In 1838 and 1839, the Indian removal policy forced the Indians to give up their land and walk to Indian Territory (present-day Oklahoma). In the end, the trail stretched through nine states, covering 2,200 miles; over 4,000 Indians lost their lives due to cold, disease, or hunger. Marion
The military authorities eventually outlawed performing the dance. Problems worsened when Sitting Bull was killed during arrest in December 1890. At Wounded Knee Creek cavalry rounded up many members of the Sioux tribe. On December 29, 1890 there was a massacre. Around 300 Native Americans were killed, as well as seven of their infants.
Soldiers escorted the natives to their new territory. Thousands of Cherokees died on the journey to their destination due to harsh conditions, “whooping cough, typhus, dysentery, cholera and starvation”. Protection of territory was promised to them but later ended in 1907 when Oklahoma became a state. The Indian territories have completely disappeared. America desired more land and spread of influence.
A 15 month long war between the settlers and the Native Americans had just ended in 1676. It wiped out nearly a third of New England’s towns, obliterated its economy, and killed nearly 10% of the adult male population. The “war” was known as King Philip’s War. King Philip was the Native American’s “leader”. And during 1698, the English king and queen, William and Mary, started a war with France in the American Colonies.
The Genocide: Trail of Tears/The Indian removal act During the 1830s the united states congress and president Andrew Jackson created and passed the “Indian removal act”. Which allowed Jackson to forcibly remove the Indians from their native lands in the southeastern states, such as Florida and Mississippi, and send them to specific “Indian reservations” across the Mississippi river, so the whites could take over their land. From 1830-1839 the five civilized tribes (The Cherokee, Choctaw, Seminole, and Chickasaw) were forced, sometimes by gun point, to march about 1,000 miles to what is present day Oklahoma. While making this gruesome travel more than 4,000 Indians died from disease, starvation and treacherous conditions. This travel became known as the “trails of tears”.
The Alamo is a stronghold for Spanish missionaries. On February 6th, 1836, Santa Anna attacked. 189 Texans tried to fight back. On March 6th, 1836, all rebels were killed and there were 1500 casualties. Just like the Goliad Massacre, some people were spared.
At the conclusion of the ceremony, he told the community of Native Americans that he had had a vision in which the U.S. Army was overcome. Sitting Bull would go on to lead from the sidelines a successful conquering of General Custer at the Battle of Little Bighorn; at this point he was past fighting years, but sent two nephews into battle in his stead, White Bull and One Bull. An estimated 80 Lakota and Cheyenne were killed in this conflict, along with a total obliteration of all five companies of General Custer. Because Sitting Bull led this great victory from the sidelines, many rumors spread about him with common people, especially settlers. Some even
Some of the Mongol rampages had little to no survivors, others had up to 2,000,000 fatalities (Doc. E). Furthermore, in a manuscript titled Book of Kings, there is an art piece made around 1300, that shows the execution of a group of people (Doc. F). In detail, some people have their head buried in the ground, and others are being shot in the chest with arrows (Doc.

The battle of Gettysburg was one of the most devastating clashes in the Civil War, but it quickly became a turning point for the Union army. In July of 1863, 35 miles from Pennsylvania 's capitol, the confederate army under General Lee attacked the Union forces at Gettysburg for three days straight (History.com Staff). Out of the many battles in the war, the battle at Gettysburg was most brutal. Out of 170,000 soldiers on both sides, 51,000 were either killed, wounded, or missing (History.com Staff). After the battle of Gettysburg, thousands of fallen soldiers were haphazardly buried in poorly made graves.
