spanish committed illegal crimes in cities such as Cholula which was home to thousands of families. Slaughter filled many places, leaving several
It is clear that the Mongols committed many ruthless and brutal acts in his life, and he is one who wiped out entire villages and innocent men, women, and children. However, one aspect of their brutality, though, is more prominent than the others: the brutality towards religion and ignorance and manipulation of the human mind. In one primary source, we see that Chinggis Khan marched into a village with 20,000 men and extracted the richest 280 men in the village. He told them that they had sinned, and told them that he was the punishment of god, sent to their village to punish them for their sins. The mongols then started taking money from the rich people, as their punishment for sinning.
In the Exodus event and the events of El Salvador there was a leading authority that governed each region. In both Egypt and El Salvador the governmental authority was corrupt. In the Exodus event, the Pharaoh controlled the entire government, the region, and all of the people. The Pharaoh and other leading authorities were responsible for enslaving their people and leaving them impoverished. This Egyptian government only worked for their own benefit and tortured or killed anyone who challenged them.
After a beginning of worshiping and honoring of these thought to be gods, the Aztecs moved to fear for their city and their lives. A fear that was rightly justified by the merciless killings of their people and their kings. The Spanish wiped out an entire nation with their weapons and their diseases, only further proving that the relationship between these two great people was one that was destined to fail from the first footstep on Mexican soil by the Spanish. With the overpowering greed and disregard for life, the Spaniards took over the city of Tenotchlan and never looked back, never regretting the choices they made out of gluttony. The relationship between the Aztecs and the Spanish declined rapidly over time, as the Spanish wasted no time in murdering solely for the accumulation of gold and land.
When a single shot was fired likely from a soldier they began shooting with Gatling guns nonstop. They killed all of the Native Americans present without remorse and shouted “this is for Custer”. This tragic event was horrific and by the 1900’s ninety six percent of the Native American populations were gone. These were some of the most tragic events that occurred to Native Americans in the history of the United States. Additionally, the Dakota conflict that led to the hangings of 38 Native Americans is the biggest mass execution to occur in United States.
There were people dying at every second of the Reign of Terror, dozens of people were dying because of Robespierre and the guillotine. This was considered as a humane way of killing people because everyone died the same way and it was immediate (Doc. F). Unfortunately, many of the citizens were dying without a good reason or a fair trial. The citizens and counter-revolutionaries were being executed for the slightest thing such as saying a careless word of criticism about the government.
The Spanish, despite giving the Aztecs permission to hold the celebration, were “seized with an urge to kill the celebrants” and ensued with the trapping and massacre of the Aztec celebrants (The Broken Spears, The Spaniards Attack the Celebrants). The Spanish hunted down and slaughtered every celebrant, even though the Aztecs were not a threat to them and posed no harm. The diametric responses to the inequality between the Aztecs and the Spaniards is clear: the Aztecs are submissive and respectful towards the Spanish, and often resort to hiding out of fear. In contrast, the Spanish are needlessly aggressive, avaricious, and intimidating; they demand gold, destroy the meaningful treasures of the Aztecs, seize Motecuhzoma’s treasures, and violently
Yes that I can see that but is it worth celebrate a guy for killing indians(Taino), selling them as slaves to get work and food out of them. Is that what a holladay for? no it is not a holladay is for heroes and people who did good things for us like MLK(Martin Luther King). That is what a holladay should are is about.So that is what my point is!!!! !!!!!
The colonists barely made it through winter as they had assistance with all necessary aid by the six or seven people who were immune of diseases. Only fifty out of one hundred colonists have survived the time of suffering. In the article, “Colonial America Depended on the Enslavement of Indigenous People”, Marissa Fessenden states, “In 1637, they burned a village on the banks of the Mystic River in southeastern Connecticut, killing 400 to 700 Pequots.” The colonists had murdered natives by destroying their homes and territory. During the Pequot war, many of their tribe members were lost. This weakened the natives in war as they had very little men to send to resist the colonists.
